V and Co: Sew Red Book Giveaway


i was honored to be included in the Sew Red book. and while i don't have any personal stories of heart disease i do know the importance of taking care of yourself.

Get Heart Healthy

Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States? Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined (including breast cancer!).
i want to be around for my kids and grandkids and i make sure that i get exercise and moderate my chocolate and salt intake. :) the chocolate is a little harder but i try.

This beautiful follow-up to Knit Red features stunning designs from more than 25 top sewing and quilting celebrities, along with three 28 x 40 black-and-white pattern sheets. But this is more than a book of breathtaking projects: it's part of Stitch Red, a campaign started by Jimmy Beans Wool founder Laura Zander to educate women about heart disease and help them take charge of their heart health. Each showcased designer—including Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Ty Pennington, and Kaffe Fassett—shares his or her experience with heart disease and offers tips for staying healthy.

i made a baby quilt for the book, and i am very honored to have been asked to do this book :) and to be included with an amazing group of people.



if you would like a chance to win a book of your own please leave me a comment with an email attached to the bottom of the comment. 
**in your comment i would like for you to tell me one thing you would change to make your life just that much healthier.

and of course you can always purchase the book to show your support (links to amazon where you can purchase.)

I would try to eat more fruits and vegetables in the winter. It seems so much easier when more is available in summer.

I know exercise would be the healthiest thing I could do right now! But that requires getting off the couch...

I would add exercise, especially daily walking to my life because I need it to keep heart healthy as I am getting older now. The Red Book would be an honor to win. Thank you.

I should cut down on red meat. Have a lot of heart disease in my family, lost my dad very young, his mom and brothers all from the same heart problem. I have some health issues but can walk and do water exercises. Cannot wait for warmer weather!!! Thank you for the give away. tjunger93@gmail.com

The last few months I have felt the effects of stress like never before. I want to incorporate some daily meditation / yogic breathing in my routine to manage my stress levels.
