Today's SBQ is:
Do you have an organizational system for your patterns? If so, how do
you organize them? If not, have you considered organizing them?
I have no organizational system for my cross stitch patterns. I have them separated into stuff I am doing, stuff I really want to do soon, stuff I really want to do later, and stuff I used to like but I'm not really interested in anymore. I haven't really considered organizing my needlework patterns.
My knitting patterns on the other hand are organized into categories by article of clothing and they are all in page protectors in three ring binders--I like to think of it as my own mini yarn pattern library.

This week's questions are from Cate.
- Do you have any books that are signed by the author? Yes, I have both of Debbie Macomber's books about knitting signed and I have the Merry Gentry series by Laurell Hamilton signed. I love the idea of book signings--although personally I would love to actually have some more intimate time with some of my favorite authors--it would be fascinating to talk to them about their ideas and their process.
- Do you have a story behind the autograph? Well, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for Debbie Macomber(I had received a mailer about her book tour and decided to take my two books to get signed).
I remember when I went to Laurell Hamilton's book signing I was so nervous. I wanted to ask her something brilliant about her work(the whole concept of her stories is amazing to me); instead I got up to her and her husband and as she signed my books I asked her, "Please don't kill Richard" (he's a character from her Anita Blake series and I would go into mourning on par with the loss of Sirius Black if she offs Richard). She laughed and said she gets that all the time. She said she didn't want to kill him off but she did think he needed some serious therapy. So much for my brilliant question.
I would like to get my Dark Hunter books signed because Sherrilyn Kenyon would be fascinating to talk to(her story concept is really original as well). And the Holy Grail of autographs would of course be JKRowling--what I would give for a little bit of time to pick her brain. And there are numerous deceased authors I would love to have sign stuff too.
