400th Post!

I can't believe that this is my 400th post! 


I knew that it was coming and thought I should do something special. Then I remembered that I have this book that I am supposed to pass on, but with everything that happened this summer I had forgotten about it.


If you would like to be entered to win this charming book, just leave a comment on this post and I will use RNG to pick a winner next Friday (the 28th of October). I will ship internationally, and please  make sure
I have a way to reach you. 

Now to get ready for the Friday Night Sew-In! More Dresden Plates,


I have 14 so far and I need 25 (they are 10").

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


The winner of the book is Carla! Thanks to everyone who entered.
