I have succumbed

I was soooo tempted, but I was avoiding the temptation. Then my Mom bought them and has been raving about them. So today, I took a little container full of change to the Coinstar machine and got myself an Amazon e-certificate. There was enough change in that container to pay for both The Civil War Love Letters book and the Civil War Diaries book as well as two other books I have wanted for a while, Prairie Children and Their Quilts and Learn to Applique with Pat Sloan.

I will never in my lifetime be able to complete all these projects that I want to do, but I can have fun trying, right? LOL.

OH you will have fun making these blocks and just think you can do it from your fabric collection.
I am really enjoying making the civil war diary blocks

We were sharing the same wavelength I guess, I ordered them this morning from amazon too. I have no business doing so am I'm only beginning the Dear Jane and have made only a few blocks so far.

Hi Tracey,
Whew, I just got caught up on all of your posts. I absolutely loved going on your virtual shop hop!! You picked up some wonderful things and I enjoyed seeing all the versions of the shop hop quilts. I am going back up to Country Treasures for their retreat. Two of my friend and I decided to go since visiting there. We just loved the shop and the staff. Hopefully we will be able to see some of the other shops that you stopped at on your trip. Thanks so much for sharing. Sounds like a great time.

Can't wait to see your first blocks!
I only have the CWD book. For me that will be enough to keep me busy.

I grew in in CT(Ridgefield) and hope to get back this summer to see my mum. There used to be a great shop over in Somers, NY. Have you ever been to that one?

I have been watching everyone do these blocks and I think I am going to cave and get the books too! They just look like so much fun and a little less intimidating than the DJ blocks. and we DO live in the North, so I guess we are somewhat obligated to make them.:)

Hi...I came across your beautiful blog while "googling" Quilting in CT (for my wife). I was looking to find classes, workshops, clubs, etc (S.East CT) that might help her get started in quilting. Any suggestions?
Thank you so much.

Oh, I see! I didn't realize that there are two different Civil War books. They both look great. These are just the sort of thing I love. Thanks for showing the books. I'm going to check out Prairie Children and Their Quilts too.
