Last week’s giveaway winner for The Learning Curve Ruler is…Rhonda who said, “No, I never have either. I think because it “scares” me but maybe that ruler would take the scariness out of it ;>) thanks for the chance to win!” Let’s hope Rhonda can conquer that fear with the new ruler. Thanks so much to Linda Warren Designs for donating the rulers.
Today I’m trying a new book from Martingale and Company (That Patchwork Place) called “Stitched for Fun” by Fiona Goble.
The book features embroidery so all you embroiderers or embroidery wanna be’s listen up. This book is CUTE…SO, so cute! It makes me wish I had more little ones in my life for make things for. I know my daughter Kayla would have loved wearing these little canvas shoes when she was little.
I love this little motif…perfect for your little girl who loves fairies and angels.
Here’s a little owl….
All of my girls would have loved a little pencil case like this…
I know you’re probably thinking cute Jo, but I have a little boy….okay. Here’s robots for him.
No fear…there’s goodies for you too.
I love the yarn box….and this laundry bag….
My favorite of all includes…what else but a dog!!
There are 35 embroidery projects in the book. If you are new to embroidery, don’t fear. There are great stitching directions in the beginning of the book. It shows a variety of stitches and directions to make stitch. The book also includes direction on how to construct the project. So it’s a win-win. Some embroidery books only give the motifs and the reader has to figure out how to construct the projects on their own. All in all this is a fun little book. I know my girls would have loved any of the projects in the book.
If you want a chance to win the book, leave a comment telling me if you have done embroidery in the past of if embroidery would be something new you are trying….I’ll pick a winner next Tuesday.
