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.

Not much

Nope, not much happening here at Chez Magpie that could be classed as being anything more than yawn-worthy.  Things are being created but not a single one of them is in any state worth showing as these photos will attest...

This is the top of my cutting table...there's fabric there, waiting to be cut and some 'stuff on the back that needs to be stored somewhere....








This is the corner of the couch - three different projects-worth of yarns, waiting to be turned into something.





There's a lot of waiting happening here.  And I know you're also waiting - waiting for something even remotely interesting to occur here.  You might have a long wait!

-  Karen Ruane has announced a new 6-week class called 'Handkerchief Extras' that sounds like great fun....have a look HERE to find out more.

- I don't decorate for halloween, but if I did I would surely be tempted to scare the daylights out of trick or treaters with one of THESE.   Or maybe THIS one!

- the new issue of 'QUILTSocial' is out and you can read that HERE.

-  There's also another free online magazine for quilters and you can register for it HERE (there's also a Premium version that requires payment if you want to go that route).  The free version is quite interesting so you might like to check it out first.  (I have no affiliation with either of these, but thought I'd share in case you're interested).

Today the quote is another anonymous one..."Two of the hardest tests in life...The patience to wait for the right moment and the courage to accept that you've waited for nothing"

I dare say more is happenng in your home than in mine. Every day I have such great plans and by the end of the day I find my plans have totally negated themselves. Trees are turning as the weather is cooler. I watched the Harvest Full Moon last night and it was gorgeous! Halloween is near...xo

It's difficult to continually show the things one is working on. I'm without a studio and have taken over the dining table and one counter. Been closer to family is more important than anything else. I'm not a Halloween person either. Thanks for the links.
