Happy Dance with me

Longtime followers of this blog may remember how I misplaced my kitted up PS Autumn Winds. I had kitted it with Vikki Clayton silks, and I loved it, so this was a pretty worrisome loss for me. I figured I hadn't truly "lost" it, I figured I just stuck it in a box, and it would turn up.

Well, y'all, it did.

I was getting ready for bed last night, and I opened my painted chest of WIPs, and it was in there. I don't know how it got there. I have looked in that chest several times for it, and it was not there. I assure you, it was not in there. That was the first place I looked, and it was not there.

The twins were on the bed and they watched me Snoopy-style happy dance. I assure you, they were impressed. Jazz hands played a prominent role. I think a pas-de-chat occurred, perhaps a tour jete, I'm not sure. I was in a whir of cold-induced haze, joy that I had managed to fix my error of the previous evening, and incredulity that I had found this chart.

I'm cuddling it now. I may fondle silks at lunch.

I did break down and bought some Oops packs from Dinky Dyes. One is for my Secret Sister--I love grab bags, and these are so fun to open, such a nice mix of perles and silks and cottons. The threads I bought for myself are from the animals for my birthday; they apologized for not going all out and ordering from England, as is their usual way of purchasing my birthday presents, but they said times were hard on the boulevard, and the companion animal field is not a particularly lucrative one financially, so these were all they could get. Which is fine, I like em just fine. But I can't open them til my birthday. Lets see if I hold out that long.

Ooooh... Rachel, maybe you have a ghost! Call TAPS. And let me know when they're supposed to show up, so I can come drool on Jason. ;)

Oh, wait -- TAPS is going to be in my neck of the woods for the Live Halloween special. I'll do some Jason-drooling then, too! WOOHOO!

Seriously... glad you found your lost chart! It must have been something in the air last night: I've been in *desperate* search mode for my "Golden Dreams" kit for more than a week now, and guess what I finally found last night! YES!

There must be something with animals and England. My two labs (my first, now-heavenly angel, and my second, currently earthbound, angel) BOTH love(d) to buy me stitchy stuff from England.

I never told the rest of the human family, but my two girls ALWAYS got/get me the best gifts. :)

LOL! Rachel, you are too funny :o) WHERE did you get the Oops grab bags???? Or should I say, where did the kids get them?

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
