I realized the other day on the way home from work that I need to stop the madness of chasing after charts and books that I don't need or have room for. Several weeks ago I had heard about the Margaret Sherry bookazine that had been put out. Now Margaret Sherry is one of my favorite designers. I just love the child-like wonders of her designs. I buy every magazine that has one of her designs in it. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear about this new publication. Until I found out just how hard it was going to be to get my hands on it. So I was driving home from work and decided to stop at Barnes & Nobel because I was sure they would have it. I was wrong. As I got in my car, I began planning my next stop. Now, mind you, it's 110 degrees out and humid to boot. And here I was planning a road trip to maybe, if I'm lucky, get a copy of this bookazine. I don't even know what designs are in it but I was determined to get one. Never mind that I knew that most of the patterns were in the magazines I already had. So I sat in my car and did some hard thinking. I decided I wasn't going to chase after the elusive bookazine. If I happen to come across it in my travels, that would be great. But I would not make a deliberate effort to find it. Yes, I would love to have all the patterns in one place. Actually I do. They're in a file folder in my filing cabinet. So I'm stopping the madness of having to have everything that everyone else has. I'll be happy for you if you find it and wish you well. Me, I think I'll just go dig out my file folder and drool over the ones I already own.
