I would love to be able to find this pattern. Can you point me in the right direction?
This is such a cute pattern. I'm a book lover. Good job!
She has great taste! Love it! :)
Looks like a lot of fun!
Very pretty work
Thanks. I did another one for her several years ago. I don't know why she likes this type of pattern. When I say that it was fun, I should have said that it almost stitched itself. It required very little concentration. I had a mishap with the variegated floss. I bought the pattern in San Antonio and didn't begin stitching it until 5 years later. She had sold me only one of each color, so I ordered more from ECS. What a difference. The ECS ones all matched but not the original floss. I did a lot of blending and it turned out okay. I was concerned that I would have to frog, frog, frog. I wish that patterns would state how many skeins of each color are required.
pam, I'll go through my stash tomorrow and will post the info.
pamdick, the pattern is by Little House Needleworks and is called "The Library. It's Little House Chart Number Seventy-Two.

It was smaller and really nice. I'm not a huge fan of the primitive stuff but DD likes them.
Oh I love the saying mostly. Although the rest is cute. My family does LOTS of reading so it would be so nice to make it and give it as a gift. Or maybe hang it above my chair where I read. :) Thank you so much for the name and the information on the pattern. I will search it out.
