Snoop Through My Mail

Wow! It's been a great week for mail for me. I pre-ordered Camille Roskelley's new book "Simply Retro" from Chapters/Indigo and it came in on Friday. I am a huge fan of Camille's work so I am so happy to finally have a copy of her new book.

I woke up before the kids and staying in bed for an hour looking through this gorgeous book in peace and quiet. Ahhhh. There are many fun projects in here that I want to try but my favourite is called "Dwell" and it's a quilt of little houses. If you want to see some of what is inside Camille wrote a post about her new book on her blog here.
Also, one of the Giveaway Day prizes that I won was in the mail box too! This one is from Gail who blogs at Thanks Gail!

I thought the little bags would be great as Christmas gifts that have more gifts inside them. The ballerina is perfect for my daughter who is a little ballerina herself. I'm wondering about it though and maybe some of you can help me with this. The ballerina picture is to be traced onto a fat quarter and then "crayoned" and the pattern calls for Prang crayons which I have never heard of. Do you know if Crayola crayons would work just as well? Please leave me a comment if you have any advice about colouring on fabric with crayons.

Also, if I were to order another copy of "Simply Retro" and do a giveaway here on the blog later on this month would you be interested in that? Or do all of you already have a copy? Let me know what you think. Thanks for snooping through my mail. ;)
