Cinderberry Stitches ... Seriously the CUTEST book!

I was both THRILLED and honored to be asked to be a part of the Cotton Floss book tour!



 I received Natalie's ADORABLE book and immediately started planning projects ...

First up: The Market Folk carry bag 


Is that not the cutest thing???? Those little embroidered tags? EEEK! Her designs are so whimsical ... I just love it!

Next, how about The Big Bag? 
(Can you see I'm on a bag kick?)


My Mom is heading to Europe and I think she'd be thrilled to carry this cutie around ... I don't know if I could part with it though! 

Now, I have to share a secret project ... SHHHHH! 

My dear Sister-in-Law is having a baby in September. Guess who's holding the shower? And since she has a love of owls, what do you think of these cuties for party favors?





PLUS how fun would these be on the tables?


With Natalie's clearly written directions PLUS templates for all of the embroidery projects, I'm confident that they'll be PERFECT! 

I wanted to share some additional  projects from the book ..







As you can see, she is one talented gal with a wonderful eye for design ... You can't miss this book!
Please visit Natalie at http://www.cinderberrystitches.typepad.com/ and tell her that Paige sent you :). You'll be glad you did!

Now ... Here's the VERY best part about this review.

Simply leave a comment to this post by Saturday, June 25th at Midnight and you're entered!

Since I was such a silly girl and thought TODAY was my day to post (it was REALLY yesterday!!!!)

PLUS



Would that help? Again, just comment to this post and you're entered!
