I've been working on a sneaky quilt. I haven't talked about it because I'm not sure if the recipient reads my blog .. and I can't exactly ask, can I? :-)
I found the perfect, I mean .. PERFECT fabric for the borders. I figured out how to use the border fabric effectively with the rest of the top that has already been made.
Serendipitously, I had a day where I could work on the borders without interruption.
I can NOT find the border fabric. Absolutely astounding. How could I *possibly* lose fabric? I know I had it fairly recently because I had to measure it in order to figure out how to use the limited amount I had with the top that I had. I even drew out the schematic .. so I *know* I had the fabric recently.
And now I can't find it. Oh. My. Gosh. I can't believe this.
It's not with the top. It's not with the batting because I haven't pulled that yet. I have looked everywhere it should be. I have looked everywhere it shouldn't be. I have looked again. As I have always advised my daughters, I even looked UNDER things and PICKED THINGS UP and rifled through piles. It's not there.
Well, it's obviously SOMEWHERE. I have outdone myself in stashing this fabric in a Safe Place.
Gosh, I hate Safe Places. ::sigh::
(aside: Nell .. this is not your quilt! You may rest assured all of your pieces are safe.)
