If I Only Had A Brain

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about having a Shakespeare in the Park quilt on my to do list. Beth left me a comment telling me about Judy Martin's Virginia Stars sampler quilt and I hate to admit how long I spent trying to find a picture of that quilt and also which of Judy's books it was in. Well, I finally found it in Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts.

Then I searched Ebay, Amazon and just about everywhere else for the best price on that book. You already know I'm impulsive. I had an order all ready to place with Amazon but didn't quite have enough for the free shipping so for some unknown reason, I held off placing my order. Good thing too.

Today, as I was looking through my quilt books for some inspiration, guess what I found - yup - this book. I have absolutely no recollection of ever buying it.

Since I have bought the same book twice before, about a year ago I made an Excel spreadsheet with all my quilt books on it. It took me hours to input all the information but it isn't as good an idea as it may seem. You see, first of all you have to have a copy of the list with you when you are shopping, and second, you have to remember to update it when you buy a new book. I had looked on this list for Judy's book, but it wasn't there, so whenever I bought it, I didn't add it to my list.

I'm sure most of you have seen the "icanhascheezburger" and "ihasahotdog" websites. I just couldn't resist posting this one as it really made me chuckle.
