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.

Here's another one....

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


This one is a simple colour-match page done in the shape of a ball.  I don't know if it shows up in the photo very well, but I embroidered the colour names on the underneath ball so he can not only match colours, but also match  shapes and learn the words at the same time.  It's pretty basic, but it's a good learning tool I think.

- There's a cute free pattern HERE for some puppet mittens for little ones.  

- HERE you can find a nice tutorial for a makeup bag (or it could quite nicely hold sewing supplies too!).  Great for stashbusting, and for Christmas giving!

- There's a cute little knitted elf pattern HERE.  Looks like there are links available there for a lot more too.

- I think THIS free Christmas tree pattern would serve a multitude of uses.  I really like the design - perhaps for Christmas postcards?  Or embroidered on a larger piece - or smaller on a crazy quilt.  Lots of possibilities!

Today your quote is from John F. Kennedy...."Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.  And however undramatic the pursuit of peace, the pursuit must go on"

Very nice project for the wee one. Great links too. I do like the make-up bag / sewing kit (whatever). Thanks
