What’s going on here? My site started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.
Today I’m tickled to have a copy of Alicia Paulson’s second book Embroidery Companion: Classic Designs for Modern Living to give to one lucky winner. Alicia is one of those people I’ve known online for almost as long as I’ve had an internet connection, and whom I’m happy to say is just as awesome and warm in person, and I adore the love and care she puts into all her work. Her take on embroidery shows a fondness for the past but has a modern and cheerful way about it. She also has a delightful blog, Posie Gets Cozy where she talks about food, dogs, gardening and the joys of hammocks. And she produces patterns for sewing, crochet and embroidery as well as offering the occasional carefully compiled craft kits which sell out crazy fast, her latest was the Daisychain ABC Sampler, and I love her felt Christmas ornaments. You can find everything at her online shop Rosy Little Things.
If you’d like to win the copy of Embroidery Companion please leave a comment with this post and, if you’d like, answer this question: What is the first craft you remember doing? Though my mother has evidence of earlier creations the first thing I remember was using cut fruit as stamps to decorate t-shirts on a rainy afternoon during a vacation. Your turn, you’ve got until Friday, May 27th at 10 a.m. PST to enter, the fine print applies. Good luck! Closed, thank you so much for entering!
