    I love the crossroads block. Looks 3-D. Both books look like great inspiration for project of all kinds.

  12. Claudia says:

    Did someone say “book”? I love books. You should see my bookshelves. Of course, I would have to move the piles of books and stash in front of them, which means cleaning off another spot to put all that stuff…. well, you get the idea.

  13. Nancy Smith says:

    Love the apron book! Nice books! Would not turn down any of them!!

  14. SewLindaAnn says:

    Wouldn’t miss it, it will be my 3rd time participating and it’s a blast!

    This could be exciting to try and win a book for my library. Good books are always welcome!
