PAS has passed. Whew. But these additional pattern books for fusing (a quilting technique) and crochet slipped into my collection earlier this month:

  • 200 Stitch Patterns for Baby Blankets
  • Couture Crochet Workshop: Mastering Fit, Fashion, and Finesse
  • Fun, Fast Fusies: Love to Quilt
  • Fusing Fun!: Fast Fearless Art Quilts
  • Noah's Ark Afghans and Accessories

I am definitely attracted to the pretty books of pattern stitches! These are some of the books I frequently refer to:

  • 99 Floral Motifs
  • 99 Granny Squares to Crochet
  • 101 Crochet Squares
  • 101 Granny Squares
  • 101 Ripple Stitches to Knit and Crochet
  • 101 Stitches for Afghans
  • 200 Crochet Blocks
  • 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns
  • 200 Stitch Patterns for Baby Blankets
  • 280 Crochet Shell Patterns

I'm also very attracted to blankets made with lots of colors - like granny squares, motifs, "scrap", ripples, and stripes!

Collections: On my "want" list

Of course I don't need any of these...especially considering the amount of crochet and quilting books I already have... But, these are on my "want" list:

  • 63 Cable Stitches to Crochet
  • 101 Ripple Stitches
  • 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns
  • Tunisian Baby Afghans
  • 24 Lovable Animal Quilt Blocks
  • Quilt A Colorful Christmas

All available at Annie's Attic; some on sale now; total is $53.92 + $9.00 shipping. I'm gonna think about it more.

[12:45pm November 11, 2006] Oh! I just discovered another "want"! 280 Crochet Shell Patterns which is available at Leisure Arts for $24.95 (I will wait until it is on sale).

Sketch of Cheryl

About Cheryl

Enjoys crocheting, gardening, cats, NASCAR (especially Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch!), reading, photography, snorkeling in Kailua-Kona with sea turtles, Sizzler's Mega Bacon Cheeseburgers, hot and iced decaf coffee, dark chocolate, color (yarn, fabric), playing around with web technologies - not necessarily in that order! Still very much a beginner with quilting, knitting, and sewing. Donates crocheted lap blankets.

List maker, detail-oriented, organized, leans heavily toward perfectionism. ISTJ. Libra.
