Le sigh. We have reached the point in every spring when my husband and I vehemently agree we can no longer live in this house, and we agree that we will sell it and move to a more appropriate house forthwith.
At which point I feverishly set about decluttering, organizing, cleaning and stressing. In the past, which of course will NOT be this year, things very rapidly fall apart after this point aannnnnd we're still in this house.
'What's wrong with the house?' you ask. Eh, this is a sewing blog which means I try my best not to swear and bore you with details about heating and cooling systems or water drainage. Let's just say it's not for me. I bought it as a single lady and things have changed.
Anyhoodle, I spent the better part of yesterday and today attacking my home office. I work out of my house, so this was quite a daunting task. Mixed in with sixteen hundred power cords to various computer gadgets I no longer own was a wealth of books that I am no longer interested in
Don't get me wrong, I love me some books. I buy sewing books just so's I can look at them. And no too long ago I bought knitting books for that very same reason.
I can knit. I can, really. I just don't. One of these days (today! I vow it is today!) I will realize that and stop buying knitting books.

If you would like to be the new owner of one of these lovelies, just leave a comment as an entry by Friday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. CST. If you have a preference for which book you'd like, let me know that in your comments. If your email is not linked to your blogger profile, please leave it so I can get a hold of you.
I'll ship these anywhere (just not to my new house), so international entries are perfectly fine.
I'm not supposed to be sewing while I'm organizing so my machine is conveniently at the shop. Stay tuned, I may get inspired to give away something else tomorrow (when I tackle my sewing stash).
