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.

14 and a teeny bit of 15


Today our look back will include 2014 and a little bit from 2015 (are you bored yet?????).  


In February of 2014 I completed work on this needle roll...


You can see further pictures of the outside and the inside by
going to my post HERE  and HERE.

In September I was able to share this...


....which was the 'January' page for the
2014 crazy quilt calendar sponsored by 
Pam Kellogg (KittyandMeDesigns).

By October I was working hard on creating gifts for 
Christmas and this crocheted doily was one of them...

Pattern was found on Ravelry - "Rose Doily #804"

Also in October I completed a commission for one of my crazy quilted purses.  

The pattern is "The Gadabout' and is by Studio Kat Designs

In December I completed work on my second White Cloth, inspired by an online class from Karen Ruane...



Moving on, we will now have a peek at what I was doing in 2015...

In March I completed work on a rose-themed hussif...


You may see more pictures and read more about it HERE and HERE.  

For those of you who appreciate my sense of humor, perhaps you'd like to
be reminded of it by reading my post from March found HERE.  

And if you go to THIS post you can see some of the results of what
was happening in March!

Also in June, I completed this hussif with an Asian theme...


If you would like to see more pictures, have a look HERE.

- HERE's a great little stash buster that any stitcher would love to receive as a gift.

- The fall issue of 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' is now available!  I must admit to being rather happy because there are several of my things in there....one of my barns and a tutorial for the denim and lace bag that you've seen previously on my blog.  Be sure to pick up your copy by going to MagCloud HERE or Etsy HERE



- If you have a little girl in your life who loves the Disney princesses, perhaps you'd like to make her one (or several!) of THESE!

- That same little girl might just adore one of THESE simple to make dresses.

Another of the anonymous quotes from my collection..."If you have a family that loves you, a few good friends, food on your table and a roof over your head, you are richer than you think"

  2. Oh Dear! Just when I think I should make a quilt I am reminded why I do NOT. Math! I still cannot figure out your block quantities. I definitely see all the amazing and wonderful things you create. As for the quote today...I am a very rich person and I am very grateful! <3

    1. Thank you Becki! I had SO much fun doing that needle roll and the rose-themed hussif too. Went over the top with both of them, but oh well.

  5. Nope, I could never get tired or indeed bored with seeing your pretties you have imagined. I love the big flashy flower in the centre of your hussif. Did I know you crocheted?? Love that doily!
