Books! Books! Books!

I LOVE books! Really. I do.

I have been known to buy craft, sewing and quilting books a few at a time. (Shhhh… don’t tell CraftyDaddy!)

When they arrive (usually from Fishpond) I leave them on the kitchen table where I can flip through them again and again when I sit down with a cup of tea mostly admiring the pictures and debating to myself which project to try first.

Reality, however, is that they usually then go onto the book shelf with the others. The practical side of me tells myself that I should at least finish one half-done project before I start a new one. So months later I think of that new book again and still haven’t started something from it. {sigh}

This whole cycle is not helped by popping over to Fishpond every now and again just to drool at the new releases. Here’s the collection I found tonight…

    I buy mine, a few at a time, from the Book Depository; and like you, there are many that I have not used as more than coffee table books!
