Sewn blog launch party

I read about the launch of the Sewn blog on Library Gal Quilts and decided to play along. I have never participated in one of these giveaways, but thought it would be fun and a good way to liven up my blog, which I have been shamefully neglecting as of late. I will be giving away a copy of this book, which is full of cute apron patterns. To enter, just leave a comment and on June 8th I will draw a winner.
