I got an email from Mary Etherington asking if I would like to be in her “Back to Charm School Blog Hop ”…and review her new book!

ME?  She wanted ME to review her new book??  We are talking about THE Mary Etherington of ‘Country Threads’ fame…asking ME!!!  Wow!  As you can tell, I was VERY honoured and thrilled to receive (an autographed) copy of “Back to Charm School”!  I only hope I can do this book justice!  Mums the word on the book…for now…you will HAVE to come back on February 20th when I spill the beans and tell you what I REALLY think about this book…but I will say this…by Monday night, after perusing “Back to Charm School”.. I had the fabric cut out for the cutest dang runner that will ever lay eyes on…enough said!!

Thanks Mary for including me in your “Back to Charm School Blog Hop”…which starts on February 20th to the 25th!!  Oh…and I saved the best for last…Mary sent an extra (autographed) copy for YOU!!  Yes, there is going to be a GIVE AWAY!! {you can insert your own happy dance HERE!}

  2. I've never won anything from your blog yet, but I feel lucky. Can't wait to see what you are creating! Thank you!

  3. Looking forward to your review of this book. I have all these single charm packs laying around and not sure what to do with them.

  4. Congrats on being chosen to review her book. The cover quilt is gorgeous! I would love to make that quilt. Thanks for the opportunity!

  5. Wowzers! I love Mary's books. Can't wait to get your review on it. You're one lucky dog, you!

  6. I like the fact that it looks scrappy, will be fun to see what you do with this!

  7. Would LOVE to have this book, it seems I have to buy every charm pack that my LQS carries, and right now they are just sitting in a basket being pretty;).

  8. Love scrappy quilts. I am eager to hear what you think of the book and to see what you make from it. I would also like to enter your giveaway. Who knows I might win something for a change.

  9. I want to do the happy dance too!!!!! Please include me in your drawing.
