TheNobleWife will be hosting a Book Blog Tour. You can see sample pages here. It's a wonderful book!
Two projects really caught my eye.......the Pear Make-Do Pincushion and the Heartfelt Home Floor Mat. I am thinking I will give the Pear Make-Do a try. I have been looking in my stash for just the right fabrics that I can use to make the pear. And also, because I have her pattern "A Peck of Pears". I love pears when they are in season and that is right about now! Oh, they are delicious! Yum! And yum, too, for the recipes in Jacquelynne's book. As much as I love pears, I really love chocolate and will definitely be making the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes featured in her book. I know just from reading Pat Sloan's blog that she also loves a cupcake or two, so go check out her blog right now and see if you can win a copy of "Fruitful Hands"!
But before you head over to Pat's blog .........
as I mentioned yesterday, I am in Iowa with my mom, but I packed plenty of projects to keep me busy. I brought along my GO! Baby and the box with the fabrics from Jacquelynne's "Sewing Room Social" line. I used a lot of the fabric last spring to cut charms for mug rugs for guests at the DayTreat I hosted. I thought I'd like to make some more as gifts and perhaps will want to help make one for Grandma.

But don't forget to go to Pat's blog to enter for a chance to win "Fruitful Hands"!!!
Good luck and have a great day!!!
