I won! I won! and a new Wonky House Block

Recently I entered a contest on Heather's blog, Books and Quilts.  It was a publisher's give-a-way for two books from the Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo.  I remember coming across Kathy's blog over a year ago, but I did not even realize that she was an author. Since Heather posted these books, I have googled a bit and found out she is indeed the same crafty chica that I found months ago.

 I was totally surprised and thrilled to get an email a week ago that I had won these books.

Today I received the two books. Aren't they beautiful? I just love that glitter.

I am excited to find an author who centers her novels around the lives of women with a passion to create.


Very soon I will set my sewing machine aside and begin reading about these sassy craft divas.

I am expecting some light entertainment—along the same lines of the culinary mystery novels I love to read.

Thank you, again, Heather, for the opportunity to discover Kathy Cano-Murillo’s books!  I am really looking forward to getting hooked on craft genre fiction.

I just made a wonky house block.

hmmmm...I think it's too wonky for me!  That door is way too big and the shutter is too long.....I guess that's why it's wonky...

I was planning to keep the brown last border the same on all the blocks to provide an anchor. I think I will make four blocks to make sure I don't like it.  It's pretty difficult to really make a decision with just one block.
