International Affair (kinda)

 I have "met" some the nicest peeps through blogging and am truly enjoying the new friendships! One of my new pals, who happens to live across the ocean, hosted a giveaway recently and I was lucky enough to win.(woo hoo!)

Thank you again, Claire!

Claire is the woman behind Polkadot-Pretties and is suppah talented! She blogs about her adventures in sewing and y'all she is as sweet as pie an English pastry! The giveaway item was the book "Bend-the-Rules Sewing: the essential guide to a whole new way to sew" by Amy Karol. This was one of the twenty sewing books I wanted to own, so I knew that I had to enter. 

She even threw in a surprise from her Etsy shop!

THE Book...not to be confused with "The Good Book"
Keep your eyes open because some magic is going to be happening soon. You'll like, I promise! 


  1. don't you just love Claire! She is one of my new friends too! One day, we all need to find a way to meet up!

  2. That looks like a great book. Good for you! Makes me want to get back to my sewing machine...
