How can a person resist these bargains?

OMGosh - I was just reading an excellent tutorial blog for applique by Carol at Quilting Adventure. That's the FIRST excellent happening, but she also mentions a book by Harriet Hargrave, on Applique, so I clicked on THAT link, which took me to Amazon.com. Now, I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon.com, because I am a sucker for more books, but I glanced over the ad, and then, wonder of wonder, alongside my Amazon window pops up a separate window called a "Shopper's Report" giving me 5 other places to buy the book and all of them for LESS than the already discounted cost at Amazon.com. Competition!!! These bargains are getting near impossible to resist!

Maybe I should just concentrate on Carol's tutorial. First I need a round tuit ...

I have that book and it is great. Of course, Harriet and I go way back so I'll buy any book she writes. Yesterday I called Sew-Art at 1-800-231-2787 and talked to Chuck. He carries 137 colors of DMC 50 weight thread which is perfect for machine applique. I ordered gray, 4 different grays to be exact. Let me know if that helps.

I have a round tuit on my fridge. Its really cute. It doesn't help me at all to get going, but it is fun to look at!

I'm always a sucker for those bargains too. Get the applique book and let me know what you think.

I love Amazon.com - first they make it way too easy for me to buy books online and then they come out with their electronic book and that's even better.
