Friken fraken $()%*)#(*#($*%#*( ........!

Remember Old Samity Sam?! Perhaps I'm dating myself but......

I have been patient, extremely patient but now it's just too much! What you might ask? Well.....

Did I ever mention that I have Sprites in my home? YES, I do!!!! Oh.... and they have been busy! Let me tell you.....

For the past couple of months, I have been unable to locate my favourite thimble. You know, the thimble I've had since I begin quilting, made of gold and silver. My special one! If that wasn't enough, pieces from my thread attachment are still missing. Seam rippers have disappeared..... Yes, it's been a nightmare in my home and now...... I cannot seem to find the yardage I washed for the Women of Influence BOM!

I'm at a loss! Perhaps Yulelads from Iceland have invaded my home. They found it more lucrative to take quilting items as opposed to sausages and candles! lol

If anyone knows where my special thimble is or anything else, please let me know!

On the quilting front, I have completed a wall hanging.

This is Liberty Eagle, a pattern from Jo Morton.

The Shoppe received the Bonnie Blue America line by Marcus Brothers and I just had to make this quilt!

Aside from pulling my hair and cleaning my sewing room in the hopes of finding my things, not much has been going on!

The weather in September has just been gorgeous, which is nice given that we really didn't have a summer. The leaves have started to turn their autumn shades! It's beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to let me know if you find my thimble and other things! Cheers!

I will never get the hang of a thimble or anything else on my fingers;) I do love that quilt and the fabrics, beautiful piece.

Carole, the quilt is gorgeous!
I hope you find the missing stuff ... surely your hubby hasn't secretly taken up quilting ... ha ha

I will let you know if the things you miss will turn up in December when the Yulelads come to town :) The quilt is beautiful and so well done, the pattern in the fabric is so straight!

Hey, maybe your thimble has run off with my table runner! It's been missing for 2 1/2 years -- it's not exactly something so small that it would run off by itself??? If you find them, let me know. LOVE that pretty quilt!

So frustrating when you can't find something. If they happen to pass through Idaho on their escape journey, I will let you know. lol

Love, Love, Love the quilt! Beautiful job!

I'm sorry, I don't have the power to guess where your treasures are...
The quilt is beautiful!

Love the quilt. You call the sprites, I call them grandchildren. My grands seem to think if the most fun to gather up items in my sewing room and scatter them throughout the house.

Shasta said...

Wow that is a beautiful quilt! Hope your supplies turn up!

Just wanted to drop you a line saying that my girlfriend and I really enjoyed our two stops at your shop yesterday.

Everything looks wonderful and we'll definitely be back. Love your fabric collections and your Liberty Eagle wall hanging is beautiful.

I blogged about your shop today. Stop by and have a look.

I'll have to have a look behind my dresser. Occasionally, I watch things of mine roll off the back of it, whereupon they disappear and are never seen again. But I find things back there no one in our has has ever seen before. Dinky cars, brown lipstick, a single knitting needle, a mustache comb.

I'll see if your thimble is back there!

;)

Your quilt is wonderful! You did a marvelous job on it. Your things will turn up one of these days, but how frustrating in the meantime! Hope its sooner rather than later...

Sherry said...

Your quilt is beautiful! I love the various reds in the stripes. I am interested in opening my own quilt shop. I have a Masters degree in Nursing, but it's not as much fun as quilting. Any suggestions on how to get started?

Great finish!

I LOVE that sample you made. It's the cutest. Great job. I'm sorry you've lost your stuff. Hope it turns up soon.
