Winners, and Weekly Giveaway #5

Hello, crafters! I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and got to spend a little time outside, maybe watching some fireworks or working in the garden. I went on a little fabric shopping spree (thank you very much, Canada Revenue Agency) and came home with 6 metres of Kona cotton and 31 fat quarters. Just look at that teetering stack of fabric! 32fq Yes, I finally started the Single Girl quilt by Denyse Schmidt (the title is derived from the design, a play on the traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern). Did you manage to fit any crafting in? Now, on to the important business of the day. The winner of last week's giveaway, the book Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot by Mary Beth Temple, is... picture-12 ... Lorraine, who claims to be "crochet challenged." Congratulations, Lorraine, and here's hoping that this book sets you on the right path! For Weekly Giveaway #5, I've got a treat for the apron enthusiasts in the crowd. The Perfect Apron (35 fun and flirty designs for you to make), by Rob Merrett, is jam-packed with ideas for aprons. I think there's something in there for just about every occasion, whether you're hosting a cocktail party, having a special guest over for high tea, or having a bake-along with your favourite wee one. (Or maybe you're looking for something new to make before the next Tie One On deadline? The summer theme is " Pie Makin' Apron," which reminds me of the wonderful movie Waitress. Now there's a way to spend a weekend: watching movies, making aprons and eating pie. I think I'd start with Rhubarb Sour Cream Pie. Yum!) For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite craft-inspiring movie by Friday, May 22, at 5 p.m. Do you take a second glance at your drapes every time you watch The Sound of Music? Do you go crazy for the cut-and-paste scenes in Amelie? Do you reach for your sewing basket, not the Kleenex box, when you see that Stepmom is on?  I’ll round up the answers in an upcoming inspiration post, and, as usual, I'll post a winner next Monday. Have a great week!
