There hasn't been much happening here at Chez Magpie that's worth sharing. I finished the backing on the latest landscape and put the label on (boring); I tidied up my sewing studio (yawn); and I cut out and started making a bunch of elastic masks for my family (tedious). The only highlight over the past couple of days was a flying trip to the little local fabric shop this morning to pick up some 'kid' fabric to make some masks for our grandsons. It's sounding like there's a distinct possibility that the kids will have to wear masks if they go back to school in September so a grandma needs to be prepared.
It's been quite hot here the past few days so I have the curtains drawn to attempt to keep the heat at bay as much as possible so that explains the darkness of the photo.
- If you have kids, perhaps THIS would be a fun summer activity for them.
- THIS is a cute idea for your balcony or patio. I'm sure you could come up with other themes as well.
- HERE is a little wallet pattern that could serve a number of uses (carrying a tea bag for instance!).
- HERE is another cute little idea that would use up scraps and take no time to make!
Today, instead of a quote, how about a little cartoon....
