Blog Hop Give Away

Today I have a give away from my good friend Cheryl who has a new book out called SEW embellished! The nice thing about this book is there are lots of projects that can be accomplished in a few hours.

There are some great tips in here about how to personalize your piece. How to make buttons, using stamps with polymer clay, how to use thread as a design element, just tons of ideas for making it your own!

Cheryl's instructions are clear and easy to follow. You can turn something from ho-hum into wow with some simple yet dazzling techniques.


Here's a picture of the quilt on the cover. I love the "tweet tweet" that she made with the polymer clay. Such a fun touch. There are also instructions on how to use digital pictures. I am already thinking of wedding or shower gifts using that technique!

Here are all the blogs that are participating, so you have many chances to win a fabulous book that you will use over and over again. Be sure to check them all out.
