Let’s Read

I finished up my book bag yesterday, now I’m anxious to go to the library to try it out!  I’m planning to put together a simple tutorial so everyone can make one too…but my computer time seems super limited these days.  If I ever sit down to get any work done, Silas rushes over and says “it’s time to get down”, the phrase he uses when he wants down from his high chair, and attempts to capture our new, cordless, mouse.  He’s also been telling me to “hang up phone” lately.

But, I did get all the pictures taken, so it should only be a matter of a few days.  But, I loved the finish, and I couldn’t wait to share.  Now I’m itching to do a little reading.

I’ve also discovered my library has quilt books…any recommendations?

    Cute bag – love the themed embroidery! I love getting quilt books at the library b/c I pickup anything and everything, 3 or 4 at a time. Since I’m only borrowing, I’m not nearly as choosy as if I was parting with $$ from my fabric budget.

    Jennie, the bag is beautiful – I know it will serve you well. I am sure Silas and Norah can’t wait to go to the library and get some “new” books! XOXO

    my library is FULL of wonderful quilt books…i search the card catalog often…and I find that i set the search to search most recent … otherwise, im stuck looking at lots and lots of old books!
    or try searching “modern quilting” that brings up a lot of good stuff too!
    your bag is just wonderful!

    This is a great bag and the fabric is perfect. My daughter takes my grandkids to the library so it would be nice to make one. Yours is special with the embroidery. Really nice. Thank you for the idea.

    It’s fantastic, Jennie! My daughter goes to the library every weekend with my mom. This gives me a great idea for a Christmas gift for her!

    In the next few days I”ll get it together to email you, about doing some blog design stuff. I’ve been thinking about it FOREVER, but keep putting it off :-)
