Library Loot #12

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

Since I didn't really get any Christmas crafting done last year I thought I would get ahead of things so the first 7 books listed are the holds I'm picking up today the rest should be here by friday! Yay for library loot!!

What library loot have you picked up?


  1. That's quite a haul. You can make so many pretty things :)

    1. I got that one just because it was so weird. Maybe we can get ideas on what to make with all that fur that Felix sheds?

  3. Awesome haul! I'm hoping to do quite a few crafts this Christmas season as well but hadn't thought about checking out my library for some books. Thanks for the sharing the idea, happy reading and crafting!

    1. Thanks for popping by! I love craft books :) Pinterest is great but there is still something said to being able to hold your reference material in your hand. Glad I'm not the only Christmas crafter!

  4. Looks like someone is looking for Christmas ideas. Had to laugh at the Crafting With Cat Hair book, as much of what I stitch often has cat hair in it, though not intentionally. Thanks for visiting!

    1. That one was just so odd I had to pick it up lol. All of my knitting has cat and dog hair on it too. Thanks for stopping by Heather.

  5. I've checked the cat hair book out from my library too! Even though it's just a bit weird, you can't help but want to make all of the things! Thanks for visiting my library loot post!

    1. Awesome! Did you end up making anything from the cat hair? I suppose it's not that weird as there are folks out there that use spinning wheels and use dog fur to blend with wool. Us animal lovers are an odd bunch.
