Off to the Races?

Well, not actually! We’ve loaded our truck with supplies for our LCITW (little cabin in the woods) and are headed north to awaken our summer getaway from it’s winter slumber.

2018 Season Opening at our LCITW

Before hitting the road we made a pit-stop at our local library to retrieve a book I had on hold. The book, Fabric Embellishing The Basics & Beyond by Ruth Chandler, Liz Kettle, Heather Thomas and Lauren Vlcek, was one I had learned about on IG.

Fabric Embellishing

Rather than buy the book right away I decided I should follow the example of Tierney from Tierney Creates  and browse a borrowed copy. Often times my spur of the moment book purchases end up being a disappointment.

As we pulled into the parking lot of the library I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten my most important personal item, my purse. Needless to say a trip back home was in order. To complicate things my library card was inside the purse! Thankfully my husband had his card so he could use it to retrieve the book. Of course that meant he would have to endure the berating of the librarian for not having mine. He usually makes up a pretty good sob story to persuade them to go outside their policy and allow him to check my items out.

After returning with my book we went back home to get my purse. The short distance between my home and the library afforded me ample time to browse the book and conclude that it would be a worthwhile purchase.

Before leaving town I located an online resource to acquire a “very good” used copy. The book should arrive in a week or so. In the meantime I can read my borrowed copy. When I decide to begin experimenting I will share tales of my adventures. Now, back to my reading and the bouncy ride provided by our oversized, diesel truck.

Thank You for visiting. I look forward to our next encounter.

Talk with you soon!

  1. My librarians see me so often, I can walk in cardless any time and walk out with whatever I want. They are so sweet, they even save books for me they think I need. LOL

  2. Hi Cindy,
    Enjoy your LCITW! I know you will, and now you have something to keep you busy in the evenings while relaxing. You’ll have time to plan some beautiful projects or possible projects before your own book arrives. Great idea Tierney! 🙂 I download the books onto my iPad and then take a picture of the front cover so I can remember which book it is that I have to get! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. So glad you are using your library as an option to deeply browse a book before purchasing and thanks for the mention 😀
    Little cabin time again! I’ve been following you for awhile as I remember your previous LCITW posts – have fun and happy creating there (and maybe some fabric embellishments!) 😀

    1. First of all, you are more than welcome! I thoroughly love reading and following your blog. You provide so much inspiration. Mentioning your blog on mine is an honor.
      I try checking the library first before a purchase but our library isn’t quite as resourceful as yours.
      It is that time again! I’m sure many projects will be worked on there. 😊❤️

    1. Awe now that’s sad. Our library system recently joined resources with other libraries in our half of the state so now we have a much larger resource to borrow from. 😊
