Great giveaway & great book find!

AllieBDallie is hosting an awesome giveaway for any of you scrapbookers out there. Lots of goodies, so go check it out -- or don't so I have a better chance of winning! Just kidding. Go look. There's a ton of cute stuff to read about on her blog, including my new obsession, appliqued projects.

My grama and folks came for a short visit earlier this week. Grama brought with her a sewing book (Reader's Digest Complete Guide To Sewing) that she's had on her shelf for years, thinking I'd get more use out of it than her. What a great resource, especially for anyone new to the sewing world. Lots of great info about supplies, techniques, different fabrics, and more. I've already learned a lot of this through trial and error, but would have loved to have had this book years ago. I can't find a current photo of the book and am too lazy to take a photo right now, but Google it online for the latest editions if you're looking for a solid reference book.
