I love free stuff!

Especially free stuff that I was considering actually spending money on, in the first place. :) At the end of October, one of my favorite sewing bloggers, Lindsey T, was hosting a giveaway for Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. I've been hemming and hawing over this book since I started sewing, so it was a no-brainer to enter. She has a huge following and I knew that lots of people would enter, so I pretty much didn't think about it after throwing my name in the hat.

So I was SHOCKED when I was reading her blog the next month and saw that I won! I WON!! I totally did a happy dance at work and my CWs just shook their heads in amusement. A couple of weeks later, this little gal showed up on my door:

I've quickly flipped through it and I have my eye on the wrap skirt and overnight bag. Thank you so much Lindsey and I can't wait to make some fun projects after the new year! :)

Yay! It's awesome to win something when you're in that position of "I want it...but do I really want to buy it?"

So cute! Is that an actual chain hanging from the front cover or a photo of one? Regardless, it's SUPER CUTE!
