Bookrelease 100 applique motifs


I was thinking of doing some sort of virtual book release party here on my blog, but i wasn't really sure how to go about it and what to do and what not, so forget about it. It's here. It's out. My first book. In print. On the bookshelves. I'm doing a happy dance. I haven't stopped by the bookstore yet to spot my book, but i will do soon!

So what about a giveaway? Sounds good? Want to get a free signed copy of 100 applique motifs?

I'm not gonna make this hard for you. Leave a comment here to enter. If your write a little something on your blog (or myspace or what have you) about this giveaway or about the book and then leave a comment here, you'll get an extra entry in the drawing! Entries will close at Tuesday December 16th at midnight. Winner will be randomly picked and announced next week Wednesday! I'm sorry to say, but for now this giveaway is only for US addresses. (i promise, next giveaway will be international again)

Your book looks like it's full of cute ideas and designs, and I'd like to try applique (I'm a sewer), so... I'd love a copy of your book! :D

I hope I am not double posting this. Blogger gave me an error last time I tried to post.
I just wanted to say Congratulations on publishing your book! I'm sure it was a ton of hard work, but well worth it. The book looks adorable and I can't wait to take a look at it (even if I don't win a signed copy!).
I posted about this on my blog to help spread the word. Thanks for giving everyone the opportunity to be sparked by your creativity!

I would LOVE a copy of your book. I love applique, but so far have only used my own designs, though with my 11 month old daughter its difficult to do much creating, and I would love a way to make our thrift store finds more special for her.

Congrats on getting published! I'm still waiting to hear so I know how long it takes and how many times you have to get rejected before anything happens. So... Kudos to you!

I've got it already (I'm in the UK so wouldn't be able to take part in the draw anyway)- it is a gorgeous book! Several of my friends want it and I've had to part with my copy overnight so one of them can read it in bed... I hope it does well for you.
