Happy reading!

A few weeks ago I had a wonderful email from The Sewing Directory to tell me I was one of the winners of a book giveaway by Search Press!! I was sooooo excited!!
Even more so when the actual book arrived.
The book is "Flower Power Patchwork" by Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen, I believe a Danish author.
Now I love my stash of sewing and quilting books and although I tend to get lots of ideas, inspiration and tutorials from the Internet I don't know about you but I still love a good book!
Firstly the photography in the book is gorgeous which makes for some wonderful projects. (Unfortunately my photography on a dull, rainy day is not so good so I do apologise!!) There is a wonderfully illustrated section at the beginning all about equipment, materials and techniques to support the projects which there are over 20 to choose from including pincushions, bucket bags, a table runner and pencil cases. The other area that stood out in this book is the wonderful fabrics that have been used in all the projects.
 I already have a list of the projects I want to have a go at - I just need to figure out which one to do first!!
(I have no affiliation to either company and the review of the book is my own personal opinion, I just love a good book and wanted to share!!)
