Surprise! Look What Arrived In The Mail

A package was waiting for me when I returned from my quilting getaway. (More about that tomorrow.)

I opened it and was thrilled to see Sew the Peffect Gift.  It has just hit the quilt shops.

There was not just one copy, but 2 copies.  Martingale wants me to give one away on my blog! Yippeeee.


It is packed with 25 projedcts that make terrific gifts. I was thrilled when they invited me to submit a project for this book.

My project, "Heartfelt Journal",  is a journal cover made from felted wool.  It is sized to fit one of those marble composition notebooks.  Everytime your recipients writes in it, they will think of you!
Here are some of my  favorite projects:




So if you would like a copy of this brand new book, make sure you are a Follower, leave a comment and a way for me to contact you.  I will pick the winner on Monday.
