Sparkly giveaway

Well hello there! How's your week been? Do you need a bit of sparkle in your life? Today I played around with some pretty fabrics and made a few brooches from the book Homemade. They're lovely little gifts; one became a birthday present today and the other two are thank yous to generous friends. And I think I'll make a couple more to give away here on Monday evening. Just leave a comment and tell me what your favourite craft book is at the moment. Good luck and have a nice weekend! And don't forget about Kraftbomb's 2nd birthday on Sunday: 11-2 at the Grey Lynn Community Centre on Richmond Rd.
