Library/Librarian Stitchalong
the "rules"
~draw your own (or if you can find a librarian embroidery patterns you can use those, too!) library or librarian themed pattern and stitch it up!
~keep your voice to a whisper
~have fun and please share pictures!

I thought this could be a fun stitchalong, as so many people are eager for librarian themed Sublime Stitching patterns! And the more, the merrier! So lets get stitching!

I'm in cowgirl!
My good friend is a school librarian and I'm sure she could use a surprise gift. I'll spend the next few days planning something.

here is a link to some library type clipart if anyone is interested:

Not sure if I'll be participating in this Stitchalong or not... but I did find a great link for library/librarian quotes!

Link is here: http://www.quotegarden.com/libraries.html

I thought a few of these would look nice, maybe stitched onto a pillow or a purse.  Cheesy

I wasn't going to do this one because I couldn't think of anything either, but then an idea just popped in my head.

I get way too many books to make a book tote for myself, but since I'll be having a baby, in the next few years I know we'll be going to the library all the time and checking out tons of kids books.

I don't have the patience to sew a bag, so I'm just going to buy a blank tote and embroider some books and a quote on it.  Smiley  Now let's just see how long it takes me to actually DO it.   hehe.

I did an embroidery of this clipart for the librarian love swap (round 2): http://www.gototem.com/Webgifs/ClipArt/Women/Librarian_Cartoon.GIF

Unfortunately I didn't take pictures, but as soon as my swap partner posts her pictures I'll show you guys my work!

I'm a library technician and I love the idea of the stitchalong! I'm just thinking of making a little patch for myself.

If you want funny library stuff, check out the webcomic www.unshelved.com hilarious! (and family friendly!)

and my favourite quote!

I work at a library, so I'm going to make myself a little purse with the logo on it. LOL. I'll get started on it right after I finish my dad's wallet.

It's pretty neat. It's more like a labyrinth then a library though.

And you should definitely join. I mean, your name is "librarylass." Cheesy lol.

I am thrilled to bits! I was a library teacher, now teach 1st grade but plan to get my degree for library teachers. I find it a very beautiful, noble, and above all, QUIET profession. I joined craftster just so I could do this. I can't wait!

4doxies, just a wee word about doing the library thing in schools, its not quiet, at least not in mine (and from colleagues, very rarely in their schools either). Universities and all places corporate I'm sure would by quiet, but schools? Not a chance.

That said, working in a school is MUCH more fun than working in a corporate situation, and you get to wear (most) of what you want. And being crafty/eccentric is practically a job requirement lol.

I have to weigh-in to say that public libraries are not always quiet either - mine actually sounds more like a daycare most days!

Mine was an innercity library, too. But the classes were small and we practiced. It wasn't silent, but it was quiet in a relaxing sort of way. Wink

We did beautiful things, though. However, we did have security down twice!
