What a neat idea! Love your website!

Larissa Stretton

That's a sure way to get us lurkers out of the closet, huh? Offer something totally kewl!! Actually I would have added a comment today anyway because I just LOVE your embroidery pieces on today's post! They are so adorable and as one who has also been stricken by the "what else can I add?" but, I enjoyed looking at the them to see what ELSE was there!! Also loved your blanket project idea, but never mentioned it before, sorry.....

Thanks for the wonderful "eye" candy!

How cute is that! What a great book, and what a thoughtful way for you to start off the holiday season.


I'd like a chance to win the book. Thanks for the opportunity.


I've wanted this book forever! How generous of you!


OH, how cute those little transfers are! I love them. I won't win, I never win anything, but those little patterns sure are adorable so I had to tell you thanks for sharing!


I love looking at your blog and thinking of how to use the patterns! Lovely.


Oh, sweet!! This would certainly help with my handmade Christmas this year. :)
The only non-handmade things allowed on my Christmas list? Yours and Alicia's books. A girl's gotta have super-duper craft books to keep her going, you know.


I can't make promises on no pushing and shoving to get my hands on a Japanese embroidery book. It's very generous of you Vicki!


so cute!


Such a cute book! :]


Gorgeous book! Toss my name in the hat for your giveaway, please!

Oh my gosh!!! I looked and looked at the Houston Quilt Festival for these books and couldn't find any - I would be so excited to just look thru the book and make notes!! How cool is this giveaway!!!!!!!


Oh my gosh that book looks adorable! I've been doing a little embroidery, but all I really have are the 'how-to' guides (i.e. Reader's Digest). That would be so cute!

Melissa Ringstaff
