Am I making sense?  Sound like a lot of trouble??? It’s not really.  And since you are so nice to oblige me in this…I will be adding a toile apron to go with your new sewing book!  A one of a kind toile apron made by Moi!  How does that sound?  Pretty sweet huh? The deadline to leave a comment is Thursday at noon CST.  I will do the drawing Thusday evening.  And just so you know…I will be doing a Valentine’s Giveaway as well!

Good luck everyone! Now leave me a comment and I will put your name in the trusty mason jar!

Oh, how I’d love to have this book and the apron… Just this morning at the market, I had to stop to pick up a sewing magazine; it looked like so much fun to have some new inspirations for quick sew projects…
