So Close… Yet So Far!!

Has this ever happen to you? You put something important in a special place, but could not remember what that special place is…. Well, that is exactly what happened to me here!!!!! I was so happy that I finished all the hand quilting, and have everything ready for the binding, even made a quilt tag that was going to go with it.

But where did I put that roll of binding?! I had it cut and rolled before our move back to Taiwan because it’s easier to store. I even remember unpacking it and put it at a special place for ease access, but now I can’t remember just where that special place is…. I went through all the shelves and drawers that I put my craft things and couldn’t find it. So much for being organized!!! After two days of digging through all my stuff, I am giving up. I’ll just have to put it aside for now and hope that the binding will turn up when I least expected. So here is my quilt minus the binding….

Moving on to my next project – the Mary Wigham Sampler!!!! Another UFO for such a long time!!! I decided to pick it up again, because I want to finish all my UFOs before starting on a new project again. Besides, I’m quite enjoying Mary’s company~ The last time I’ve worked on this was on September 30,2011!! It has waited long enough, won’t you say?!

  1. So frustrating to not find that binding yet. Well, I always go back, back, back in my mind over it. And pray. It will show up. What a great quilt. I like the colors you chose on Mary.

  2. Hope you find the binding soon! You're definitely not the only one who has done that.....the lost always turns up, it just takes time. Your quilt is beautiful.

  3. Safe places - they're funny places in that they often stay so very very safe. I have a pair of Dovo scissors in my safe place!

    Congratulations on your beautiful almost finished quilt. Mary is looking good too!

  4. A truly lovely quilt, and beautiful stitching on MW - great going.

  9. Oh, your quilt is so very lovely! I admire you for all that wonderful hand stitching and finishing it (you'll find the binding I'm sure!!). Such a pretty pattern and I do admire your color choices. Beautiful! Yes, I can identify- my Mary Wigham Sampler has been sitting in my UFO bag since 2011 as well! Perhaps I should get mine out, too!

  10. Theresa, I wish you to find your binding soon! The same happens to me quite often too! I hide something important and forget the place :-)) Your Mary Wigham Sampler is magnificent!
