The Case of the Missing WIP

Sorry for not posting for a while - a few days after my last post I learnt that my nan had passed away. She was 94 years old and hadn't been well for the past few months so it was her time to go but still, it is sad.

I still haven't been able to settle with my stitching - managed a few stitches in Arabian Woman but then I wasn't really enjoying it, so I moved on to Night for a bit. Have put a few stitches in here and there but nothing worth taking a pic of.

I was scheduled to go on a field trip with DD's class today but it was cancelled at the last minute (probably due to the rain we had this morning) so I found myself with a free day. I had a strong desire to stitch on An Open Heart (Drawn Thread) and since it is the first time in ages that I actually wanted to stitch, I set about locating said WIP.

Well, do you think I can find it?! I have searched high and low and so far it is nowhere to be found! It has to be in this house somewhere (at least I hope it is!) but it is not where I thought it was. I have a box next to my stitching chair that contains four or five WIPs that I actively work on (when I'm stitching that is!) - that seems to be as many as I can handle at the one time. The rest of my my projects/stash are stored in a cupboard downstairs along with fabric and threads. I also have a couple of projects in the wardrobe (one of my "overflow" cupboards) in the guest bedroom and a couple in the bottom of the wardrobe in the master bedroom. I also have a suitcase full (mostly of yarn) on top of the wardrobe in the guest room. I have looked in all of these places and still no AOH. I've just gone through my box and the cupboards downstairs again, pulled everything out, looked in pattern folders, fabric boxes (discovered I have quite a bit of fabric!!!), the suitcase, even behind the robe and cupboard, still with no luck. As soon as I finish here I will head upstairs and go through my wardrobe again but I am at a loss as to where else it could be. It is a mystery, and a little disconcerting!

Hopefully I will be able to report in my next post that I've found it ... fingers (or toes) crossed!

So sorry for your loss, Mel.

Hope an Open heart shows up soon.

Mel, I am so sorry that you have lost your Nan. It must be hard being so far away from everyone.
