    The best kind of find is when you discover a box you packed almost 5 years ago with all of your long lost items for sewing which include 20 years worth of collecting patches from all your travels, Your DMIL original mini-crochet needles that she made hundreds of doilies and gifts with, all of your vintage button collection, your hand-quilting metal thingamajig that makes your finger not hurt when you weave the needle in and out, hundreds of brand new sewing needles of every kind, all of your metal snaps, hook-n-eyes and all the rest of those goodies and all the velcro you have needed for the past year for your projects. It was a very good day indeed.

    Good for you! I love when this happens. I am sorting through years of patterns, books and magazines and have located these hidden treasures as well as sewing supplies.

    Hecka FAR OUT!!! I am so happy. I thought when we moved from Alaska a few of my boxes were lost. Thank Goodness I got to the last few boxes from the move. It only took me almost 4 years of living in WA to find it all. I am so happy and so relieved. Some of my prized goodies are in here.

    I have had similar finds although not after 5 years. I love it when the lost is found!

    I feel like dancing around the room throwing fabric up into the air and singing a little song. I just don't want to refold the fabric. LOL

    lol....maybe you could just throw a little bit of fabric around while you dance!!! Glad you found it all. I haven't moved in a long time, but I always lost boxes with every move. They never showed up...huh...someone got my junk...haha.
