I Won! I Won!

I tend to avoid Ebay, because I find too many things that I cannot live without, and it's just easier not to know what you're missing. But every once in a while, I'll look something up. Well, last night I decided to look for a couple of Lizzie Kate kits called Joe Snow and Sally Snow that I look for periodically. No go for the Snows (and so it goes) so I decided to look for a couple of Just Nan kits I missed out on. They were both exclusives for The Silver Needle in Tulsa OK...one is called 20 Flowers, and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the other one but it is a companion to the 20 Flowers one. Someone on the 123 Stitch board had these listed not too long ago, but they were sadly overpriced, and there was no way I could afford them. Well, no go on finding them either, but guess what I DID find?!

Just Nan Snowflower Lace
This was a class project from years ago, and I looked for it off and on forever on Ebay and never found it. So I gave up. Last night when I was looking for the 20 Flowers piece, I saw it listed! I yelled loudly enough that one of the dogs came to investigate in case this was the kind of excitement that might lead to me feeling generous with the Milk Bones. The opening bid was $8.55 and so I bid on it and won it tonight for the original bid!!!!! OH I'm excited!!! It said that the porcelain rose button is included although the rest of the embellishment pack is not...but I can always buy the beads and any other special stuff so this is not a problem.
There was a round of Alpo Snaps on the house tonight!
