Mystery #9 Kit on eBay UPDATED

Shimmering Silks, the ninth of Loretta's mystery designs, is up for sale on eBay as a complete kit.  The seller is a different name than the two charts that are also up for sale together this week.  The starting bid is $19.99 plus $3.25 extra to cover shipping.  All the threads, Congress cloth and beads are included in the sale.

As always, although I might know an eBay seller or they might have contributed photographs to the Loretta Spears Design Archive, I have no financial interest in any eBay sale.

If you would like to see how the piece looks at the end, here's the link.  Don't look if you want to be surprised!

UPDATE:  The auction for the full Shimmering Silks mystery kit is over, with a winning bid of $56.96 plus $3.25 in shipping.  Not a bad price for one of what I consider one of the prettiest mystery designs!

Repeat eBay Sale? UPDATED

The same two charts ("Medallions" and "Today is Someday") are up on eBay again, sold by the same seller.  I don't know if the buyer of last week's sale didn't pay up or if the seller is a shop with multiple copies of the charts.  The current price is $2.84 with $2.39 extra for shipping costs.

UPDATE:  This sale ended with a final bid of $10.49 with $2.39 in shipping.  That's not bad for two of the Needle Adventures charts from The Artists Collection.

Two New Needle Adventures Charts on eBay UPDATED

Yesterday I discovered an eBay auction for two of Loretta's Needle Adventures charts.  Today is Someday and Medallions are both for sale in the same auction.  The starting price is ninety-nine cents plus $2.39 in shipping, which is a very good price for two designs.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-2-Needle-Adventures-Needlepoint-Booklets-LORETTA-SPEARS-Medallion-Today-/350805960387?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51adaa26c3

As always, although I might know the seller of Loretta's designs, I have no financial interest in any eBay sales.  Hope these two charts go home with a fan of Loretta Spears' designs or spark interest in her work from someone who is new to her charms.

UPDATE:  These two charts sold for $11.01 plus $2.39 shipping.  Congratulations to the winner!
