GIVE AWAY AND YES, I SEW ON FABRIC THAT IS NOT PINK

This is Dawn Heese's new book, and she is giving one away!!! Check out her blog. She is a fellow Kansas City Star author....and we have the same editor, so we are sort of related!
Now, for those of you who don't think I sew on anything but PINK, here is an example of beautiful fabric by Jo Morton. I love her stuff!!!
I have decided that I sew mostly with pink and pastels in the Spring and Summer. Then come Fall and Winter, I sew with darks and REDS.
We have beautiful Summer and Fall in Rexburg, but we have AWFUL winter and mostly cold Spring...so I have two sewing personalities. When the snow starts to melt, I want to sew with happy bright or pastel colors.
I have two blogs that are not quilting/sewing blogs that I love to visit....especially A beach cottage....I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a beach cottage. I know her life is not perfect, but it looks perfect from blog land to me!!! The other is Daisy Cottage....it is one of the most cheerful places in blog land...probably because she has such cheerful colors posted....I am going on a "color hunt." I am taking my camera and finding things that have great colors to put on my blog.
