Blog Tour

I met Kajsa Wikman four years ago through Flickr when her whimsical appliqués caught my eye. We immediately traded bags in my first ever swap. My house bag still goes with me everywhere I go. I consider Kajsa a great friend and although we have never met in person, I feel as if I know her from following her life through her blog, Syko Design. I was there when the first birds were created with her daughter and I was there when the button became the Syko logo!! Her designs have inspired me greatly throughout the years and now I am excited to announce that her first book Scandinavian Stitches is being released this month!

Follow the tour to learn a little more about Kajsa at each stop, as well as 10 chances to win a copy of the book provided by Stash Books and 10 chances to win this cute card set!
