What Nut House? Giveaway #2

My lively grandchildren inspired the Nuthouse project in my new book, Playful Free-Form Embroidery. Their visits are a bevy of activity, never-ending gymnastics, and joyful chatter. I love them dearly, but sometimes I think I live in a nuthouse!

In celebration of my new book and nuthouses everywhere, I’ll be giving away items used in the book every Tuesday until the end of May. The first give-aways are all about the tools and materials you’ll need to complete projects like the Nuthouse. Leave a comment below, and you may be the lucky winner!

What I’m Giving Away!

An unusual tool you may not have in your sewing room is a pinking blade for your rotary cutter. In Playful Free-Form Embroidery, the pinking blade is used to trim the edges of the nuthouse design for the ladybug road.

The pinked fabric edge not only makes a rocky road for the ladybugs, but it is perfect for embellishment with a Fly Stitch.

Leave a comment on today’s blog, and you may be the lucky winner of a pinking blade for your rotary cutter. Please note I’ll be closing the giveaway on Thursday and announce the winner on Friday.
