Hello friends, Did anybody notice that I forgot about the long weekend when I was writing last week's contest? Whoops! Thank goodness I remembered before I set off for work yesterday morning! After all that waiting, here's what the random number generator had to say: And the winner of the copy of The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen is...Sherrie! And I'm not sure, but it seems like she'll be pretty excited to have won. Congratulations, Sherrie! Keep an eye on your inbox for an email from me. A great big thank-you goes out to all of you who left a note last week – I really enjoyed meeting you all. It looks like Make+Do readers are spread out clear across the country, and even down into the States. Each little comment put a smile on my face. Each week I find myself wishing that I had a prize for each of you. This week's giveaway is another good one. In keeping with all the talk about sewing, I've got a copy of The Sewing Book by Alison Smith for one lucky Make+Do reader. This gorgeous hardcover book covers it all, discussing tools and techniques, fabric and thread, and projects from mending to making clothes to home decorating. There are tons of photos and clear instructions; I think this would be a great addition to any sewer's library. Leave a comment on this post by Friday, August 7 at 5 p.m. and I'll post a winner next Monday, August 10. This week, I'm wondering if you managed to fit any crafting in over the long weekend. Here's a peek at what I was up to: More details on that little project to come soon! Have a great day, folks!
