Last week's giveaway for Kerrie Slade's Playful Perfection book drew out readers who saw the possibilities of beading with different types of beads. Sneaky Burrito said, "I have been hoarding shaped beads and a book like this seems like just the excuse to start using them." PMensch added, "Learning how to use the large variety of beads would be extremely helpful."  Not just helpful, but the shaped beads add texture and different looks to bead woven designs.

One reader gave an unusual reason for wanting this book. Henny said, "I would love to have this amazing book so I could practice my left hand, this is the perfect therapy to learn make good use of the strength that is left in my left hand, and making this gorgeous and amazing pieces."  The Playful Perfection book is indeed a good one for practicing bead work no matter what your goals are!

So who won?  I numbered all the eligible entries and got the random number generator of to do the picking. The winner is Bonnie Brewer!  Congratulations!
