Win the *new* Pip Lincolne Book!!...

 Do you know Pip Lincolne? - "Meet Me at Mikes"? Australian Crafty Babe? you must do....
She is awesome.
And i was sent this Book to Review by Hardie Grant AND a copy to giveaway!!!
"Make Hey - while the sun shines"
I know!
 for FREE, to a Blog Reader.
So i nervously opened the book thinking *i hope i bloody like it or i won't want to give a copy to someone*
 Oh, my friends...
This book is pure JOY
I kid you not, it has every element i adore in my crafty books, and every element in beautiful abundance.
I want my Craft Books to be 2 things:
1. Inspirational with beautiful photography
2. Feel and Look so good, i want to keep picking it up.
funnily enough, the projects inside are of lesser importance to me.
 To start with, it wins prizes for having a Spiral Bind - seriously, more books should do this. The page stays open!! and is really pleasing to use because of that.
And the paper is like matt recycled style paper, so you want to stroke and feel the pages.
These things may seem minor, but how many of you also judge practical books by their actual 'practicality'
(it matters!)
 The projects are cute and varied with sewing and crochet and knitting and EVERYTHING :)
It gives you lots of basic tips and steps and it is written with charm and comedy, as if Pip is sat with you or you are part of secret craft club. Again, more books should do this.
 The photography.... well.
I want, want
 to be that lady below, in yellow shoes and floral dress, toting some sewing in a mad vintage case.
This book is own-able for it's awesome vintage photography and style shots alone. Let alone all the cool stuff you can make which is mostly vintage-ish but with a modern edge.
J'Adore x totally.
 When i opened it, i ignored the inside cover envelope and began with the pages themselves...
but when i came to close the book i took a quick peek at the inside pocket at the last.
I AM GLAD I DID !!
I shall not even tell you what is in there.
It is a surprise for you!
but...
 More books should do this.... seriously.
It is a charming and inspirational surprise and it makes me want to produce a whole book in this way alone.
You like my blog maybe? You probably like stuff i like then.
You'll definately love this book then.
And that is that.
 Lucky me has a copy.
But i have a second copy to give away to one happy reader!

It is such a special prize, all Christmassy and Lovely, worth nearly £20.00 RRP my chums,
please tell your friends or link it on your blog / tweet it, whatever!
i'd appreciate it...
And once you have passed this link on to a friend / tweeted / blogged whatever,
pop your name in my comments and why not tell me why you want it (or something like that)?

Love to you all,
Happy Christmas preparations my Lovlies
