Zakka Style Giveaway Winners

Wow.  It's been a month since my last post.  Sorry for being MIA.  I have most definitely been busy and have a LOT to blog about -- Quilt Market in Kansas City, our first-ever Fat Quarterly Community Retreat in London, my membership in the fun new Art Gallery Fat Quarter Crew, swap items (both sent & received), and other events -- but I've unexpectedly had to deal with a bit of real life lately, and blogging has fallen down in the list of priorities.  I hope to be around a bit more in the coming weeks and months, but it will likely be less than in the past for a while.  I appreciate your understanding.

Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use and Enjoy - Front Cover Projects - ISBN: 978-1-60705-416-0

For today, I wanted to announce the winner of the Zakka Style book giveaway.  Congratulations to Helen (who blogs at Archie the Wonder Dog) who said:

Archie the wonder dogMay 14, 2012 6:12 PMI don't think I've made anything that could be considered Zakka but I did find some lovely ribbon/trim in a shop last week - I bought some just in case I had a zakka moment!!

In addition to the book, I have 5 sampler packs of Aurifil thread to send to some lucky readers.  Congratulations to:

elnoracMay 14, 2012 9:16 PMGeez, a guy who sews... I love it! Your mug rug looks great. Have done some of the Sew Along and may tackle this project, too. Thanks to you, to LRStitched, and to the sponsors. 
Chez RooMay 15, 2012 12:18 AMI have made a few zakka style pouches with linen and cute fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway, I love the projects that I've seen. 
LoBo333May 14, 2012 11:37 AMI've never sewn anything that could be considered zakka, but you-all are making me want to. Thanks for the opportunity to win and thanks for the great inspiration. 
AliMay 17, 2012 7:39 PMThat's such a cute little cloud! I haven't made anything I'd consider Zakka, is it wrong I'm waiting for everybody to finish the sew a long so I can just browse ideas from more brilliant minds than mine before I try my hand at it? ;0 
FrancineMay 14, 2012 11:38 AMLove the mug rug - and finally have to order my copy of the book - the projects look so fun! I had to look up the def. of "zakka" lol but now that I know, I would say that all my projects attempt to be zakka. I love pillows, throws and things that are readily seen by guests.

If you are a winner, please email me with your mailing information and I'll be sure your prize is sent to you ASAP.


  1. Life gets nuts - it's understandable.

  2. Squeal! Thank you! I hope life settles down soon and that everyone's ok...

  3. Love your fat quarterly project-Shape Workshop for Quilters!
    Clear instructions and diagrams. Have made three of the

    your perseverance!
