Confession

I don't like "country" style patterns....except when I do.  I used to think I was pretty picky about the patterns I added to my stash, but lately, I'm beginning to question that!
I found these 2 pattern books today at the thrift store, and paid less than $1.50 total for them.  The cover design of the Laura Conley calendar grabbed my attention (love the cute little lady!), and  the old Vanessa-Ann Collection book, "Quilt Designs in Cross Stitch" from 1989, had these great nautical patterns...what can I say, I'm weak.  And someday when I die, my family will return all this stuff to the thrift store  from whence it came without a second thought.  It's like the circle of life for old craft patterns!!

I have to watch myself at used book shops. I'll nearly always pick up something because the price is so good. But, things generally end up migrating back when I do a big purge.

I'm the same as you with old samplers and country style. Not a fan in general until a specific design strikes my fancy. :)
