When I was at the Road to California show in 2008, the booth I was in had the cutest little quilt for a little boy. My niece had just had a baby boy and I really wanted to get that kit but it went like hot cakes! Before I got a chance to get one, it was gone. In April, I ended up getting the kit but never got around to making it. When we were back in Kentucky last September, I bought some backing fabric from my favorite shop there, Village Mercantile. After making the quilts for my niece’s daughters a few months ago, I decided to go ahead and sew up the kit for Keaton. But . . where was it? I searched my sewing room. I had the backing fabric, but not the kit. I searched upstairs. I couldn’t even remember the last time I had seen it. I searched some more. I finally gave up. I couldn’t remember how much I had paid for the kit but figured I’d just buy another one. I didn’t want to take quilts to the girls and not have anything for Keaton.
Yesterday I was cleaning my car. In the back, there’s a piece of carpet that just lays on top of what is a picnic table that comes out. Under that table is a big bowl shaped thing that is supposed to be a cooler. This is all built in to the car . . and we’ve never used that bowl as a cooler, nor have we used the picnic table that folds out but that bowl is great for storing (or losing) things. Guess what was in there! Yep . . my kit!
I guess it never made it into the house. I’m so glad to have found it. I’ll get it made up next week and then I’ll have quilts for all of Kristy’s kids when I see them.
