Sew Darn Cute Book Giveaway

I did say last week I would start doing a few giveaways so here's the first one!
Penguin Books Australia contacted me along with a few other craft bloggers and asked would I be interested in doing a post on
Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan .
I thought long and hard (about 2 seconds) whether this would compromise the integrity of my very posh blog , ha , and decided it wouldn't !
The sweetner was that Penguin would give me a copy of Sew Darn Cute to giveaway .
I admit I really haven't had too much of a chance to look at my copy properly but there seem to be an awful lot of postit notes marking projects for the to do list already .
The projects , as the title says , are Sew Darn Cute already but I can see lots of ways to play around with the designs and make a heap of fun things .
Would you like a copy ?
Just leave a comment , simple !
Seeing as Penguin Books will be sending the book to the winner it is open to anyone , anywhere !
Thankyou to all who entered this giveaway is now closed .
