When I heard that my friend Kelly aka Modern June was getting ready to release a new book, I begged her to let my readers in on the fun.  Guess what — she said YES!  I just received my review copy of this gorgeous new baby:

Wow, what a delight to behold!  I absolutely love her style and all the bright, fresh projects!  Oh my gosh, SO many projects that I’d love to complete for my own house.  You might recall that we moved last summer – well, I’m still settling in.  Look these darling craft ideas!  And she gives step-by-step directions to complete each one AND MORE — 27 vintage-inspired projects in total!!

    The first thing I need to sew is a denim patched backing for a knitted blanket I just completed, and then I am hoping to finish the summer bunting I had planned last year.

I’m inspired to get some projects started by the beautiful, bright colors in this book!
