Book List

I'm feeling a tad frustrated at the moment as last week I gave into a momentary weakness and ordered several books from Amazon. What can I say, I had an unspent gift voucher - if such is an applicable term for an online bookstore - and I've been eyeing up several craft books of late.

A week on and the projected delivery date is set for the 21st of the month, so I'm still waiting and will be for at least another week. This is not good. Once I have decided to purchase a book, I like to get my grubby little mits on it as soon as possible. Part of me is itching to cancel the order and buy the books via Amazon's 'New and Used' marketplace, but since the only reason I bought direct from Amazon was those gift tokens it kind of defeats the purpose.

The titles I ordered were all knitting or crochet pattern books, i.e.
I'm particulary keen to get my hands on the lace book as it sounds very good...


I do now however have one of these, having ordered it from Cotton Patch who have always been very helpful in the past. I anticipate a weekend filled with cutting things out!

So you have one of those.

I afraid I have looked at your book list and can't see me borrowing any, I may have borrow some of costume books at some point, if they are allowed out on loan, but best finish the cat books you loaned me before I ask though.

Oooh! I want to have a look at the crochet blocks one, bring it to the club when it finally shows up!! :)

Shout when they come I may have to pop round and have a look :)

Which reminds me do you still get threads? If so can i pop round some time and have a look at some back issues?

Julie said...

Esther, yes to the still getting Threads and you're welcome to pop around to look and have a cuppa. Just give me a ring first to make sure I'm in - you know how hectic things can get!

Richard, my costume books don't get loaned out I'm afraid as I refer to them on a regular basis so don't want to be without them. I can however bring them along on an accompanied visit. :)

Steelbreeze, once they finally show up I'll probably bring them along to the club - so no problems with you taking a peek. My hope is that they'll inspire me and I may make something other than a scarf!
