Gooseberry Patch Stitching for the Kitchen Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway!

Introducing Gooseberry Patch's new book Stitching for the Kitchen: 30 Easy Projects for the Heart of Your Home

The projects inside are just wonderful! I was excited to receive a copy of the book.
The book includes full size patterns in an envelope that is attached to the inside back cover.
The patterns and instructions for the 30 projects are in the first 117 pages of the book.  Each project includes a full size photo of the completed project as well as illustrations that go along with the steps to make them.
Pages 120-142 include Essential Techniques, Embroidery Techniques & Motifs, and Measurement Conversion Chart & Resources.

I have a start on the Circular Rag Rug:

I've been using another pattern to make plastic bag holders, but I really like the pattern they give so much better.  I will be making a lot more of these.
On the Circular Rag Rug, I thought I had plenty of fabric cut, sewn and made into tubes, but I was wrong.   I will complete the rug one day soon.  I love how it's turning out.

There are lots of the 30 projects that I want to make, but here are 2 that I plan on making next.

Sewing Bag/Organizer:
