Birthday Giveaway

Today is my birthday, and to celebrate I am giving away a copy of the book mentioned in my previous post. If you're interested in Purses, Bags, & More, leave a comment here to be entered in the giveaway. The drawing will take place in one week on April 9th; the winner will be chosen randomly.

Today I plan to spend some time in my sewing room. It's been too long since I've sewn, and I do miss it. The busy-ness of life has a way of pushing out the things I enjoy most, like sewing. I'll let you know if I accomplish anything today. :)

Happy sewing,
Ruth

  40. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Birthday! Please enter me in your book giveaway! I too find life sometimes gets in the way of our creativity. I have made a basket of yarn and crochet hooks that sits in my living room so that I can crochet while relaxing in the evenings or in the very early mornings hours after I have my daily devotions. I don't have to worry about getting out alot of supplies because it's all handy and I can just simply put it away when I need or want to.
