My bestest friend in the whole world's birthday is on Tuesday, this is one of a few things I'm making for her.
She just graduated with her Masters in Library Science and I saw this quote on cafepress a while ago and always kept it in my mind for her.

I totally winged the berries which I was very proud of, no pattern or anything!  This little frame is so cute too, I got it at a huge flea market in May and have been holding on to it. 
The stack of books in the background are actually one of my jewelry boxes =D

Thanks for looking!

This really has me giggling.  Because I know a few people who say 'liberry' instead of 'library'. 

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Hehe, I love it! I have an MLS, too, and like most librarians, I am a huge sucker for anything library-related!

Excellent.  It drives me crazy when people say liberry.  The berries were a very cute idea.  That is a cool frame, too, I like the way it stands up.

That's so cute!  The berries at the bottom rock!

I truly appreciate this pattern, as I once dated a guy who said, "Liberry."  To this day I do not know if it was supposed to be funny or what.  I just know it irked the heck out of me!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
