Natalie, my fav book as a child was Mary & Mark about a sister looking after her brother, I always wanted a baby sister or brother. Now I love reading True Life stories, I'm reading Allison De Bois' new book at the moment.


Ahh yes the age when we realise our babies are growing up into those scarey teenage years.I have one down and one to go. The current drama is coming from my fifteen year old day at a time...count to will be over soon.If only a coat of paint and a new doona could fix it.In respect to books I always enjoy a good mystery.The new pattern looks very cute.


Cute pattern Natalie! Books? I read anywhere between 60-80 books per year, fiction, non-fiction, biographies you name it. The only genre I do not like is Sci Fi. I love all the Jennifer Chiaverini books about the quilters , Debbie Macomber's books about knitters, and my recent favourite "Dewey" a true story about a kitten that was found in a library shute and lived around 18 years in the library! My other favs are "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks and "The Mists of Avalon" ( can't remember the author). I love reading about London during the 1800s too.

The sneak peeks are as intriguing as ever.
i tend to like mystery books, but also sci fi & fantasy. The last books I couldn't put down were the twilight books (and I usually hate vampire books) :)


Hi Natalie,

What's my favourite book - well put it this way - "I should read more!".

Another cute design Natalie. Again it was fun meeting you....

Hi Natalie,
I'm not sure which book is my favorite but I've read all Nora Roberts books and I love them.
I'd love to win the owl bag pattern as I collect owls. My mum started to collect them years ago and when she past away 15 years ago I inherited them and I have kept on collecting.

Hi Natalie, I love Jennifer Chiaverini novels, anything on the Amish, Clive Cussler, John Grisham, Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell to name a few.

Sandy Shirley

Hi Natalie - would love to win your giveaway! My favorite books are about British royalty. ANYTHING about Henry VIII and those around him!


Hi Natalie, my favourite books are by John Lescroart, they're legal drama/thrillers set in San Francisco, a bit like early John Grisham but I think much better.He can't write them quick enough for me! My most recent read was The Memory Keeper's Daughter written by Kim Edwards As for childhood books, I devoured everything but my all time favourite was Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome.

Hello Natalie, I am reading an historical novel at the moment called Daughter of Silk, all about intrigue in the French Court when Mary Queen of Scots was a young girl. I am not very far into it yet, the first in a trilogy. Your book bag is gorgeous, and I wouldn't read or see a horror book or movie, I am a wimp!!!


Natalie, that pattern is too cute. I would have the best bag at school. Please include me in the drawing.


If Tomorrow Comes by Sidney Sheldon is my fav. I haven't read it in a while so maybe I will give it another go to see if it's still my favourite. Great book bag. I am off to the library now to pick up my holds.


What a cute, cute pattern. It's been a long time since I sat down and read a book, other than to my grandchildren. I would love to win one of your patterns.


Natalie, your sneak peeks are adorable! And of course I love the book bag pattern! I LOVE reading and I read alot of different books. Crime novels have always been a favorite, but I also love a little fantasy now and then...Just finished a trilogy called The Mortal Instruments and it was awesome!

great pattern Natalie,
I am probably not the best person to be handing out book reviews, I will read pretty much anything (Except Mills n Boon stuff!!!!)I always feel that it is really good to read a great selection to get a balance. I am currently reading a Wally Lamb novel called "The Hour I First Believed", it is a ficton novel about the Columbine High School shooting. It is a great read so far, and certainly putting a different perspective on the impact of something like this n a community...however I did really enjoy the 'Heidi" series, and "Little Woman" when young.


Natalie my youngest is 16 now and even after going through it all twice before with my other two ... teen years are still scary LOLOL. SO many changes ;o) also a LOT of fun :o).
My favourite books ever are 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee and 'The Thornbirds' by Colleen McCullough ;o). I also LOVE to read the Jennifer Chiaverini 'Elm Creek Quilters' books :o).

I remember reading Flowers In The Attic, Petals In The Wind, Seeds of Yesterday etc etc by Virginia Andrews. I don't have time to read now as I stitch, quilt, knit, crochet. I wish I did read. Lots of my friends can't go to sleep without reading first. I want to read Ekhart Tolle's book A New Earth when I can get some quiet time. Love the owl bag. I love owls too. xx Sue


Hi Natalie, My all time favourite book is Mem Fox's 'Where is the Green Sheep' I so love that book and enjoy reading to groups of kids every time. I love your library bag well done on another terrific design! Cheers

Hi Natalie,
My favourite book is called April Fool's Day by Bryce Courtney. I remember reading the last few pages on the bus on my way to work, I sobbed the whole way and when I got off at my stop I stood there and read the last page with tears streaming down my face. It was a true story about Bryce's son, very heart wrenching and so well written. I should read it again!

Sylvia F

Hi Natalie
My favourite book are by Jane Austen and of course the Elm Creek Novels and I also have to mention that I like to read/look thought the hundreds quilting magazines that I own.

Books books books - I love them all - crime, romance, true stories - I just can't get enough time to read. Luckily my two littlies are the same - it's genetic I guess! I would love to win this pattern so I can make them both a library bag - they would love it. Keep up the fantastic work - look forward to seeing your next creation. Sally
