Unexpected Bargains!

The other day on the way home from work DH and I stopped at Borders for a frozen coffee drink thingy. On the way out I noticed a quilting book on the sale shelves right by the door. I went back in and checked out all the sale racks and eventually walked out with 3 new quilting books for my library.

The one in the middle is the one I am most excited about - it has pictures and write-ups of both antique and contemporary quilts - the Salina Rupp quilt is in there as is one by Jinny Beyer. I also ordered a purse book from Amazon that a friend had last week at the firehouse.



I was a little disappointed when I received this - I hadn't noticed when looking at my friend's book that the patterns all have to be enlarged 200% - I hate that but too late now.

Not much other quilty stuff going on here lately - work has been demanding this week - as a matter of fact I am spending most of the weekend on work stuff. This all means I am falling behind on Civil War Diary and Dear Jane blocks but I am confident I can catch up next week and/or the week after. I really am loving those blocks!

Have a pieceful day!

I have that one in the middle. My dad gave it to me for Christmas about 12 years ago! Enjoy.

Bargain books are the best.

What fun! Bargins are always fun, especially if quilt books are involved!
