I'll take a look in the morning . It's really late here and I have been crawling into bed between midnight and 2 every night. Yesterday I waited until evening to wash a load of sheets for my bed. They weren't dry until 1AM. Late nights are fine if your aren't doing much the next day but then I cat nap all morning and that sucks. Last night I had a "moment" I was working on my Dear Jane block and was doing an applique on it and then I 'woke' up and didn't remember cutting the thread or placing the needle back in the pin cushion...several years ago I had a sweet kitty named Daisy. I was sewing one day and the phone rang and I got up to answer it and didn't see her anywhere I was gone maybe 2 minutes and when I got back the needle was GONE. I panicked and took her to the cay vet in town.  and they x-rayed kitty and she had swallowed the needle. It took three days for that damn needle to make it's way out of her. she was over 12 years old and had some medical problems and they didn't want to risk surgery. The x-rays were pricey. I went over to encourage her to eat & I brought food ,cream and things like that. She had a little kitty IV in her leg... It was a bad few days for me thinking I had killed my cat. Finally the needle was out and kitty survived. The bill was steep but she was purring and alive.  I am paranoid now about needles and the pets.

I have done the same thing! But I try and see if there's more than one thing in a book usually. It's interesting how our tastes change and or evolve over the years. I have a lot of THOSE moments when I'll sit down and browse through a few old quilting book and see an old design that is suddenly what I wanted. Have you bought the same book more than once? Guilty.

This is my favorite of all your recent showings. Really fun placement of a NYB block to make this pattern. Very Cool!

This pattern was in one of there more rescent books. I bought the book just for this pattern, but I do that a lot, by a book for just one pattern, then years later I discover I like something else in the book.I like it when I see someone else make a quilt and they go that the pattern is unavailable.Yes it probably is until I hit my own library.My collection is in the 100's. I even got copies of some books, so if you're ever looking for a book out of print, give me a jingle I just may have it.
