When we were looking for the home we live in now one of the things that sold me on this house was it was within walking distance to the library.
I am a library geek.
I can still remember the trips to the library with my mom when that town’s library was literally a store front. The kids section was just one 12 foot wall with books stacked higher then any kiddo could reach. I like to say I read the bottom three shelves twice.
Paul and Emily got their library cards at age 4 and our weekly trips began.
It is not uncommon for us to be at the library 2-3-4 times a week picking up a book that has “come in”. I ask for alot of books. ALOT of books! All genres…but yes very heavy in the quilting and knitting dept.
A few weeks ago a book popped up on the email newsletter that the library sends out that caught my attention. I knew I must see it with my own two eyes.
I got the email yesterday. It was in.
I was laughing out loud before I even hit the door to leave.
Sometimes you just need a funny book to literally turn to when you need a giggle.
And of course I am gonna show the doxie pic!
I double dog dare ya to check this book out and not giggle.
And to segway into today’s giveaway, I see the return of creative relaxing hand work to my life. I love to spend hours English Paper Piecing and hand appliqueing with a good movie on the tv or a book on cd playing. I can listen to books on cd while doing hand work but I get lost if I try when machine piecing.
I have always wanted on of these little caddies for the arm of my side of the couch.
I vow that by Sept 30th I will have one and I hope one of you will have one too.
So the prize is the pattern and three fat quarters of fabric to get you started.
Post a comment below telling me your dog’s name or any dog you know and I will draw a winner of the Sit & Stitch Pincushion pattern and fabric on Sunday morn!
(pssst….you will definitely want to keep an eye on the blog….I do believe there is an extra book on my desk that needs to leave next).
Enjoy the day!
P.S. still need the street addy of Vickievanphd so I can send out your prize!
