I got the binding on the hands quilt (the one for the senior home) and then when I went to hand stitch the binding down - I could NOT find my little "chatelaine" with the thimbles, needles and scissors. I could not find it anywhere - ripped the room apart - well almost. I was FRUSTRATED. Never mind the fact that I have LOTS of other needles and I had the thread and the clips for the binding. Oh no - I NEEDED that little thing.
And I figured the darn thing was with the last project that I worked on. But WHAT was that?????? I think I am still tired from the weekend and my brain wasn't processing properly!!!
Then I decided since I was in a search mode I would look for the small case that I am missing for my bike. Couldn't find the case and I ripped the garage apart.
Couldn't find the chatelaine so after dinner - loaded up a new audio book and dug out a new needle and started to stitch. Got about half the binding done. The sleeve is now on and waiting for hand stitching. I am dropping it off at the school today so they can glue the buttons on - then I will finish the binding tonight. It will be presented tomorrow.
Tired and went to bed.
at 4:55 AM - I woke up with a start. I remembered what the last project I was working on. Hmmmm - that is a start. Came down stairs and looked in the project box. Nope not in that project box - oh yes - I put everything in a ziploc bag. Where is the bag? Ah - yes right here and VOILA - there is the chatelaine thing. God - I HATE when I waste time like that. The darn quilt could have been DONE by now.
|Can you see it????? Nope - neither could I!!|
|How about now?????|
|And now????? Note that the bag was UPSIDE down in the box so the blue thing was NOT visible.|
|My missing blue thing!!!!|
I feel better already.
The bike bag - well I think that is gone. I did find the packaging from it so I hope that I can get the EXACT same thing - it was perfect and if I find the other one - I'll put it on one of the other bikes. It is a very valuable little bag and I missed it greatly this past trip. It is great to not have so much in your pockets as I kept having to empty the pockets to find the stuff that was in there!!!!
Oh yes - want to see more about my recent Zentangles class including a picture of me?????
Check it out!!!!!
Oh yes - yesterday was Monday and the girls were in full swing again. Here is some show n tell.....
