How excited are you for super awesome Kajsa Wikman's first book Scandinavian Stitches published by the super awesome Stash Books?! I'm wild with delight about it! I've loved her work for the past several years and I was so thrilled when I hear that she had a book coming out! And oh, my she doesn't disappoint! I was just ooh-ing and aah-ing at every page. ^_^ *does a Scandinavian running man* (There's no such thing, but I just made it up. :P)

• 21 whimsical projects include quilts, softies, pillows, and ornaments

“The first flowers of spring, the smell of the sea, the warm colors of the maple leaves...” inspire Kajsa to stitch, sew, and share. Each season is a new beginning and a great reason to take on a new project. Her bright, colorful designs are sure to make you smile.
Kajsa has such an incredibly distinct and unique style that would be hard to duplicate. But we readers are now taken into her world as she shares with us just how to make her wonderful creations with a new book, Scandinavian Stitches!
You'll learn a plethora of techniques in this book, such as applique, embroidery and free motion stitching which Kajsa has mastered to perfection. The projects range from quilts to coasters to dolls, there's even a linen scarf!
What I love most about her work is the details. Oh, the details! It's what really makes a project stand out and you'll learn everything you need to know to make your projects pop with fun and flair!
