Embroidery Calamity


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?

  4. Aw, I understand your frustration. I had a similar experience recently. I had made a little bag for my youngest with her initial on it--one of my favorite projects ever. It was the perfect size for a diaper or two and maybe a sippy cup. During our move it just disappeared! I keep hoping it will turn up under a car seat or in a last box somewhere, but I don't know...So sorry you lost your project--hope it turns up!

    I'm so sorry. It devastates me whenever I lose anything no matter how big or small. I always feel like the widow who lost her mite and will turn the world inside out looking.
    I have had great success in asking God to show me where it is. Have you tried?

  7. I am praying (right now) that it will be found...that God will help you find it and that you will see His hand in it.

  8. First, let me say that you post lovely photos on your blog. I enjoy them very much. The rose is beautiful.

    I was sorry to read about your lost project. I agree that it's very frustrating, especially since you had put so much time into it. I do hope you'll find it.

  15. Thank you for all your kind words. Unfortunately the embroidery project has still not been found. I called 'lost and found' at the medical clinic and it had not been turned in to them. I hope that whomever ends up with my pretty pillowcase enjoys it and cherishes it to some extent. That would make me happy.
