All you have to do is look at the last entry and you can guess why. Two thrift store craft books ‘fell’ into my bag for $2 each. Let’s face it, I’m a crafter so I NEED craft books. Mr IT Guy is an IT Guy so he needs computer parts. It’s something I have to accept – within reason. And after a wonderful crafter sent me half a million PDF’s so I can make three patterns from this book and this book (thanks Oiyi and thanks to Rebekah for offering too) I found the Flickr pool for this book and was so envious I decided that enough is enough. So now the book will be mine within 2 weeks (Internet shopping may be convenient but they don’t rush to ship it out to you do they?). To try make myself feel better I have decided to not buy The New Crewel. I don’t think I would use it enough right now…but my birthday is in April and it’s not expensive so Dave might get the hint.
Oh and don’t worry, I have been sewing feverishly and there will soon be actual photos of crafts in my craft blog soon. I’m working on a shop update finally.
