Carissa, you are probably going to think I had too much fun putting your blocks together. When pulling scraps, I kept thinking about what sort of books would have these fabrics for covers and then I started putting the "books" with "similar topics" together. Thus, we have a section of cook books...
gardening books, and books on mid-century modern design.
In this photograph, the books to the left and the right are novels. Those in the center have titles like "Parenting Your Teen." Oh dear.
I hope you like them. If they are too novelty for you, feel free to leave them out. Stitch them into placements or something. :)
And Jacquie, here are your crosses. I've no funny stories to go along with these, but they do make me laugh because I was watching "Lost" while piecing them and every time I see them I think about "Lost" and how someone described it as similar to "getting really drunk and reading a choose-your-own-adventure book from back to front."
Both packages were posted last week so you should have them soon!
