I haven't actually been quilting today...but did spend time in my sewing room...looking for a lost Inktense pencil ...Cherry Red...

I KNOW I had it when I came home from Road to CA...and I am pretty sure I had it at Retreat..but after idea where it wandered off to......

I did find some stuff in my sewing room that I thought I had lost for sure...a small pincushion and a pair of embroidery scissors....and a spare one of the Comfort Thimbles!

I looked practically EVERYWHERE for that dang pencil....

HAH!! I finally found it!! in the side pocket of a bag I have looked in a bunch of times...this time I was 'feeling' for a pencil, not just peering in!

Now I can make my amaryllis bud!!

Nothingto motivate you to search when that item is the one thing you need. Been there done that, and yes said item can be in a place you have already searched before.

when DD was home for her birthday last week we went by Hobby Lobby to get a couple of puzzles to play with while company was here (sewing room is guest room so no sewing).  While we were there I of course wanted to swing by the fabric section.  I wanted to get some more of the ABC fabric for borders.  DD decided she really like the same and wanted for a scrub top - her therapy kiddos will like the ABC's.  And we also found some more REALLY cute llama fabric (which she likes).    So this is what I worked on this weekend.  She'll be back home next week so I'll get her to model the finished product then.

Big congrats on finding that pen that was hiding so well!

You didn't happen to come across an errant basting gun during you exhaustive search efforts, did you?

Mine is MIA, and I've run out of places to look for the silly thing!unamused

oddly...if you find will be in the last place you think to look...

my DH said...'re-trace your steps'...HAHAHAHA...that would mean several months of back tracking!! 

maybe its a glitch in the universe...

I tried retracing my steps, but the problem is that I'd also have to retrace my DD's steps, as she used it, too.  No idea where to start with that!  LOL

Thanks for the tips, though!

I'd like the universe to get 'un-glitched' now.  We've already bought a backup baster, so I'm still hoping the original one will make a miraculous appearance. smirk

that is usually enough to make the errant item come hither!! Good Luck!

That lama fabric just makes me smile.
