Craft Book Challenge

For some reason I seem to need a challenge to get me going on something. I find I can't just get to it on my own. It's the procrastinator in me, I guess. I've started working on a quilt for Anne Marie's 9 patch challenge. Finally, a reason to sew again! I'm having so much fun with it. I almost forgot how much I love to create.
Today while I should have been sewing but wsa reading blogs instead, I found a blog new to me and she is hosting the best challenge ever. Actually, I'll just say that after two years of not sewing or reading any creative blogs, they are all new to me. Anyway, Liesel has challenged us to make one thing every month this year from a craft book we already own. Now how easy is that? I can do that! It will give me a chance to use some of the hundreds thousands of dollars of books that are sitting in my closet. If I'm smart and crafty, and you know that I am indeed a smart and crafty gal, I can even combine the two challenges. Yessiree, I can make a nine patch something out of a book in my collection! Oh yeah, baby. I know I may seem a bit too excited about that possibility but it's quiet in the house today, I don't have much else going on this afternoon ;-) So, what am I doing sitting in front of my computer, you ask? I don't know, it's time to get sewing.
