I was over at Books for the Holidays...
...and I was checking out the latest post about "our own" lists. I had never thought to share that...
It is kinda funny actually, next Tuesday is my birthday and I have been trying to figure out what I really want. I just keep thinking about books! I have so many that I'm blessed with through reviews and such, but there are still so many others that I want. Then there are the quilts, I have so many quilt kits that I'm working on that it's ridiculous and I really should not acquire any more until I have completed some of these, but there are just so many cute and pretty ones out there that just scream cozy at me! Then there are the cross stitch kits... I have been pretty good about not getting any of those lately, but then my sister goes and gets pregnant again and I am off to the store to get a cross stitch quilt kit, but can I stop with just the one?!? Of course not! Too many others were on sale or calling my name. *sigh*
One of the absolute best things about my house is the surprise Quilting Den. The official name of my bonus room is the "Quilting Den". My mama came up with that. It covers both the quilts and the reading part. *grin* Well... when we were looking at the house we knew it was four bedrooms. Master on bottom and three on top.. It was not until we were in the house and walking up the stairs and we were like "huh? There are five doors..." Well!!! Three bedrooms, one bathroom and a HUGE bonus room!! MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE! *snicker*
At least DH does not have to look at fabric and books all over the place. I'm relatively cleaned up, nothing crosses the threshold and that works for me. (Quilt planning can get a little hectic...)
So... I'm always open for cross stitch quilts, especially if they include quilts.. Then quilt kits... I'm such a sucker... and about books... well I'll share a more specific list....

Okay, now for an explination. My favorite types of books are historical fiction, mostly Christian, but not always limited to that. I'm not sure out of last year from my sister that I have gotten books as gifts... which is odd considering how much of a book junkie I am. I love books. I would love to receive any and everything as a gift. I always keep my goodreads profile update with what I own and I even have a "to-own" list so people could know what I really want. LOL www.goodreads.com/profile/cherryblossommj
Most of these books make it on my wishlist because either I read them from the library and I'm dying to have them for my permanent shelves, or it finishes off a series I'm holding on to, or I just plain love everything by the author.
Oh, and I'm always looking for a good vegetarian cookbook to find some creative ways to add veggies into our meals...
Oh, and I'm looking also at those devotionals that deal with good books like: Walking with Bilbo or Walking with Frodo by Sarah Arthur, or The Gospel According to Tolkien by Ralph Wood, and so on...
I'm sure I'll also think of a million more things to say as soon I press Publish...
