I’m so honored to be caboose’n the last day of Bari’s Inspired to Sew Book Blog Tour! I’m just honored to be a part of it, period! Bari is giving a copy of her beautiful book to one lucky person on my blog - and all you have to do is leave me a comment. If you’d like to mention what INSPIRES you TO SEW in your comment… please do!
I’m inspired to sew when I see something, and think how much more I’d love it if I made it myself. I also feel empowered if I make something myself. I think people who cook feel the same way - there’s a very nurturing quality about making stuff, especially if it’s for someone else. Reason #126 why I love Bari’s new book… it’s not just drop dead gorgeous… but all the projects in her book are something I want to make - to make for others. Like Bari’s tea-cozy… it’s something I might be able to buy ready-made - but not even close to as pretty as Bari’s projects. Plus after I make them they’re infused with love - that’s something that can’t be bought.
I love this tea set… cozy, pad and teabag. It just screams to me to make it - and then have friends over for tea. Not just sewing projects… but little projects that make doing something all the more fun, and with friends. The little tea projects are sew-cial treats!
There’s lots, lots, lots more inside the beautiful pages of Inspired to Sew - and a copy could be yours! Leave me a comment by midnight PST Thursday, February 10, 2011 and one lucky name will be drawn. If you haven’t already, be sure to travel back in time to stop by and visit the other blogs on the tour. WOW… look at this list-o-greatness I’m with!
