Winners, and Weekly Giveaway #4

Happy Monday!

Getting the week off to a good start, I’m pleased to announce the winners of last week’s contest. picture-11 Congratulations to Sherrie and Whistlepea! You’ve each won a copy of  Sew What! Bags by Lexie Barnes. I think you’ll have a great time with this book, and, as always, I’d love to see what you make. Look for an email from me in your inbox soon.

(Thanks to everyone who submitted a question last week – I’m delighted with the range of topics you covered and looking forward to working my way through the list. I have a feeling it’s going to be a learning experience for me, too! )

On to Weekly Giveaway #4…This week, I’ve got a treat for the crochet-fanatics in the crowd. Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot by Mary Beth Temple, is sure to strike a note of recognition whether you’ve got a thing for granny squares and ripple blankets, or if you just love all things yarn-related.

For your chance to win this book, please tell me  something that you’ve learned from your crafting. It could be something little (for example, I’ve learned I can’t cut a straight line with a pair of scissors to save myself) or something big (if I like a project enough, I’ll stick with it for years). I’m curious!

For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post telling me your crafty teachable moment by Friday, May 15, at 5 p.m. I’ll answer the questions as part of the ongoing Crafty Q+A series, and (because of the long weekend) I’ll announce a winner next Tuesday morning.

Have a great week!
