I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate it when I can't find a piece of embroidery I started. Usually when I need to put something away because of a guest coming (my sewing room doubles as the extra bedroom), I put it in what I think is a safe place. Of course, when I go to retrieve it, I never seem to find it. However, this time I didn't even have that excuse. So I spent the last three Saturdays tearing my sewing room apart and putting everything back together looking for that pesky piece of Schwalm. I found lots of other things that I forgot I had and even made some contributions to the Youth program. But that Schwalm piece is still missing.

I normally just shrug my shoulders when I can't find a piece that I put in "a safe place" and go on to something else. However, this is my design and I need to finish stitching it so I can write the instructions and take photographs. Luckily I hadn't stitched very much of it, only one coral knot vine, so starting over isn't the chore it could have been.

Now knowing I needed to start over, I got out the Belfast linen and cut a new piece yesterday evening. This evening I overcast the edges and traced the design on. Now I can stitch it up over the next few weeks while watching TV with my husband. Want to bet that as soon as I finish the new piece, the old one will turn up?
