Okay Call the "White Coat" Guys...

....cause I have finally lost it for sure!
 I just purchased a great book...The Artful Ribbon by Candace Kling. It is a book that I had purchased a few years ago...and gave away or sold...so needed a new one.
Saw it on Pinterest the other day...and it made me think about how much I wished I had it ...and that it looked familiar...I checked the bookcase and it was not there. So, I knew that I had sold or given away my copy...probably in the de-stashing I did the first part of the year.
 
So, I've been waiting on the book to arrive and it did today...so glad to finally have it here!
But...when I put it on the bookshelf...here is what I saw:
 
WHAT! Geez...and frankly, this is not the first time I've done this. Seriously, I need to be better organized or something!
 
So, what to do?
Well, we have not had a drawing lately...so I'm going to GIVE AWAY my newly purchased "extra" book! 
Here are the rules to be considered in this drawing:
 
1) STUDENTS ONLY WILL BE CONSIDERED so tell me which class you have taken. You do not need to have finished the course...but will need to have at least completed the first 2 tasks. (Just registering, but not being able to get started will not qualify you.)
 
2) Leave a comment below with the class info needed. Do not send me emails...only those Valid Comments on THIS POST will be considered.
 
 
3) You have until midnight on Thursday (7/23, Central Standard Time) to leave your comment. I will use the date stamps on the comments to determine if you made the deadline for consideration. On Friday, I will review the comments...and compile a list of valid entries. Then, I will use a RANDOM GENERATOR to pick the winner.
I will post the winner here on this post...by Sunday; after I have contacted them via email. I will use the emails from the class roster of the Course you say you took.
Good luck...hope you win!
 
July 26, Edited to add: 
There were 40 folks entered in the drawing...I checked the comments against the prior class registrations rosters...and if the person was there...listed them on my Drawing List...and assigned them the next number.

Then, I went to random.org and ran their random number generator for any number from 1-40. The result was:

And, #18 was Kathy Lamb of Illinois!
The book is on it's way Kathy...sorry I did not have 39 more so all who entered could have one.
Hugs,!

Sandra said...

Hiya Kathy, would love to give this book a home where it will be well and gently used. Do I really need to list the classes?

BCQC
ICQC101, 102, 103 & 107

plus your original ICQC class :)

Awwww...students only?!? How about a student in waiting? It looks like a really great book, I will have to find a copy. L

Magpie's Mumblings said...

oooh boy - I'm right with you on the white coat guys. I can't tell you how often I've done the very same thing (it's so utterly embarrassing that I won't even admit it to myself!). I have finally resorted to making a list in my word programme and refusing to buy ANY book until I've checked the list first. It's saved me from grief a couple of times already so definitely a good exercise. So...having checked my list....I'm throwing my name in the hat for this book. BCQC and ICQC for me (so far). Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi Kathy,
Oh, what a lovely book! I have taken your BCQC,ICQC 101,102,103,and107. I would love to own this book so I'am throwing my hat in the ring to. Thank you for everything .

Christine Barnsley said...

Hello Kathy and thank you for the chance to win this fabulous book.... it looks lovely! I took your BCQC in January of this year and since then took your ICQC 101. I am currently working through both ICQC 103 and 107 and I must say I am having a great time! Really enjoying them and learning so much! Thank you!!

Theresa Fancher said...

Hi Kathy,

Thanks!

Hi Kathy :) I've taken the BCQC and I have several ICQC in various states of progress... 101, 102, 103 and 107 I believe. I've been absent lately and I'm afraid I may have to do a retake of some things at a later time... medical problems, ugh.

I have done what you did more times than I care to count! My solution to this is Library Thing http://www.librarything.com - it is a job to enter all of your (500+) books initially *ahem*, but they have a barcode scanner available very reasonably that makes things go a LOT faster. You can tag the books and sort them into groups and things. Here is my list if it helps... http://www.librarything.com/catalog/gshillitani ...check out the various groups and tags and things. The CueCat is here http://www.librarything.com/more/store/cuecat - I have one and it works great!

The best thing about Library Thing is you can search your books by title, author, group, tag, whatever you want. So if you wanted to check to see if you had that book just search in your books by title... at least that way you know you have it - in my case, *finding* it in the house can be a challenge! LOL Anyway, no more duplicate book buying for me :D

Kathryn said...

Lol. Been there, done that. I would love to have a reference book on ribbons. I am almost done with your beginners class. I have learned so much and I am very glad I signed up. Thanks again for taking time to teach. Kathryn Carlson Klcarlson1@yahoo.com

Quayceetatter said...

Looks like a wonderful book, Thanks for the chance to win the book. And yes, I have done the same thing.(exasperating when it shows up!!!) I have completed the beginner class, designing and piecing crazy quilt blocks and just finished the Silk Ribbon Class. Every time I blog I let everyone know about these wonderful and informative classes. You can always learn something new. Thanks Kathy for all your efforts and guiding us all on our CQ and Silk Ribbon journey! (:

Melody said...

I have taken your basic class and I am happy to report that I have been converted to using a hoop for most projects! Thanks I took the dying class and I am almost done, still need to paint those darn charms and I am enrolled in your intermediate class and will become actively involved this weekend as I have had to order new ink!!
Than you so much for your generosity!!

cq4fun said...

I'm not in the drawing, but I had to tell you how much I laughed. I do things like that ALL the time!

