200408catshapedrug.jpg I bid on a cute cat-shaped crocheted rug pattern. I searched through Google to see whether I could find it somewhere else online. No luck. Since the pattern is unusual and cute, I bid up to $14.77 for it - and was outbid. I got a Second Chance offer at the price of my last bid. I thought about it for 10 minutes and then accepted the offer. What can I say? I could have probably figured out my own pattern for a cat-shaped rug based on the image on the auction page... I don't have a "place" in the house for a cat-shaped rug or blanket... But, I wanted the pattern...and I've spent more than $15.00 on meals, on fancy coffee, on things that aren't tangible and don't last long...so I bought it!

Total auctions won so far: 34
Total spent so far (not including shipping): $106.64
Some are multiple books, some single patterns...too many to total!

Currently watching: 19 auctions
Currently bidding: 1 auction

Since Sunday, I've been working on a loudly colorful (greens, oranges, red, black) lap blanket and am going to dutifully finish it before diving into a project from a new pattern book.
