A briefer spending spree


Yikes! During the past 2 weeks, I was on another spending spree - it lasted much less time than the previous one! These are my new purchases from eBay, some haven't arrived yet:

  • 24 Blocks on a Roll
  • 101 Crochet Edgings
  • Annie's Mile-A-Minute Baby Afghans
  • Christmas Spirit Afghans (tree, bell, santa, candy cane, snowman, wreath patterns with granny squares)
  • Color-Bright Creatures Animal Afghans (turtles, lions, frogs, dogs, bears, pigs, birds)
  • Holiday Afghans II (Valentines (hearts), St. Patrick's Day (shamrocks), Easter (bunnies), 4th of July (Uncle Sam), Halloween (ghosts), Thanksgiving (turkeys), Christmas (santa))
  • Holiday Door Hangers (Valentines (heart), St. Patrick's Day (leprechaun), Easter (bunny), 4th of July (American flag), Halloween (ghost), Thanksgiving (turkey), Christmas (snowman, santa claus, reindeer))
  • Hot Stuff for the Holidays (hot pads and coasters: Valentines (heart), St. Patrick's Day (shamrock), Easter (bunny), 4th of July (American flag), Halloween (pumpkin), Christmas (tree))
  • How to Crochet on a Roll
  • Nicholas's Dinosaur (stuffed)
  • Rag Menagerie (stuffed turtle, cat, dog, bunny, bear, mouse)
  • Scripture Afghan (24 pattern stitches)
  • Skirting the Tree
  • Snug as a Bug Baby Afghans
  • Trendsetting Totes

In addition, a few days ago I splurged on the following items from Annie's Attic, mostly a variety of hooks so I could do some different types of crocheting:

  • Holiday Afghans (Valentines (hearts), St. Patrick's Day (shamrocks), Easter (bunnies), 4th of July (American flag), Halloween (pumpkins), Thanksgiving (turkeys), Christmas (wreaths))
  • 2 more 12-packs of 12-inch bookkeeper tabs (for pattern book organization)
  • Cro-Tat with Yarn Master Hook Set (sizes G and H), instructions, 5 patterns
  • Cro-Tatting Hook (for thread; size not specified)
  • Crochet on a Roll Hooks (sizes F, G, H)
  • Crochenit Cable Hook (size M)
  • Swivel Hook (size K)

I feel "done"...again.
