Enough, already! How about a Give-Away?

Time to move along.  In my quest to reach an acceptable level of Feng Shui in my house, I am going through my books - especially my LARGE and diverse reference and research library.  I am a self-proclaimed book junkie impulse book buyer.  Baaaaaad combination.  Bad for me = Good for you!

This is a great book for sewers of all levels.  It has wonderful gift ideas and is a lovely, hardbound book with lots of photographs and a wide variety of projects.  It is also very similar to at least two others I have.  Sigh.


To be tossed in the fray for this book, just leave a comment of any kind below.  It doesn't have to deal with sewing - it can deal with sunrises, sunsets, guinea hens, or horseback riding.  Anything you feel like.  The deadline is Thursday, and I will be drawing and announcing the winner on Friday.

    MF - You are in!

    Kim - It's such a burden, right? There are a lot of great ideas in this book. I don't dare open it again...

  10. Oooh, wow! I keep saying I want to learn how to sew, and this is the second sewing reference I've seen today. Added to a few others I happened upon over the last week. A sign, perhaps? (I've never been good at taking a hint ;) Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Jaime - A very good skill to have! Of course, do as I say, not as I do. I am not that skilled.

  13. I need another book like I need another hole in the head but, hey... that 'last minute' in the title sparks my interest. I seem to fall into the 'last minute gift' type of person.

  16. I have enough fabric to open my own shop - enough to keep me awake at night worrying about what to do with it all. The idea of fabric gifts? Perfect!!!
