I just had one of those 'when you are looking for something else and find something that you knew you had and have been looking for for a lonnnngggg time' events just a few minutes ago...

I was looking for a gift box for a wedding present....did not find the right size...But did find my collection of Invisfil bobbins and threads that I have been looking for for over a year! One of my sewing buddies and I bought two each of the 6 spool collections (they were pretty pricey even when we bought them a number of years ago.) Two boxes are pastels, two boxes are jewel tones. She took all of them and ran bobbins off each one...so each of us have half a spool of the ones we bought and a bobbin of the ones we didn't. Cannot believe where they were...how does that happen?!! Had my Sewline glue pen and my Bohin fabric pencils in there too. I must have been doing some applique project and put all the tools in the bag, then stuffed the bag in my gift bag storage. What possessed me to put it there, we will never know.

Cannot tell you how many times I went thru all my project bags and all the nooks and crannies in my sewing room, looking for them.

I know how you feel.  While straightening up my sewing room before Cathy came, I came across the heart blocks that I made for you and thought I had sent.

I have found that the deal when finding something in a weird place is that, at that specific instant, you got interrupted while doing your normal stuff.  The stuff that you had in your hand inadvertently gets put in a different spot but you have absolutely NO idea that you actually did it .... so you have no memory of putting there.  It is truly effectively "lost" ... until you have a need to go looking in that different spot.  :-)

she is looking for occupational therapy, pediatric clinical setting.

I love it when I finally find something long lost.

My DD is a  physical therapist.  I don't think yours will have any trouble finding a job.

Under the heading of "small world", I was reading through DD's offer letter.  Got to the bottom and read the name of the HR person.  She used to work for me as a gift certificate clerk 17 years ago.

Glad you were able to help your Mom and that she is doing well.  She's lucky to have you there.

Happy to hear that DJ is adjusting to Huntsville and now has the company of a puppy.  He's cute but they can limit your freedom.  Did you have pets when he was young or is this his first experience?  Merlin is a cute.  Does he know how big he will get?

I have had trouble posting and feel lucky that the forum will allow me to do so today.  Hard to read posts and not be able to respond.

It has been very quiet around here!

im no help either.  I haven’t even been checking very often.   But now I have tons of time….that is if I have energy.

my family is in ND for family reunion that we helped get started and organized.  But, we are stuck in an air b n b with Covid!  Darn stuff!  Only good thing is they stop by with food.

four adults hanging out in 4 rooms.  Sigh.
