It's my turn on the Spoonful of Sugar Blog Tour.

Hi and welcome to my blog.
I was so excited when Lisa contacted me and asked me to take part in her Blog tour for her new book
"A Spoonful of Sugar"  It was really hard to pick one project from the 20 Zakka Style projects within the book but I did and I made the "Sewing Portfolio"

It is such a great size at 12.5" x 18.5" (excluding the handles)

Lisa'a Blog is always a fun place to visit. Full of great tutorials and always inspiring.

Lisa is also organising a Sew Along from June 1st to August 9th.

 There will be five rounds, each lasting for two weeks which will give you plenty of time to complete a project or two from the book.  
Our good friend, Amy Sinibaldi from Nana Company is the Guest Judge, with fantastic prizes for the winner of each round, plus a Grand Prize Winner, generously sponsored by Alisha from Ministry of Fabric. We really hope you join in the fun! #ASPOONFULOFSUGARSAL
