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.

Um,mmmmmm......

 Yawn.  Even I'm bored with me today.  Nothing to show you - nothing has happened that's saga worthy....even my soapbox is in need of a good polishing.  What's this world coming to?  My mind has been occupied with coming up with the baby quilt I have in mind but unfortunately modern technology hasn't advanced as far as being able to show inside-the-brain pictures.  


So.....onward, to the links.....

- I've never heard of THIS before!!  You learn something new every day.

- There are tons of fabric landscapes to see HERE

- Some of you, at least the sane quilters, might find this chart useful....


- Seeing the work of THIS amazing artist elicited an involuntary WOW from me!

- If I decorated for Halloween I'd be all over making one of THESE (and wouldn't it be fun in a Christmas theme too?).  I know you need to purchase the pattern, but I still thought it was a fun one to share.

- AND I think THESE are very cool!  I can imagine what my grandies would think of them!! (be prepared if you are grossed out by spiders)

- I can see using up some red scraps of fabric to make a bowl full of THESE for your fall decor.

Today's quote is from Brianna Wiest...."One day, the mountain that is in front of you will be so far behind you, it will barely be visible in the distance.  But the person you become in learning to get over it? That will stay with you forever.  And that is the point of the mountain"

    1. The quilt is in my mind and now just have to translate it into fact. It's going to be very simple because that's the way I roll when it comes to quilting.

    1. The quilt is going to be done on the K.I.S.S. principle because that's the only ones I know how to make!

    1. I had flirted with using the chart for making 9 patches but have opted for something even simpler. The apples are definitely cute and I think they'd be cute on a Christmas tree too.

  5. I've no doubt you will come up with something both simple and beautiful. You never disappoint. I am in awe of those stitched landscapes- for both beauty and dedication to the amount of stitches needed. Good quote.

    1. A little boredom is a good thing, but I don't like making a habit of it.

  9. You really do find the most interesting and varied links. The fabric landscapes are lovely as well as the amazing embroidered landscapes. I know how much work and time go into projects like these. Whew! I feel like I am still climbing that Mount Everest mountain. I am wondering what I will become when I grow up…except I much prefer keeping my child-like wonder alive and active. Enjoying Autumn.

    1. Glad to enjoy the links! I have fun searching for them and go down probably altogether too many rabbit holes during the search.

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.
