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

Block 2 continues

Here are a couple more  of the seam treatments that I used on block two of my courtship series...

Straight stitches and x's (black); fly stitches (orange); straight stitches (blue); lazy daisies (pink); and French knots or beads

Straight stitches (black); cross stitches (pink); straight and lazy daisies (green); and french knots

The mumblings for today...

- I was given a pair of slippers very similar to THESE for Christmas and I love them.  They are perfect to tote along when you're visiting, or perhaps have a few pairs on hand to offer to guests.

- THESE slippers are pretty popular around and about the internet and there's also a lace version of the pattern HERE  and a men's version HERE.

- Found THESE really cute crocheted flowers that could be added to pretty much anything.

- This is the latest scam that telemarketers are using .. apparently they are calling in hopes that you will answer and then they want you to say 'yes' or something affirmative (such as 'I agree').  They often ask if you can hear them....and of course your inclination is to say yes.  Then they use that response to trap you into a verbal contract.  Be aware, be safe!

Today your quote is from Haile Selassie....."We must become bigger than we have been; more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook.  We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice and owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community"


  1. Beautiful seams Mary Anne. Looking forward to seeing another completed block.... this quilt is going to look fantastic! Christine x

  2. Lovely seam treatments, I'm looking forward to more romantic embellishing.

  3. Your seam treatments are multi layered and have lots of beautiful interest. I love how you chart your seams because it makes it easy to see how many layers of stitchings you include. Such a great quote and if only or world could come together human to human.

  4. Never was there a more appropriate quote for this political climate! Thank you for the telemarketing advice; one always has to be aware of these things. More lovely seams, Mary Anne.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
