Craft Book Month

Over at Craft Buds it is Craft Book Month. Lots of books are being given away. I love to link up for fun and prizes. You might want to follow the link and see all the creations and signup for a few giveaways along the way.

To link up I need to write a blog post about a craft book and a project I made from it in 2013! So, here goes!

Patchwork Please by Ayumi Takahashi is one of my favorite books! I bought the book to participate in Zakka Along 2.0 : Patchwork Please Sew Along
As always with me, after a few projects, 10 other items needed to be made or taken up and I fell behind. I have still followed along and enjoyed everyone else's beautiful makes. My favorite items I made are the "Bell Pepper Hot Pads"! In the book they are coasters but the expert for that week Penny @ Sew Take A Hike showed us how to make hot pads!

There are still a two projects left if you are interested Zakka Along 2.0 : Patchwork Please Weekly Project Links!

Thank you for stopping by,
Until next time,
Create and be unique,

  1. Those hot peppers are sweet, Lisa. You sure are busy with sew many things! Thanks for sharing the links.

  2. Wish I had this book, everyone is making such fun things with it.

  3. Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog - it really made my day! I couldn't resist having a peek at your blog and I'm so glad I did - it's a visual feast! My fingers are itching to pull out my sewing machine again (so far I've managed to put a hem on a tablecloth - but I love that tablecloth with all my heart...)

  4. PS I'd like to follow you, but I'm not sure how. With other WP blogs, I just click a button and they go into a reader, but I can't seem to do that for Blogger blogs. Maybe I need to sign up for some sort of independent blog reader? I'm still so new to all this!

  5. These peppers are just beautiful.Thanks for sharing the link!


I love a two way conversation! Comments are appreciated! Blogger is making it almost impossible to reply to comments. I am reading them but responding is sometimes impossible! I am so sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to email me anytime. comlisajohnson thank you
