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.

oh oh - and continuing on

The resident chef decided that making bread was a good thing to do yesterday and this was the result...

Recipe is from http://mycookingspot.com/soft-honey-oat-bread/

Not a calorie to it!!

Now on to the non-fattening portion of this post...




This one began with the chevron stitch (black); straight stitches (pink & green); cross stitches (blue) and finished off with beads or French knots.






This one is made up of cross stitches, straight stitches and lazy daisies.



And here's your mumblings...

- HERE is a great purse organizer - made from a placemat!

- THIS is a dual purpose item - a hot water bottle cover AND a sweet little cross stitch pattern too.

- How about one of THESE to help organize your sewing room or scrapbooking space?  

Today your quote is from Christina Rossetti..."Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished?  Yes - work never begun"

The purse organizer is great because you can lift it out, loaded, to change purses. This is just the sort of thing I like.

Compliments to the chef! Looks good.
I must say, your stitch samples are great. Must try some of them.
I do like that purse organizer - easy to make!

Great stitch combinations!
A purse organizer is always a big help.
I baked ginger bread this last week, a favorite with us in cool weather. It does have calories.
And I agree with that quote, right on.
