“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
And because I want you to stay forever young, today I’m giving away a copy of Margaret Bloom‘s book: Making Peg Dolls. The more peg dolls you make the younger you become. I was 41 before I got this book, now I am 7 years younger (1 year per peg doll I made). This fun book (192 pages) has over 60 different doll designs with step by step tutorials and patterns for you to play with. The peg dolls in the pictures above are not in the book, but they were inspired by it. Margaret’s animation also inspired me to create the GIF animation above.
For a chance to win this book, simply leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner on Monday, February 25, 2013.
BONUS: With the book I will include one of the peg dolls that I made. Just let me know your choice from the picture where I numbered the 7 characters.

Here she listed some good places for buying peg doll blanks.
