MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

and another....

Here's another page for the quiet book...




I know it's hard to tell in this picture, 
but there is lace in all the windows.

The entire 'house' opens (in one piece...see the stitching along
the left side?) to reveal this...


- I found THIS fun idea for a possible gift for a teenager.  Well, some adults would find it pretty fun too, come to think of it!

- Do you have some old CD's that you don't know what to do with?  How about making THESE angels?

- Pam Kellogg is releasing her 'Cats & Quilts'  cross stitch designs.   Have a look HERE for January's and HERE for February's.  There will be a design suitable for each month.

- HERE's a really cute knitted Christmas ornament - a good stash buster AND a great gift for a knitter!  And how about THIS one?

Today your quote is from Watterson Lowe...."Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years.  People grow old by deserting their ideals.  Years wrinkle the face, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul"
