Giver's remorse

Back in 2013, I gave away these Santas that I had no plan to ever stitch.  Well guess who just bought some of them on Ebay?  Yep.  I have no idea how this brain works but I do know these designs have been on my mind for a few weeks.  Did I see them somewhere?  Nope.  Why did I start thinking about them?  Your guess is as good as mine and probably better.  They are pictured on what seems to be white Aida and look pixelated like bad digital reception on an old TeeVee.  But I am imagining them cleaned up and stitched on aged high count linen.  Maybe I'm wrong and I will never stitch them, but when something gnaws at me, I can't let it go.  Three leaflets for six fellows will arrive next week, they are not plentiful, and I did not see many of their other Santas offered.  No sense searching for more until I test my patience and vision on this purchase.

 
Thank you Carol for mentioning Log House in New Castle.  I will call to see if they are still open!  Their bio says they have been in business for 32 years and my SIL knew every place within 50 miles of here, so I am surprised I have never heard of it!  I wanted to get your opinion on the shop but you're no-reply.

Thanksgiving week.  Geez.  Seems like Fall has been a blur and I still have a lingering cold.  It spit snow this afternoon and while using an electric blower on the leaves, I had so many cord hangups, twists and trips, that my vocabulary turned very unpleasant.  Well, vile actually. 

Hope your week goes well!
Thanks for visiting.

These will be gorgeous "updated" to older style than was typical when they were designed. At least that's my thought: A couple of years ago, I bought these on eBay, too--got the collection one by one. Haven't done them yet, but I will! Can't wait to see yours! As soon as you get rid of something, you need it (well, some things).

I'm laughing at your post...but I'm mostly laughing or cursing at myself about the "repurchased" pattern escapade...I gave away a ton of Prairie Schooler patterns and even a couple of Good Huswif patterns...I have kicked myself everyday for it...especially the Good Huswif designs...stupid, stupid, stupid....

No wonder you thought of those Santas. They are quite beautiful. It seems like when we all get rid of something, that is just the next thing we want!! I have definately done that!

Madly: It’s amazing that these have hung around for so long I still have a few of these.
I have given away patterns and like you have bought a couple of the same that I gave away found of course on EBay

OK...after reading your post I immediately jumped on etsy and managed to find two of the leaflets. I definitely see the potential for them on linen, so now I can put off stitching them just like you!!! (My only redemption is that at least I didn't own them before!)

They are lovely. Look forward to seeing one stitched.

I've read or heard from a couple of people lately with giver's remorse. So far, I have one chart I'd like to have back and I'm considering repurchasing it.
