I have to share this because its kind of sweet. And I swear it at least somewhat relates to quilting.
Yesterday was Crapfest '11. I withdrew money from the ATM and I was trying to pry my purse open when the money got sucked back into the machine. Later found that concert tickets to go see my favorite band in the entire world (see avatar) cost twice as much as listed because the venue's website failed to mention the hidden fees until the very end. And work made me zone the soup isle, the worst isle to work. And found the cage in the backroom with the video games had exploded because my co-workers had just shoved the extra games instead of organzing them (I have the boxes for a reason!)
But the worst part of my day was realizing I had lost the most important part my boyfriend's birthday gift. When we started going out he had this coral bead necklace and one day it broke. So I decided his present would be a replacement necklace and bought all the supplies for it. The piece I had lost was the silver triangular Celtic knot shaped pendant. Oh, and the lobster clasp with the heart design on the base, but I was more concerned about the pendant.
It was too late to order another one because it wouldn't get here before his birthday on Tuesday (yeah, I waited until the last minute to assemble his present). So I tore my room apart looking for it. I remember hiding it in a spot that I would remember, but he wouldn't find it. Think I could remember what that spot was? Of course not. After about two hours and finding everything else I had been looking for and lots of change I gave up, feeling like the worst girlfriend in the world. At least my room is a little bit cleaner.
I woke up this morning and suddenly I remembered where it was. The only place I hadn't thought to look. Sure enough when I looked it was there along with the clasp.
My "someplace I'd remember, but Joe won't look" spot? My fabric stash! Not just any part of the fabric stash. It was wedged between all the green fabrics I got for the clover quilt I am planning on making for Joe (hopefully for Christmas). Thus a place I'd remember, but Joe wouldn't look. :)
