What a great interview! I've seen this book on a few blogs but I wasn't into it. Your review makes me want to dive right in! I didn't know how complete it was and the thinking behind the five patterns. Fingers crossed, or if I don't win, I will tell the hubby all I want for Christmas is Colette! ;)
