Well, last week Marsha e-mailed and sent me a link to ebay. Wow! There it was: the original instructions to The Early Bird Quilt. Whoopee! The seller was obviously cleaning up (or out) and had/has a huge assortment of patterns. Alright... I am on a roll now! I bid twice and was immediately concerned: someone outbid me that fast?! My previous experience with ebay was a "Bid now" price and the item was mine.
Thinking of Liri when I saw some redwork items, I e-mailed her right away. Boy! Aren't cyber quilt friends great? And Liri had me thank Marsha too!
I watched the days go by and raised my bid a little each day. Yesterday afternoon I received this notice:
|Someone outbid you; sorry you didn't win this time.|
Now mind you, my $15 bid was probably double what I paid back in the 80's. But $26.65?! Turns out there were 3 bidders besides me. So I will wait longer and maybe the chance will come along again. $26.65? For that price, I normally get a whole book.
