SBQ: How Many Cross-Stitch Books?

This week's Stitching Bloggers Questions is: How many cross-stitch books do you own and do you use them?

I have tons of cross-stitch books. Probably more pattern books than any other kind of crafting book. I do not stitch from them very often, I must admit. What I do find myself doing, particularly when I lack inspiration, or get tired of a project, is page through them. I love being inspired by the books, finding pretty things I'd like to stitch "someday," and it usually gets my enthusiasm started when I am down.

I also usually pick my books up fairly cheaply used. I've only bought one or two at full price. The only flaw to this plan is storing lots of pattern books! I can't imagine parting with a single one, though I suppose some day I will have to cull the herd.

I don't have much else to add today. I've got a terrible sore throat, and I'm seriously thinking of going home sick. Fortunately, today has been pretty quiet. If the phone stays silent, I might make it. Talking is terrible. I can't even finish my coffee because it hurts to swallow, and I really need it because I feel so tired. Must be coming down with something.

Which always stinks, but my birthday is Saturday, and being sick on your birthday is Not Fair!
