Please bear with me as I write this post. I'm so frustrated right now and extremely disappointed with myself. For the past six or seven weeks I have been working on this embroidery project. It's something I pick up when I'm relaxing or take with me to work on when I ride in the car. It's a project that was nearing completion. I had only one or two more things to outline and the bird's feet and beaks to stitch. Somewhere and somehow I have lost my project. I've searched the house over, checked the vehicles, called friends --- all to no avail. I remember I had it last when I took my son to an immediate care clinic last week. I think I left it under my chair in the waiting room. I've called them but it's not in their lost and found. It's possible that it will show up yet --- or that some other patient took the opportunity to take my project home with them for their use. After all, it was nearly complete. I have the mate for this pillowcase here at home --- with no instructions or color chart. My threads, good hoop, special needles, and pin holder are also lost. And I'm feeling lost as well! I know it's a very small thing, but it's just ruined my day! I know that there are many much bigger problems in this world --- and I will get over it --- but isn't it just so frustrating when a little carelessness can cause such calamity?
