I'm a day late in posting this AND (maybe worse!) I don't have any pictures for you. You DON'T want to see my cleaning/purging efforts in my sewing room which is what's been happening behind the scenes here at Chez Magpie.
Many of you will remember my true confession earlier of having FAR to many buttons for any person in this world. Fourteen (large!) jars AND a nearly full shoe box (see what I mean? Too many!). So....I've been spending my evenings sorting through them and....drumroll.....I am now down to *only* 10 jars!
Ten jars that look like this....
The only problem is that, although my plan was to get RID of the empty jars, they have now been snatched up by my DH for use in the kitchen. Drat - I almost had them out the door.....
I'm happy to announce that the spring issue of 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine is now available! There are some wonderful articles, how to's and eye candy in this issue and you can get your own by going HERE (or you can click on the picture of the current issue in my sidebar!).
Please remember that we are constantly searching for content for the magazine and welcome YOUR contributions! We are looking for how to articles, photos of your work, and any crazy quilting tips you want to share. You can go HERE for further guidelines. The magazine is entirely reader-written so please don't be shy!
- If you are a football fan and are having people over to watch the big game, perhaps you might like to serve THIS. Or maybe THESE? Or THIS?
- Seeing THIS made the wheels start to turn. Wouldn't it be fun to create a page like this; make copies (perhaps one for each month) and then write the names of the books you read in the 'spines'? At the end of the year you'd have a fun record of all you read. Hmmmm......???
- THESE would be cute to make for Easter.
- and THESE are cute too!
- If you'd like to make a wee teddy bear, how about THIS one? And HERE is a pdf for a simple bear.
