Well what can I say. I love quilt books. They inspire me. It's fun to look at the different quilt books by different authors. There are books that I want, and some that I just have to have.
So when a quilting book comes along, one that I have been wanting, but just have never gotten around to obtaining, you just jump at the opportunity. Right? RIGHT??
So I am at JoAnn's the other day. And of course I need to take a look at the quilting books. There just might be something new to look at. So I spy these little red tags on some of the displays. Red tags, like clearance SALE tags.
Of course all of the books that are labeled to be clearance are already gone. So I do a search. See this is where my thrifting skills come into play. I start down the rows. Nothing. Keep looking. Still nothing. But wait! On the very bottom row, behind another title................ whoa................. Miss Rosie is peeking out at me.
You know who Miss Rosie is, right?? I'm just asking because I've asked at a couple of quilt shops lately and they look at me like I am from another planet. Yes, Carrie's Miss Rosie. And it has a red tag!!
YES!!! I am a Schnibbleholic, and ever since I've been making the little Schnibbles quilts I've been eyeing this quilt book.
Look at this one. Six Degrees.......... sigh................ So pretty.
Well this is not the end of the clearance story. Because as I am searching through the racks, I find this one.
Can't pass this one up.
And oops, one more, hiding again behind another book.
I very rarely find good quilt books on clearance. I was very happy to find these little gems. So now taking in all the inspiration and planning, planning, planning :-)
Happy, happy quilting!
