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'm sorry


I'm sorry about my lack of posting for the past week or so.  Last week was just one of those weeks where I was out more than I was in and there just wasn't anything to show, nor was there time to search out my normal mumblings.  The past few days have been spent dealing with a family funeral and a visit from our #1 son and his family (in order to attend the funeral).  It's been busy and there has been absolutely nothing done around here beyond the basics.  I don't want you to think I've given up blogging because I will be back with the regular doses of mumblings in another few days I hope.  In the meantime, here are a few mumblings that I had already collected...


- THESE are rather cute little guys that could be used in many ways.  And THESE are too!

- Have a peek at the things made by THESE artists!

- There are LOTS of really nice Christmas decorating ideas HERE.  And even more HERE!

- And if you go HERE there's a really easy (stash busting!) Christmas ornament pattern that would be quick to make.

- THIS is a really cute idea for mason jar gifts!

    1. Thank you Becki. And yes we did enjoy the family visit, although dealing with a very active 4 year old who never stops talking was a challenge at times!

  6. Breaks are necessary, especially when you're dealing with a loss. I've been MIA for so long and am just NOW finding brief moments to at least VISIT other blogs! I love the Christmas decor ideas, especially the thumb tack art and the white lights in the sheer curtains.

  8. Sorry for the family's loss. I hope the funeral went well and was a celebration of the persons life. Good to know you are not unwell, that's what I usually think when people aren't posting and they are usually regular.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
