  6. Oh wow Carol, that book looks fantastic!!!! I can't wait to see what you make! That little bag is super cute! X

  7. I saw this at the ABC Shop. For a non-sewer I was amazed at how much I wanted a copy! It is stylish and has very cute projects (like your Exhibit A there). Enjoy! x

  8. Yippee it arrived! I've made the handbag version of the wristlet for my sister and she loves it.

  9. Lucky girl...I hope you find some time to make and then show some goodies.

  10. Lucky you - what a great book to win! Part of the fun is deciding what to make and reading about it first. The little bag does look lovely.
