Boy I hear you! I do like the library having on-line renewals now with emails to let us know the books are due.

My DH and I read a lot. I bought about 25 books at the Library sale and then passed them around to our Friday night dinner friends. We get a lot of mileage out of them. No surprise our friends read a lot of the same things we like. Once they make the rounds the go back to the Friends to be resold.

I love books. I am a member of our local friends of the library. I go to their yearly book sale and buy a bunch of books. They let me come early because I'm going to buy $50-$100 in books. :) Most people think I'm nuts but this way I can read them and not have to pay fees when they are overdue. Also I can highlight them.

It is a very good chance that if you liked books, I would read them and then pass them on...my sister loves my book hand-me-downs. :) Also most of their book sales are like 50cents a book.

I'll be helping McJulieO again this year to make items to sell at the Friends of the Library annual book sale and at the book store. Proceeds from the sales go to buy extra books and fulfill other needs for our local library.

That is so awesome...I wish I had time to do more for charity. Between working full-time and knitting for my new granddaughter it is hard to do anything else.

I have a friend that was hinting she'd like a quilt next year from me. I figured it out that I haven't quilted in about 7 years...so it's time.

We handed out over 125 angels at Christmas to the people in the nursing home and retirement home. I hand cut them out.

I do a lot of embroidery and finished another one tonight.

onward to 2011.

Just imagine if we all put our creative energy into a project in our community that would make live better for someone?

This year I am going to make at least 2 quilts for the Court Appointed Special Advocates. These folks go with a child who is removed from the home by the courts. Each child is given a quilt to wrap up by the advocates as well as a toy. The advocates stay with the child throughout their dealings with the courts.

They do an exceptional job with the kids and so I think that is a worthy cause for my energies.

How about everyone else.
