Do you ever turn your back and something that was right there is now gone? I’m bad about walking off with something in my hand, setting it down and then forgetting where I put it but last night I was going to work on my February UFO. I pulled the blocks and counted them and I had 15. I thought I had more but I didn’t. A 3 block x 5 block setting would have to do because I wasn’t making more blocks. I put the 15 blocks up on the design wall and went to draw out a design in Electric Quilt. Once I had my design, I pulled the blocks off the design wall in order to re-arrange them. This is what I came up with but . . there’s one missing!
Where is that block? I had only taken 3 steps from the design wall to the computer. It couldn’t be far! I searched. I dug through piles of other “stuff”. I disturbed Speck. His pillow and quilt are right under the design wall. Maybe the missing block fell off and he was laying on it or it got wrapped up in his quilt. Nope . . not there.
The last thing I wanted to do was make another block but I did and then . .
I realized I had put the blocks back up on the design wall in a 4 x 4 block setting so I would need 16 blocks instead of 15 blocks and one wasn’t missing at all!
The only thing missing around here seems to be my brain! The extra block will not be used. I like my 3 x 5 block setting. I hate that I wasted so much time looking for the block that wasn’t even lost.
Do you ever do things like that?
