You'll Never Believe what I Found!!!!


OK, well I thought today was going better than yesterday - but on my way home I had some major problems with the credit card - long story and I'm still mad about it - tomorrow I'll be able to joke about it and fill you in.

Anyway, I wasn't able to stop at the quilt store last night to drown my sorrows because I had to work too late (since I got in so late). So I stopped tonight at a sewing store I only go to, to get good thread. So I decided to browse through their books. They have TONS of quilt books - funny because they don't really teach quilting, they do more "sewing".

Anyway - all of a sudden I thought, geez - they have some really old books here, I wonder if they have left over the ever popular, completely talked about on the maveriks, wonder book - Liberated Quilting. I really didn't expect to find it, but figured it wouldn't hurt to look. Well lo and behold - guess what they had 3 copies of! So I FINALLY got my hands on one for less than $50! It only cost me the regular price of $24! After I bought it I told them they were going for over $50 on Amazon and Ebay!

So I"m off to go read through it - but I was just too excited to wait to tell you about it tomorrow!

I am so jealous. I got mine at the library and made copies at kinkos so I would have time to peruse it. Great find.

Hurrah!!! Something good in an otherwise miserable day. Can't believe you told the store how much they could sell them for - shoulda bought all of the books yourself. I hope you love the book and even if you don't, you know you can sell it easily :)
