Lost and Found Again

I knew I had more midgets than the ones on the wall.  I worked hard to average one per week for the last two years, yet when I went to hang them up, there were only 99.  Today I was digging through my basket of blocks in waiting to find another applique block to take to gymnastics tomorrow.  Low and behold, there were three finished blocks hiding amongst the patterns and fabrics in page protectors!  They were done out of order because they were hand sewn.  Those get done on long car trips and such. Other than those blocks I have been working in order.  It is easier than choosing and procrastinating.  The blue one in the middle is number 119 and it might be one of my overall favorites.  I'll get these framed up and let them join the others on the wall.  Until then, it looks like #81 needs some applique, so I'll get that one ready to go tonight.  Sydney has been begging for gymnastics since one of our neighbors signed up last month.  I voted no, but I guess I lost, because we start tomorrow.  Kurt will be at football with Ryan which leaves nobody open to go the the 6th grade open house.   Can't be everywhere at once though, so I'll just take a deep breath and move on with things.  Happy humpday to you all.  Congratulations on making it to the downhill side of the workweek.

The blue one looks like fun - was it pieced or appliqued? I admire your resolve to stick with the project!

Glad you found them. It must have been so frustrating for you.

Yeah!!! Isn't it a joy to find something that was lost and missed? I know that I have lost things and never even missed them until they were found again. But when I realize something is lost and miss it terribly, it is a great joy to find it again. I agree with you on your middle block - it's very unique :*)

So glad you found them! That middle one looks familiar.... There seem to be some blocks that are similar in the series. I do love it though.
