    Smile A New Quilt Found!!!!

    About 6 years ago, while I was recuperating from my hysterectomy, I embroidered 12 light house quilt squares. I finally got around to learning to quilt about 2 years ago but I couldn't find my lighthouses to save my life. Well, I've been doing some heavy duty cleaning to get ready for out of town guests coming to my son's wedding in March. Guess what I found in a bag with some other crafts!! Yep- the lighthouse squares! I'm so excited, but I don't dare start a new project until after the wedding!!!LOL

    Glad you found them. Just make sure you don't loose them while preparing for your son's wedding. Put them someplace you will definitely find them after the wedding.

    I'd love to see them...after you have some free time, of course. I love lighthouses and I love embroidery.

    Oh I love when this happens -- you stumble across something wonderful you forgot you ever had! This just happened to me when I cleaned out my quilt room last week. I found some quilt blocks I made years ago just sitting in a box waiting for me to discover them again. It's just so much fun to find these things . . .

    What a wonderful find. Put them in a box with fabric for the quilt. Label it. Put it where you won't forget it! Then when you have time enjoy it! Luann

    That's just super! Unless you have other plans for them, you could justify getting into this project right away "as a wedding gift"! Signed: "Enabler"

    Glad you found them, when that happens to be it's like finding buried treasure, so congratulations on finding the quilt squares, especially since you embroidered them, I'm sure they are quite beautiful.

    I love when I find things I forgot about and have a renewed desire to finish them.
