It's not just quilters . . . . .

I'll admit it.  Once in a great while, I have purchased the same pattern or book twice.  Obviously I must have liked it enough . . . .

While rearranging the newly painted bookcases a few weeks ago, I noticed Dear Hubby had the same tendencies.


Two books right there in the middle on cabinetry building.  And I'm willing to bet that he hasn't made anything from that book.  Kind of like me and some of my favorite quilting books.

But it makes me feel better that it's not only quilters that have bought the same thing twice!


Blessings, Cathi

I just went through my Cd's and found several that I do not remember buying. LOL It is like getting new ones all over again. I am glad that I didn't duplicate what I already have. I have done this with books and magazines, though. Have a good day.

I have been known to do it with novels too. Thank goodness, there's a really nice person at Amazon who pops up and tells me if I'm about to do it again.

This post makes me smile. My husband has done the same thing, not with books but with tools. No, we're not alone! :)
