My sister and some friends came visiting yesterday, so my Saturday was a very happy one. I always love seeing my older sister, as she cracks me up, and being around her always makes me so happy. Yesterday she had me in stitches, and I felt so much better. Here's an old picture of us goofing around....
Now, about this giveaway.
Do you want this book?
If yes, read on.
You might be wondering why I am giving this book away just a couple of days after I wrote about wanting to engage in the art of fine sewing. I have not taken leave of my senses...oh no...all I'm doing is executing my still evolving plan of attack on fine sewing. I have been deliberating for some time now if I should get the revised edition of this book, and I have finally made up my mind to go for it. This means I will now have 2 copies of the same book, which translates into... I have to get rid of one.
This giveaway is the beginning of a series of sewing book related giveaways that I plan on doing this year. I love books. There is just something special about leafing through pages and pages of beautifully assembled papers. For want of a better explanation of the Dibs-Books relationship, I'll say I'm a Book Addict. I don't like the term bookworm, because it brings a not very sexy image to my mind...and I like to think of myself as a sexy woman....yes I am....I insist I am.....well I am if I say I am....what? the bump? ........ahem....okay then, I am a sexy bumpified chica....got that?......now where was I? Oh yes, the giveaway.
As I was saying, I buy too many books, and sometimes I end up not using them, and they spend lonely nights on my bookshelve, the only exciting thing for them being having to fight for space on the bookshelf with Mr.Dibs's cooking books. Whats the point of having a book that is not used. I figured someone out there would probably give these books the proper attention they deserve. Don't get me wrong, I love these books, its just that I have not really taken the time to get some use out of them, and now I am trying to make space for more books, like Gertie's upcoming book.
You, my friends, have been so kind to me, with your lovely emails, and comments, and texts, so its only fair to pay you back in my own small way.
So, to stand a chance of having this book you need to full-fill certain criteria......
1) You need to be a follower of my blog.
2) Be a resident of planet earth. ( No aliens please...no not even you beauties of Pandora or spice addicts of Arrakis)
3) Be a member of the human race ( No hobbits, elves, and certainly NO ORCS).
4) Leave a comment about why you want this book.
This giveaway is open till midnight London time, on the 14th of February 2012.
Coolio. I'm off now. Mr.Dibs marinated some chicken last night with Nandos peri peri marinate, and judging from the sweet aroma wafting into the bedroom, I assume said chicken is being acquainted with the hotness of the oven.....aahhhhhhh exciting stuff.
