Last night after finishing the cross stitch project, I was going to load Pet All Dogs on the stitching frame.
You won’t be surprised but I couldn’t find the pattern! I could find the fabric and the floss, together in a bag, but no pattern. I searched everywhere. Then I decided I must have accidentally put it in a project bag with another pattern so I took out all the project bags and looked through them. Nope – not in there. Over and over I went back through every pattern. I looked under my chair. I looked in the breakfast room in case I took it in there to look at while eating. I looked in the room with the printer in case I took it in there to make my working copy. Nowhere! I decided I must have thrown it out accidentally. I had cleaned up a lot of padded envelopes that had been stacking up but I really thought I was careful to make sure I wasn’t throwing anything good out.
It was after I went to bed that I realized . . I took Pet All Dogs downstairs with me to use while making my project bag since it’s one of the larger patterns I have. I ran down there and there it was . . on top of the cutting table. Remember .. I had been working on that project bag when the window guy called and wanted to come over. I had to race upstairs, shower and get dressed and never thought about that pattern again. I waste more time being careless with where I put things and not being able to find them.
At some point today, I plan to get started stitching on this one.
