Where Is It?

I know I made it, I know it's here somewhere.  But where?  That is the $100,000 question.  Okay, so maybe it's not really worth that much, but I need it, I want it, NOW.

I'm talking about a piece of blue binding that I made some time last year, for a UFO that is finally getting the border quilted.  arg!  Where is it?  It used to hang on my design wall, until we got the carpet and I took everything down.  I have no idea where I put it.  oh wait.  Maybe it's in that one place where I put the buttons that held me up for 2 days while I hunted them down.  I'll have to remember to check there.

Scattered.  Everything is scattered.

I went to three guild meetings in two days.  Valley Oak, Common Threads, and Kings River all met.  I stopped by to remind them that the postmark deadline for Best of the Valley entries is coming up soon, on February 22.

And that's why I need my binding. 

Today I had 2 hours.  Should I begin the quilting of one quilt?  Or finish the borders of another quilt?  I went after the borders, am halfway around.  When I finish, I will need the binding.  I was actually thinking of attaching part of the binding now, so I could start some of the handwork.  oh well.  That didn't happen.  Instead, I have to hunt it down.  That elusive binding!

I've also been filling out my entry forms.  I thought I was much later than last year, but apparently I'm a day ahead.  Last year I filled out my entries on Feb. 10.  :)  I have two quilts to finish (hurry, hurry!), but even if I don't?  I found two other quilts that I'd forgotten about.  They are now officially being submitted for consideration.

How about you?  Have you filled out your forms?  Taken the pictures?  Mailed your entries?

The clock is ticking, and time is running out.

Next post?  Hopefully something will be FINISHED, and supply you with picture proof.  Goals are good!

So annoying losing things. Left my cell phone at work over the three day weekend. Or at least I think I did. No way to check until Tuesday. Good thing I am not joined at the hip to that thing.

Don't worry about my entry. It will be arriving shortly.
