I don't win a lot of things but I still feel ridiculously lucky. However, I did recently win something. Thanks to Ambitatterous, I went to the blog, literatehousewife and commented. Blow me down, I won!
Here's the lovely basket:
The object of the basket is the book, Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony.
I've read the book - I really loved the passion that one of characters expressed for making lace. The biography for Iris Anthony says she is a tatter and I think the writing rings true.
That said, there were a number of parts of this book which I did not like. Shall I tell you? Or let you discover on your own?
I'm willing to share this book. I will mail it (probably media rate) to anyone if you will promise to pass it along as well when you finish. So comment if you're interested, and I'll pick someone on November 19th. (Too bad about the basket though, the candle is burned, the dog ate the bone, I took the matches to school and the banana bread is slated for the weekend.) : )
And don't forget to vote for tatting at the Tatting Corner.
