Not much being accomplished on the stitching front although I am managing to get a little bit done on the next 'secret' project for the magazine (which also happens to be for a Christmas present).
So...as there are no pictures forthcoming from Chez Magpie, how about yet more mumblings....
1. Today I have three things from my friend Pam Kellogg that you might find of interest. First, she has put out a call for submissions for the Spring 2017 issue of 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' and, rather than me re-writing her words, here's what she said...
" Attention Crazy Quilters!!! I will be starting work on the Spring 2017 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine around October 1st. The theme for this issue will be BIRDS! Please consider submitting photos, tutorials or articles to me for that issue."
You can contact Pam through her blog HERE.
2. Pam has also re-released one of her very popular cross stitch patterns for another set of biscornu's. This time she features birds (robins, cardinals, goldfinches and blue jays) and you can find out more by going HERE. She has also released a sweet little *free* companion piece and you can find that HERE.
3. THESE fall under the best definition of 'awwww'. No pattern, but definitely drool-worthy anyway.
4. HERE's a cute pincushion pattern - these would make great gifts.
5. I found another of the 100+ free pattern links - this one is for zippered pouches. Some great ideas!
