I’m absolutely miserable.
My beautiful ScrapHappy project, the hexie quilt I’m hand stitching for Days for Girls, is lost. Gone.
Last weekend I worked on it at the sewing group as usual, planning new sections to be added. At the end of the session, as always, I folded and rolled it up and put it in my work basket, and carried it around the corner to where I’d parked my car. I had burned myself badly on a mug of boiling hot tea, and was distracted and in pain. I put the basket away in its usual place when I got home and dealt with the burn.
This morning, when I got the basket out, the rolled up work wasn’t there. I searched around the house, I searched the car, and concluded I’d left it at the sewing group after all. I was wrong. It wasn’t there, no-one had seen it. Everyone there knows I’m making it and would have got in touch if they’d found it.
The Husband is posting a photo on his FaceBook account and asking for information. The ladies at Days for Girls will also post about it on FB. I’m not on FB myself, so I’ll have to rely on them. Does anyone know, is there a way to see if anyone’s put up a photo of it if they found it? I’ve no idea how FB works, but if anyone has a suggestion, do get in touch.
I think probably only someone who sews or quilts would appreciate what it was worth, so my great fear is that it’s ended up in a dustbin somewhere. I asked around in the nearby shops, but no joy.
All I can do is cross my fingers, wipe my eyes, blow my nose and hope.
