    Red face Books, books, books.

    I finally have a handle on the quilting books I have collected. It is almost an obsession.

    They are shelved with foam core dividers and now, as of today, I have an Excel spreadsheet of all the titles by category. Still found at least 10 duplicates. The total, not complete, is 841. Whew.

    So many ideas, so little time.

    It seems I spent so much time trying to find a book that I reduced the time I could sew. No more.

    I have quite a library of quilt books also, but nothing like the number you have. I love to read them to learn new techniques for piecing and quilting. I only discovered two duplicates when I organized my collection.
