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.

Win a Signed Copy of Open by Craig Gross!

Get inspired and energized with this new, life-changing book, Open, by Craig Gross, available now wherever books and eBooks are sold.

In his new book, Open, Craig is letting you discover a life of freedom, confidence and success by being honest and transparent with people you truly hold dear.

Hear why Craig believes this message of "openness" for FAMILIES is so important:

"Open" is for families because "Open" is for everyone. Yes, accountability is helpful for individuals; it can help men become better husbands and fathers and women become better wives and mothers, and accountability can help young believers grow into a more mature faith. But beyond showing the individual benefits of accountability, "Open" shows that an honest, forgiving, caring, consistent, and respectful dialogue within a group dynamic--including families--serves only to make that group stronger and closer together. Your family relationships are forever and will outlast all others--why not make them open?
- Craig Gross, author of Open

How Open Are You? QUIZ - How willing are you to share your true personality with others? Do you trust other enough to let them see the real you? Take the quiz to find out how Open you really are!
