Hopping along Zakka Style

You will be seeing this all over blog land as it is a super long blog hop sew-a-long working through every project in this book!  Each blogger on the hop will add their tips and ideas for a project.   
All the projects in this book were chosen by Rashida Coleman-Hale, author  my top favourite zakka craft book, I Love Patchwork.  Zakka Style is a bloggers' who's who of great zakka crafters and their projects provide plenty of scope for individualising and adding your own spin.
The sew along kicks off Monday April 2nd and runs until Monday September 10th with a new project  introduced each Monday.
Each blogger will sew a different project from the book and share their finished project and inspiration with you.

My turn is early on so I am already planning a scrappy themed pencil case whilst getting over the shock of being in this lovely group of bloggers!
There is a list of book/ebook suppliers, UK and International at the Zakka Style Sew Along posting if you want to buy the book to sew-a-long with and you here are the sponsors and there are prizes to be won along the way!
Love to all you mothers out there x
