All of my quilt books are on a spreadsheet. Currently all 778 of them. I created the spreadsheet to prevent me from buying a book twice. I've done that at least a half dozen times in my quilting career. Once I did it three times! The book was "Butternut and Blue" by Barbara Brackman and Karla Menaugh. I kept thinking I wanted to buy it, but kept thinking I hadn't yet LOL! Luckily, the shop I frequented the most had the book - I'd bought one of the copies from her - and she let me return the two duplicates for credit.
Once I made the spreadsheet I didn't buy duplicate books again. Until now that is. When filling out the spreadsheet it helps to use the correct name of the book. (It also helps to take out one's phone and check the spreadsheet - but I'll never admit I didn't do that!) The spreadsheet had this book listed as "Schnibbles" by Carrie Nelson. It is obvious that isn't the name of the book. That's my excuse for buying it twice - and I'm sticking to my story!
My mistake is a gain for one of my readers. Leave me a comment on this post telling me whether or not you've done this before, and the name of the book if you remember. I want to be sure I'm not the only silly quilter who does this! Post before midnight Pacific Daylight Time on Sunday. On Monday I'll use a random number generator to see who wins this book.
I bought it because I thought cutting up my older fabric for quick piecing projects was a good idea. I still think it is. But I need only one book to do that LOL!
