Just a thought for everyone -- when books are posted for sale here, I type the book name on Amazon.com. Sometimes Amazon.com will allow a free "preview" (a "look inside") of some of the pages. This allows me to get an idea of some of the projects in the book to see if I want to buy it from here!

I love that about Amazon, and also Connecting Threads lets you look inside a book.

Actually, Connecting Threads usually has MORE pics in their previews! I usually go there first, then to Amazon.

I also check amazon and Connecting Threads.

CT practically gives away the entire contents photo-wise.
