Things get stuck in the most unlikely places and are never seen again. It’s always so exciting when I find something that’s been lost, especially those things I’ve given up searching for.
This morning I was wanting to make some concoctions and needed a few things that were in a big tote in an extra bedroom. I knew where they were .. thanks to my spreadsheet! Retrieved the things I needed and as I was walking out of the room, there was a tote sitting there with no number on it. I thought . . I wonder what’s in there.
Ahh . . the motherlode of lost treasures. There was a grocery sack in there with all kinds of unrelated items in it.
This may not seem like a big deal unless you have a favorite thimble! I have had this one forever. I bought two more just like it but they weren’t really just like it. They fit a bit differently so this one is still my favorite. It’s been a long time since I saw it . . at least a couple of years.
I have several sets of measuring spoons but this one is my favorite. I don’t like plastic measuring spoons and I don’t like the ones that are more flat and shallow. I like these because they’re deep and to me, they’re easier to use. I had given up on finding them.
I was sewing on something! My guess is that wherever I went, I took something to sew and it was already pinned but I didn’t have a pin cushion so I put the pins in a paper towel as I took them out.
Last was this sock needle set. I have a couple of the needles from this set that were in socks that I’m still using. The orange socks are one that’s on these needles. I’ve almost ordered another set several times because I thought this little set was gone forever, but the set is expensive so I held off.
A plastic sack with straight pins, thimble, measuring spoons and a set of knitting needles. A weird combination but it made me happy to find them all. Well, the straight pins weren’t a big thrill but everything else was.