Bren said...

Hey, I've got where I don't even get excited about losing something any more. It'll turn up sometime, somewhere.

If you ordered to book, it must be a treasure.

I've taken these courses & hope to take more from you:

BCQC,
ICQC 101,102,103,and 107

Thanks for a wonderful opportunity.

BCQC, Started the old ICQC, Intermediate 101 and 103. Thanks for the chance to win what looks to be a great book. Hugs, Phyllis ptl1957@hotmail.com

Ruth B said...

I can so relate to this situation! I must say it is good to see it happens to others too. I took the beginner class and have all the supplies for the dyeing class.

Karen Jones said...

Hi Kathy.... I'm busy with your Basic course at the moment. Would give two Koeksusters for a copy of that book 😃😃

OwlBe said...

Hi Kathy,
Yep, been there, done that, and I don't need a t-shirt! lol! The book would be just grand.
I've been with you through classes BCQC Basic, ICQC 101, 102, 103 & 107 - in a block of time 1/9/2015 to 7/18/2015.
Thanks Kathy for all you do-

Can't Stop Stitchin said...

Hi Kathy ~ Love your classes! Just last night I was organizing my "notebooks" from the classes I have taken from you on a new shelf in my sewing studio for easier access. The original ICQC, there was also the Dyeing Class, and the Thread embellishment class, and the Beginner Crazy Quilt Class. and now the Silk Ribbon Embroidery Class. and I think there was another one in there too. Woohoo! Loving your classes! Love the notebooks of all the information to refer back to. Would also enjoy any book you recommend :) If teacher thinks it is a good resource, it must be :)
Thanks so much Kathy for sharing your love of crazy quilting.
Godspeed,
mary

Kathy Lamb said...

Hi Kathy,
This is one of the funnier stories because we can all relate! It must be a really good book to keep attracting you, though. I love books of all kinds (I'm a retired English teacher) and am just beginning a collection of art/crafts/quilting books. I took your BCQC, ICQC and 103 so far. I'm buying ribbons towards mini SRE in August. I'm hooked. Thank you for a whole new hobby. Kathy Lamb Illinois

Heather said...

I have just completed the ICQC-107 class, but have also taken the beginner's class and the 101, 102, and 103 classes. Each of the classes was an absolute delight and I learned so much from each class.

I would love to win a copy of this book. I borrow it from the library from time to time and I always wish that I had my own copy.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I would love a copy of this book! I believe I have seen Candace demonstrate on HGTV years ago when their programming was more crafty--she is very talented! I have almost completed class one--slowly but surely getting there. Thanks for all that you do!

Cindy said...

Doreen Gabe said...

Hi Kathy, I am laughing about your book purchase. It seems like we might be sisters from another mother! I cannot tell you how many doubles I have wound up with over the years. I have taken your beginning class and now I am enrolled in class 103 and 107. I am totally loving learning CQ! You are a thoughtful and generous teacher. Sharing your love for CQ is a gift I will not soon forget. I look forward to taking more classes with you in the future. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful book. Hugs, Doreen

Consuelo said...

Kathy, Thanks for the chance to have that wonderful book. I have a good home for him. I've been a student of BCQC and ICQC 101, 103 and now 107. Hugs

Marilyn said...

Hi Kathy, I don't want to enter the contest because I already have the book but do you think that this means we need to keep all of our books and never purge? I'm just in mid-purge now but I'm giving mine to my friend who will store them at her house and then I can borrow them if I find I need them (grin)

Linda said...

I'm not a student, but I was drawn to your website by reading raves about you on Christine Barnsley's site http://patchworkallsorts.blogspot.com/ I just printed out your color theory chart and am going to laminate it. I decided to read your post and had to laugh out loud. I have done the very same thing! (Christine didn't ask me to do this, but I vote for her to win - lol!)

Monika Dent said...

Hi Kathy,
I am not currently enrolled in any of your classes, as I needed a summer break, but I already took BCQC, ICQC 101, ICQC 102 and ICQC 103. I want to take ICQC 107 in August health permitting. I would treasure this book, as I am still very much a beginner and have not collected a lot of resourse matterials.

Carolyn said...

Hi Kathy, oh you clever girl!!! You are not the only one who has done this. I have too and on more than one occasion!! I think we are both on the wrong side of 65! I am one of your two South African students having completed the BCQC and ICQC101 courses and I'm busy with 103 and thoroughly enjoying it. Should you choose me for this beautiful book, I am more than willing to pay for the shipping. Thank you for the chance.

crazed said...

Hi Kathy... I have taken and enjoyed your BCQC, ICQC 101, & 102 and am in progress of 103 and 107 though I keep getting derailed by summer on those two! Would love to check out this book! Thanks for your generosity of sharing your time and knowledge with these classes! Ruth C.

Janet Miller said...

LOL! White coat "guys". I worked 38 years as a psychiatric nurse. I hear you, I do the same thing. Recently, I almost did the same thing, but Amazon is nice enough to tell That I had already purchased it and BCQC, ICQC< 103,107 (just finished today), and the color theory coarse ( I'm going to finish it soon). I would love to win the book. Janet M

Linda Hopkins said...

Kathy, I have done the same thing often myself. Well at least after the giveaway you will still have a copy. Took your CQ 101 and in the process of taking your beginning intermediate class. Linda H
