Happy New Year!! I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year, and are as keen as I am to get back to some sewing and quilting, so with that in mind, welcome to 2013!!!
I don't really make NY Resolutions, as they invariably fail, but this year I have decided to make a resolution that
|Cosmo Bag from Amy Butlers Style Stitches|
|Knitting Bag from Poppy Treffry's Freehand Machine Embroidery|
1.Amendment- link up to the Book Review (this will be live Sunday 6th of January) Link up in comments to a blog post in the month of January for a book made project, something crafty, embroidered, sewn, or quilted- mention this competition, and link back to it.
2. For an extra entry, be a follower (you must have linked up a project), and tell me in the Book Review for Eline's book.
3. And for a 3rd chance to win, tell me about a great crafting book and what you like about it- I LOVE books, and my wishlist always needs new books adding, it's my birthday in March, and it stops all of the rubbish presents!! ; ). Also put this in the Book Review post for Eline's book (live on 6/1/2013).
The project doesn't have to be completely finished if it's a big one, so for example, if you're making a quilt, and the whole top is pieced, that counts for an entry, but if you're making a little pouch or cushion, then it should be pretty much done. It can be a project heavily inspired by a book pattern, for example, when I made this pouch
a few weeks ago, the embroidered pattern and basic style, came from the coaster pattern below in Stitch Craft Create, which I reviewed here, but obviously its not a coaster, I "up-projected" it.
Hope that makes some sense, any questions, ask away, and lets get some guilt free sewing in, a chance to win a new book, AND once we start to use up our "old" books, we have a guilt free excuse to get some more, yay!
