MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Ah, one, ah, two...

 .....and, another advent is underway!  This one is using all the colours in that pile of threads I showed you last time (with a few more added, of course).  I will be using the same ornaments (ie. there will be a snowman, a Christmas pudding, etc.) but the cross stitching will be different from the ones I've used already.  I want the calendars to be the same in construction but different in ornaments....sort of.  If that makes any sense whatsoever?

So.....here are the first two (not blocked yet....sorry!)....


The last chance to get one of my landscapes for a reduced price!  The sale is over on the 15th.   You can see what's on offer by clicking on the 'Landscapes For Sale' category in my sidebar.  

- THIS is another one of those things that made me smile.

- Scroll down HERE to be wowed by some impressive art!

- HERE is a great use-up-stash project that would make great gifts.

- Have a look at the work of THIS artist as well!

  1. The softer muted colors are perfect! Third time's charm so this one should be oh-so-special. I am injoying my little needle book and magazine! What fun to have a bit of your studio beside me here! Thank you Mary Anne!

    1. These little stitcheries are such fun to create - none of them take a whole lot of time so that's an advantage.

    1. I can't be there to play with my grandkids in person unfortunately so I make them things instead. They will grow out of liking homemade things soon enough so I'm getting my fun in while I can.

    1. I could be working on other projects but I seem to be obsessed with all things little and cross stitched at the moment. Might as well go with it!

    1. Tireless? No - just easily bored. I have to have something to do at all times or I can't stand myself.

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.
