But I clicked and I clicked, and this quilt depicting the Sequoias kept speaking to me. I clicked on the enlargement. I clicked on "what you can't see on the computer." I clicked on the artist's name. wow. I've seen her work in person, and I really like it. I clicked on submit bid, and five minutes later received a congratulatory message.
Now I've got two things at the top of my to-do list. 1) finish quilting the latest quilt-for-hire, so that I can afford these repeated indulgences; and 2) hide my computer during stage 3 of the auction. There are a number of quilts in that section that I love, and if my self-control continues to be MIA, my checkbook will REALLY be in trouble...
