I have a *sniff sniff* ... code....
Now, I am not sure if it's the foggy brain, or the general "unorganized state" of my sewing room but I have lost a gold tin can that my sister gave me last Xmas (or birthday). In it was a large number of hexagon cut pieces of fabric. Each bit of fabric is cut around a particular print that highlights something interesting (to a kid and a grown up) and its the makings of an "I spy" quilt that I will start for Jack so that he will enjoy it maybe in the spring.
My sister has made a few of these, and I even made one years and years ago but not this detailed. I am excited to start working on one for Jack that is personalized to the things he likes.
Problem is... I can't find the Gold Tin... and the really sad part it.... its the second time I have lost it! When Gail needed a few extra shapes for a BIG project she is working on and I knew that I wouldn't be using all the pinks and barbies and girlie things in my I spy.. so I told her I would sort through my tin. Well.... after a month of searching.. I found it... I sorted it out... and I tucked it away.
So, tonight.. with a pounding head, a dry dry mouth... a painful cough and flannel pyjamas on... I am tearing my house apart to look for the tin again!
I will keep you posted...
