I subscribed to this post, read yours (Boogie), and burst out laughing! Sorry. But, I can relate. All that pretty material and the beautiful examples of quilts would make it so tempting. The main thing stopping me is (after trying it several times) I really don’t like to sew!
But, I love buying books that are going to give me all the information I need to succeed at whatever. I’ve got lots of reference books; and for most of them, I’ve looked through briefly, maybe found a couple of things that were interesting/useful, and now they’re sitting on shelves: photography, horse training/riding, art books galore!
