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.

It does a grandma's heart good

 Pictures of my grandsons, although I guess I might have to wonder about the gene pool that requires one of them to wear his underpants on his head!  



The other picture is our youngest grandbaby 'reading' his cloth book I made for him.  

- HERE's a really cute fall project - would make great gifts too.  You could also use the designs from HERE if you'd like.

- If you know someone who likes aprons, perhaps one of THESE will make the perfect gift?

- I don't know if you have the issues I have with getting neat corners when you're putting binding on any size quilt, but if you do and would like to try a great method that actually seems to work, have a look HERE.

Today your quote is from 'Braveheart' ...."Your heart is free, have the courage to follow it"

Cute grandsons! Doesn't everybody at some time or other wear underpants on their heads?? =) My, your youngest grandson has grown. How sweet he is reading the cloth book.

About the gene pool:this is where you say other side of family!!

I do like pinnies. Short for pinafores, aka aprons. Usually pinnies are neck to hem, aprons waist to hem, but I see all the above are included. I cook a lot, and have several, but I'm still tempted to think about another. I fancy a tabard style.

Hahaha...the gene pool. It is cute now but when they grow up and still wear underpants on their head is a bit distracting! LOL. Love the photos of your precious Littles (Theo is truly enjoying his book you made for him!). So many fun aprons and I really feel like I should sew one. I never think to actually wear an apron...even though I have a few. I even have my Grandpa's old "plumbing" apron he wore. They must be packed away though for now. Very good quote today...<3

Such cute GKs. I didn't realize the fabric book was so large. It's great!
I saved the pattern for the pot holders. Thanks for sharing.

Adorable photos, Mary Ann.
Boys do like to be ferocious at times!
And your younger grandson is enjoying the soft book you made
for him, that was a good idea.
Thanks for the tips.

Cute grandsons! Kids are so unpredictable. My granddaughter loves making funny faces for photos, so getting something sensible can be a challenge. The little one is enjoying his book. Thanks for sharing.
