Re: Book Giveaway - Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase

I love craft books. I have two pillowcases that my grandmother made for me for Christmas shortly after I was married. I treasure them. I would love an idea as to what to do with them other than have them in the closet - a hidden memory that I see only when I go to the linen closet and really, really look. They are precious to me. It's time for a transformation.

Re: Book Giveaway: Chic & Simple Sewing by Christine Haynes

I starting sewing when I was a pre-teen. My mother taught me to sew. After I moved away from a long away from my birth home and started a family of my own, we used to talk about sewing projects. If I'd get in a jam, I'll call to ask for help or just advice. Now that she's no longer alive, I don't have the same drive to sew. Come to think of it, I haven't even had a new sewing book in that time either. I think a new book might spark my interest to start sewing again!

Hoping for a very renewed interest in sewing. I do have a new sewing machine my current husband bought me. So, I'm excited. The more I think about it, the more excited I become.
