Fall Book Giveaway

Hello my friends I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for a brand new week.

First off, I want to wish all of our Canadian friends a very Happy Thanksgiving...Enjoy!

For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I like to have a giveaway at about this time of year..before the holidays are upon us.

This time, I have chosen a very special book for the giveaway, and it is from our very own Lola Nova -Whatever Lola wants, blog.

Simply Sewing with Lola Nova, was released last Fall in the UK and just now released here in the US.

When it first came out, I couldn't wait an entire year for it to get here so I ordered a copy last Fall

from The Book Depository and gave it to my sister for Christmas, she was thrilled and has found it a joy to use.




A bit of a confession is in order, I do believe....This fabric above, is from a sheet set that I had for sale

in my Etsy shop and Alex (Lola Nova) purchased it.




You can imagine my delight when I saw that Lola had used a piece of it (above) for project in her

book ( he, he..clapping hands and jumping up and down along with feeling a bit famous, ha!).





This adorable bag is just one example of  the many wonderful projects offered, along with special tips

and techniques, in this lovely sewing book by our sweet blogging seamstress.


Congratulations to Lola Nova on the success of her fist book.  You can visit Lola at her blog here. If you would like to take a look and check out a few pages, you can go to the Amazon page here.


To Enter Giveaway:

Just leave a comment by Thursday night.  I will be announcing the winner on Friday.

Have a happy day my friends.  xo

How fun it is that Lola was inspired by a purchase from your Etsy shop!
You have such a wonderful knack at selecting fabric.
