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.

Because you just never know!!!

 No, you never know what you might find when you visit here at Chez Magpie, as this will attest.   This is a photo of our #4 Grandie modeling a dress that was once mine (you know, from back before dirt!)...

Photo shared with the permission of #2 daughter-in-love!


- If you're a crocheter, perhaps you might like to play along with THIS CAL.

- If you go HERE you can see a virtual quilt show of the contest winners from the Des Moines show.

- If you're a knitter and have problems with joining yarn mid-project, perhaps THIS article might be of interest.

- THESE are incredible!

Today's quote is from Maya Angelou..."Hate.  It has caused a lot of problems in this world but has not solved one yet"

  1. I've been here at your site for ages catching up on all the posts. Loved your Nutcracker and it's going to be circular you say. Interesting. And I too have sunk a bit since the Queen passed away...it was a heavy distraction for sure. I've been going down rabbit holes with following your amazing variety of links too. All such creative and inspiring stuff, thank you! Meanwhile, this little child is adorable...I would love to hold her! And how precious she has your dress!

  6. What a precious little baby girl! I just want to kiss her little cheeks a couple hundred times! I remember little dresses like that! In fact, in my kindergarten picture I’m wearing one so very similar!

    1. I don't expect she will wear it beyond the photo op, but it made for a fun picture anyway. I don't know if the fabric would hold up to actual wearing.
