Remember way back when Mary blogged about not winning the chicken wall hanging pattern on Ebay? I think she told you that Marsha had alerted her to the pattern and Mary, in turn, alerted me to what was posted because there were several redwork patterns up for bid as well. (And everyone knows how much I like that!) Well, I didn't win the patterns I wanted, but I did win a Sunbonnet Sue "tweener" (isn't that what they call 11-13 year olds now?) applique pattern. It is really cute. The dresses and bonnets are appliqued and the details are embroidered. One Sue plays with a puppy, another is holding a watering can, you get the idea. Unfortunately, I put the pattern away so I wouldn't lose it and then "lost" where "away" was, so I can't show you the cover. Sigh...
In any case, for some reason I kept an eye on that particular vendor, and she (I am assuming it is a she) put up some more items. I placed the asking bid on this embroidery pattern. I think they look like the Campbell Soup kids.
Among the other items up for bid, 3 caught my eye described variously as 6x6 inch Asian prints, 50 or 40+ or 49+ pieces and the asking bid was $7.99. There was one bid on the 50 piece package. I was pretty sure I knew what was being offered and bid on the other two. There were no other bids and I won! The package arrived yesterday. Here is a sample:
I must tell you that I am thrilled. These are exactly what I thought they were. There are at least 90 6x6 inch squares and they are all different fabrics (well, there are 3 or 4 that have a twin) and all Asian prints. I have some Asian print yardage that I have been accumulating, hoping to have enough to make a quilt someday (the fabric is really expensive). I think I may have enough now, don't you?
