Let's Book It - 2015
Yes, there will be Let's Book It this year. So go browse those book shelves (you can dust them while you're there), pull a few books, magazines, patterns........... Rediscover those hidden treasures.
We all have those books that probably the cover is what caught our eye. Or maybe it was a new techniques you wanted to try.
Or maybe it was something you saw on the internet, copied and stored away.
I'll be honest with you all - yup - all projects taken off the net and never used. I went thru these 6 notebooks and now I am comfidently down to just 2. I felt like I had to save everything when I started out - silly. 80% of the paper will be re-cycle print (paper piecing gold). Some projects I set aside to see if students might like.
Or those magazines that are just piling up. I have to admit - these are the only magazines I have and they were give to me (borrowed) as I plan on using them somewhere during the year for Book It.
Those patterns that called...................
and more patterns that called. And yes, lets make it any fiber play. Chrochet, knitting, bag making, clothing, cross stitch, embroidery - we quilters do more than just quilt. And if you select a project that will take some time to complete, please feel free to use it over the months - just show us your progress. Yes, that is some of my quilt books piled there. As part of my 'slow December', I revisited my books and patterns and there was some purging done.
This year's Charm Pin will be this really cute antique sewing machine - love it! And a whole new (and some are really new to the distributor) set of charms. An end of the month linky is held for show off (and you don't have to have a finish, so relax) and to pick a winner of the pin/charm.
So pull those treasures, pick a project, and join us.
