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.

It continues...

Here are a couple more seam treatments from Block 2 of my current project...

Straight stitches & French Knots or beads were used for both of these treatments.

And, for your usual dose of mumblings, how about these...

- There's a picture tutorial HERE for marking a very interesting cloth bag.

- If you have a little girl in your life, perhaps you'd like to make her a special princess dress from THIS pattern.

- THESE would be fun to make for little ones and, even better, good for stash reduction too!

- There's a really pretty crocheted shawl pattern HERE (and while you're there, be sure to click on the 'Free Patterns' area - there are lots more patterns available!)

Today the quote is from Leo Buscaglia...."Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around"
