Has been released!

Check it out..

My friend Matt – who owns the Quilted Bear, brought his copy along to the VMQG Meeting last week and fellow block designer Krista and I were super giddy!

Here’s mine..

The back cover:


So far my hard copy hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, but I have had a chance to peruse the ebook version and oooh boy there are some nice blocks hiding in that book!

Wanna win a copy of the ebook? *grin*

The kind people at Stash have graciously offered my lovely readers one free ebook – Thanks Stash!

Just leave me a comment and I’ll choose a winner on Thursday, Oct 27th!

Until then, here are some shots of my block before I sent it out:

Yeah, it’s about time I released more boy-centric designs eh? *wink wink*

***Comments Are Now Closed!***

Thanks so much for your awesome comments and well wishes! *HUGS* to each and every one of you!

I’m off to pick a winner…good luck everyone!

    Congrats Sonja! That’s so great. And I love that you called your robot Russell. It’s hilarious. (No offence to any Russell’s out there of course) I would love to win this prize but if I win, I’ll have to print it out and get you and Krista to autograph it of course!

    I received my copy last week! This is one fun and fabulous book! I think it is going to cause UFO’s though. . . cause I want to drop everything I’m working on now and start something new! Your robot is darling, and wonderful you are contemplating more boy designs. Congrats on seeing your name in print!
