Lost and found

Last year, I think it was last year or maybe a year before, I was desperately looking for a chart with three  kings I have seen on someones blog. First I just wanted to have it but after I couldn't find it became an obsession until I got it. It arrived in a mail safely but it was after Christmas already and, I guess, I was in a Easter or Summer mood ... until yesterday ... Out of a blue I decided to stitch that piece and ... I couldn't find that darn chart anywhere.  I know I have it, I can see it in my mind's eye, but where the heck I put it?!? I checked all my binders, draws, craft cabinet... no luck. Wait a minute - I have some stuff in boxes! Remember, I was getting ready to move to Ontario? I started to pack some things and my stash was one of these things... two hours later, in the LAST box - I found it!!!!
And my fingers start to itch and my head start to spin... the model looks great but is a little to black and a little to grey... So I dived to stash again and I found a lovely golden evenweave fabric and the floss (Raven from Carrie's Creation and Straw Bonnet from The Gentle Art. There! I have a new start


So long my friends,
Evalina

PS: Do not forget to check Nancy's blog, she has another awesome giveaway for all 500 yards of floss!!! And please do not forget to tell her that I have sent you :)

  1. Isn't it funny how that happens? You're not the only one it's happened to either! I know I have this chart I'd been searching for for years... but I couldn't find it for ages because I hadn't put it away properly. LOL

  3. My dad always said it would be in the last place you looked. When I was little, that was mind boggling profound.

  14. Yay! So glad you found the chart you wanted to stitch Evalina. It's a beautiful one too. I love the contrast of the black on the cream. It'll be stunning once complete.

  15. I seem to remember you asking about this chart! It does look great, I love silhouette designs. But I would have to add some commas in the text!
