I've added a bookstore to my blog!! The books are all related to stitching/needlework.
Some of them are favorites that I have had in my own library for years. Others are new that just appealed to me.
The link to the store is: Crossed Stitches bookstore. There is also a permanent link at the top of my blog.

I bought one ½ yard cut of fabric (hydrangeas) and 15 fat quarters. Believe me, this is only because I showed remarkable restraint! I am still going to try to get to the Quilt & Sewing Expo in Puyallup, WA next month so I didnt' want to spend too much money yesterday. Here's a picture of what I purchased:
- 9 pin - knock down 9 pins on your first ball, it counts as a strike
- 3,6,9 - everyone automatically gets credit for a strike in the 3rd, 6th and 9th frames
- splits - if you leave a split on your first ball, it counts as a strike
After I bowled, I had time to wander around the quilt show for a few minutes before it closed then I went and had dinner (Chinese) with a good friend. Later, we both went to the local casino to play for a bit. I had a free play coupon so I played on the casino's money which is always the best way to do it!
