Lost Project


After working on my quilt room for 30 minutes a day I finally got to the point where I can see the floor and get the windows...quite and achievement. The bad news - in the move I seem to have lost a long term project, my hexegon quilt. I've gone through everything and the bag is nowhere to be found. The photo on the left was taken about 5 months ago and I have finished several more rows after that. The options are a) it is packed in a box labeled something totally wrong like gardening tools b) the bag was accidently thrown out either while packing or unpacking c) I left the bag in the hotel in Georgia d) the bag was put into storage and I will find it in 3 years when we return. I'm hoping for a or c but I'm not holding my breath. One more item to post in the perils of moving!

Yesterday I finally ventured out for a few hours. The bronchitis is still holding me back a bit but I was getting stir crazy. Also the sun was out and I'm learning to take advantage of it when that happens! Anyway, I went up to the village of Broadway to start my Christmas shopping and to visit yet another tea room! We forgot it is vacation week for school kids so the area was packed. Luckily we got a spot in the tearoom right away (when we left the que was out the door!) I had an amazingly good sandwich - whole wheat bread with warm sliced turkey and garlic cheese.

The roses are still out in my friends garden. She lives in a black and white thatched roof cottage. I love the house and the garden. DH loves the fact it is across the street from the pub! I love the period properties but had to be practical...there are a hundred tiny steps and wonky floorboards in her house...with my balance (or lack there-of) and poor eyesight I'd be in the hospital with a concussion in a week! So I get to visit the cute house and live in a practical one.

I'm sure the hexagon quilt will turn up. I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's in a mislabeled box. I know about searching all over tho. I can't find my medical records. Did I leave them with the orthopedist, did they get put in with my air freight shipment, or have I left them somewhere.... I don't know.

Moving is so hard. I will keep my fingers crossed for you finding your hexagon quilt right off.

I found more than one thing I was sure was permanently lost after moving last time -- unfortunately some were years in the finding! Hope your hexagons show up.

When I moved from Dallas to MS in 1986 I lost the last quilt my Granny made. It was about 2/3 finished hand-quilted when she gave it to me just after she went into the nursing home. I never saw it again so I'm sure it got left there somehow. I sure hope you find your hexagons!

Hope you find your quilt. I can't find my sketch book and that does not compare to lossing a quilt.

Hope you are feeling better!

Hope you get to feeling better soon.

I finaly have a minute to catch up on comments.

So thanks for catching us up on your adventure in England, so far.

I hope your quilt shows its face soon. Mostlikly it is just shy.
