Nine fifty.  Nine hundred and fifty posts.  Moving toward 1,000, and toward ten years of blogging.  I was a few months past fifty when I do the math! ;-)

So, today's special -- it calls for another wee give-away!  Since I hit Post 900, I've been having fun with these...and there'll be yet another at 975 -- and a much larger sharing out of goodies for 1,000, so you have to keep reading! LOL!

I love fabric, and I love books, so once upon a time I thought I might like to make...fabric books.  In the end, I found it wasn't my I have this wonderful book to give to just the right owner:

Published in 2005 by C&T Publishing, it's been sitting in my library, pristine and untouched
...and it's calling out for a new home!

There are six chapters on projects -- from fabric tag books to scrapbook/journals and altered books, and all sorts in between.  There's even a page entitled, "Don't Sew? And Don't Want To?" -- leading into all the techniques one needs to create books, or in books or with books and fabric -- with and without sewing.

Here's the deal: anyone who comments on this post-- and though comments remain 'moderated' I've removed the word ID requirement to make it easier to do -- between now (8 a.m. Mountain Standard Time, Saturday, December 1, 2012) and 8:00 a.m. MST on Saturday, December 8, 2012 will have his/her name put in a hat for a random draw.  Ready? Set?  GO!

Morning, Margaret. Now I do like Altered Books. And fabric was my first medium of choice. Now the paper and glue are trying to elbow it out. lol I don't have that particular book. Congrats on all the posts.

I only made a few fabric books the last couple of years, but it was fun to do. I do not have this book, but it looks very interesting.

OMG, fabric? books? I love them both. I have sewn all my life and after going back to school once my children were older, I became a librarian. I'd love to see what projects there are in this book.

I am making a "quiet book" and certainly would enjoy this book to make more books. I love your blog and hope to be a fiber artist one day.
