Magic Eight Ball

While traveling to Annapolis the other day, I found myself compelled, COMPELLED I tell you, to go into Borders and browse. After the sewing frenzy of late I soon found myself in front of the sewing section and spotted this little gem "The Sewing Answer Book" by Barbara Weiland Talbert. Now right on the cover Barbara makes the claim, "Solutions to every problem you'll ever face (seriously?), and answers to every question you'll ever ask." Wow. As I stood there in my state of dubiousness, pondering all the questions I could ask of this magic eight ball of a book, and weighing the merits of purchasing it, another woman walked up, quickly scanned the shelves in front of me, grabbed the other copy of this book and left. That sealed the deal for me.
P.S. Of course I will let you know if I can stump the book

that's so funny. Having someone else come and grab the book always does it for me too. Love the fabric with the picture, especially the one on the left, from my side it looks like yellow bursts.

A very COMPELLING tale, Alicia. Can you imagine if there had only been one book left? And you were looking at it and she asked you for it?
I will want to know if you stump the book. Like SewLindaAnn, I too love those fabrics. They all go together so well. Carolina
