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.

I'd like to say....grass is a'growin'....but...

....if I do, I can imagine how many 'hits' I'll be getting on my blog and most of them won't be of the desirable sort!!  

I have spent the entire afternoon putzing with the grass area for my barn.  I have auditioned a ton of possibilities, all of which have been...ahem....mowed.  I finally came up with this...


....and out of complete and total disgust with the whole thing, I have decided it's staying.  So there!!  Of course there's still embroidery to be added to hopefully blend it in more.  No matter what happens I am NOT changing it again!!!
(oh yeah - there WILL be leaves on the tree!)

- There's a cute little jack-o-lantern pattern HERE.  

- Most of you know how much I used to enjoy working with denim and all its offshoots, so you will understand why I find THESE fun!

- Kathy Shaw has written a great tutorial HERE about finishing crazy quilted hexagons.

- Yesterday I linked to some ideas for recycling old suitcases and I've come across another one I really like HERE.  Unfortunately I can't give proper credit for this one.  If anyone knows, please let me know!

Today your quote is from one of my very favourite characters...Eeyore...."A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference"

Ok, I really like the addition of the grasses. I'll like seeing where you go from here.
A little or a lot of embroidery always makes any project better.

Don't worry as you work through a piece. That's the process. The finished piece will be just perfect.
