Stash Additions

I have to admit my expectations regarding my post-operative activity level was extremely optimistic, to say the least.  My surgery was on Monday last week, and I expected to be home Tuesday and ready to piddle around in my Sewing Room by Thursday or Friday, at the latest.  In fact, I remember telling my friend, Denise, that I had to get in my final bid on an eBay auction I was watching which ended around 9:45pm that Monday night.  "My surgery is robotic and the hospital has WiFi, so I should be feeling well enough to go online and submit my bid."  I still remember her laughing at me.

Two weeks later, not only did I miss all of my target days and auction deadlines - and I don't even care that I did - but I've had little energy to do much more than surf the internet, watch TV, shower and make my bed (sometimes).  However, prior to surgery, I did win auctions for two separate lots of sewing patterns and I just now feel energetic enough to examine them and share with you what I received.  I'm hoping to have energy tomorrow to actually catalog them, add to my stash and outline my process for you.


Here's what I received in Lot #1...
 


 



...and Lot #2.




I have to admit some of the patterns in each lot leaves me feeling lukewarm, and its possible I may put them back up for auction on eBay; I'm still mulling that over.  However, others in the lots are classic design and/or really cute and will be welcomed additions to the stash.

Be blessed!

    1. Kelly, I feel your pain. I missed the deadline on a Vogue designer pattern I really wanted. The price and shipping were very low, but I slept right through it. Oh, well...maybe next time. Thank you for your comment and taking the time to read my post - I really appreciate it!

    1. I understand, Chica Diva...there is quite rush, especially if you're able to outbid another determined shopper.

  3. I won't say "WOW what a lot of patterns", but rather "WOW what a lot of possibilities."! I'm a pattern lover too, and if I continue at the rate I'm going I'll need to buy a whole nother house just to have a place to store them (hahaha). Glad you are recouping well!
