Harvest Moon Update... and Mike's new car...

Hmmmm.... I wondered all day today what I would choose to stitch now that MTM is done for the month. I can stitch what I want, as long as I remember to put a couple of days aside to work on Mystery IX still this month. We got home late (due to what I will tell you below), so I simply picked up Harvest Moon and got a few bands done on that... almost done now! It is too long for the scanner now, so I hope this photo is going to look OK.... (PS - I ordered the Jill Rensel mat set for this sampler today as a little birthday gift to myself - her mats are too pretty to ignore with these SB samplers).

The news of the day is.... Mike got a new car. He realized he really did still want a Corvette, so the Chrysler is for sale and there is a new Corvette in the garage... so compulsive!! I will surely get a photo soon!

Yay, a four day weekend for me! Due to Mike getting a car, I get a stitching spree at Colonial Needleworks tomorrow, and maybe a trip to the movies if I feel so inclined :-)

You know... some people can be so immature. I was on ebay the other day and saw MLI's Bookmark Colletion up for auction. I had sold mine years ago and regretted it, so I put a small bid in on it...which outbid a previous bidder. That bidder then went and outbid me on other items I was bidding on.... checked her/his bidding history and she/he was only bidding on the items I was bidding on.... many of them not even stitching related. Do you think I hurt her/his feelings by bidding on the same item? Now she/he won the other items... enjoy them, they are from such a variety of areas... plants, charts, socks - LOL! Too, too funny... but so strange! I wish folks would grow up - when you get outbid, it is not something personal - LOL! Anyone else had something like that happen to you? I must say, though... if I see a friend bidding, I never outbid them....

Stitched on today: Bordeaux Mystery Sampler and Harvest Moon

I bet you feel set free now this month's work on MTM is complete! Harvest Moon is looking good.
My husband is a bit like yours with cars - as soon as he's got one he likes he wants to change it!
Hope you have a good time at Colonial Needleworks.

Harvest Moon looks lovely. Hope you enjoy your shopping spree, look forward to seeing what you get. How very bizarre about the bidder on Ebay - a right crank!

When it comes to eBay, I'm a "snipper"... I rarely put a bid on an auction until the last minute (or second if I can). It's what works for me (I've been using eBay for about 8 years). I feel I have a better chance of "winning" and for a better price. If someone is willing to pay more than me for whatever it is they're always going to win the auction anyway... so it's all perfectly fair. :) I certainly wouldn't be offended if someone outbid me, though. That's what an auction is about for goodness sakes! It's hilarious that they outbid you on everything you were bidding on... too much time on their hands if you ask me!! LOL

TEEHEE, Mike is much like Allen. At one point about 18 months ago, Allen went three cars and finally settled on his Subaru. He misses the convertable but the Legacy is more "family friendly". I am still waiting for him to come home with the "I've been bad" look and a new car in the driveway:)

Wow, I am loving Harvest Moon! What a soothing piece to look at! I can't wait to see that one finished, there can't be much left :)
Congratulations to Mike on the car he wanted!

I love Harvest Moon. My BF will be relieved that Mike got another Corvette; Tom's a Corvette owner himself and figured Mike would be disappointed with the Chrysler, even though it's a perfectly nice car.

Congratulations on finishing your section on MTM, both it and Harvest Moon are looking stunning.

Funny you should mention eBay...I've been having some troubles of my own over there (dealing with a seller who keeps "forgetting" to ship my items - ugh). I might outbid someone, but I can't imagine tracking down EVERYTHING they were bidding on and then starting bid wars....how silly (and expensive!).

I love your Harvest Moon sampler - have fun stash shopping this weekend!

catandturtle said...

Gee, and I thought bidding was the whole point of ebay. :) I agree, people can be so immature. Have fun shopping at Colonial Needleworks. I wish I could be there today too instead of at ssssllllloooowwwwww work. Have fun.

Harvest Moon is so pretty! The Jill Rensel mat will complete it! Congrats on Mike's new car and your resultant shopping spree! What fun!

Harvest Moon is looking LOVELY!!! that one has been on my "want" list FOREVER! I'll definitely have to break down and buy it some day.
Sorry to hear about the Ebay thing! I've never heard of someone doing that before ... wow!
Congrats on the shopping spree!!! CAN'T wait to see what you get *grin*

Jenna said...

Harvest Moon is lovely and I can't wait to see the mat you ordered to go with it. Enjoy your trip to the LNS!
