Craft Buds is a wonderful website that has a lot of information for the business side of crafting. Many of us have thought about making our favorite hobbies into a viable business, Craft Buds is there to help us with that. I love reading their blog posts as they provide so much useful information.
Craft Buds is having a linky party on their site for the month of September. They are celebrating craft books.
Throughout the month, they will have loads of information on getting your own craft book out there for the public to see. They are also encouraging crafters to link up to their projects that they have made from craft books. If you do link up one of your projects, you will be entered to win one of many prizes.
Dewberry Lane has donated a prize, The Practical Guide to Patchwork.
This book is written by Elizabeth Hartman. I have been following Elizabeth’s blog for some time, and I am in love with all her patterns and this book.
To be entered for a chance to win this book, all you have to do is link up to a project you have made from any craft book. Just head on over to Craft Buds (here).
I am going to try and make a quilt top from Elizabeth’s book this month. I am going to be out of town for a week, so I am not sure if I will be able to complete the project before the end of the month, but we will see. I have picked the project and the fabrics I am going to be working on.
And I started cutting the strips of fabric I need.
I don’t have the second, lighter solid fabric that is needed for the pattern yet, but my plan is to make the blocks to the black borders, and then pick up the other fabric when I can. I will update the blog as I finish more steps!!
