New Years Eve -- News Flash!!!

Eureka!!  Happy little dance! No...happy BIG dance!!! My 'missing' Roll Roll Cotton Boll has been found!  You have no idea how relieved I am.

All my readers in blogland and online groups all knew it was only a matter of time before it stopped playing 'hide and seek' and jumped out to where I could find it.  Tonight, after a concerted "Please Lord!!  I REALLY want to find that quilt.  YOU know where it is.  Can you please tell ME???"

I realized that there was one packing box I had not checked in our upstairs landing (on the same floor as my sewing room).  I was thrilled when the box on top was moved to reveal these sweet words:  "Sewing Room".  Heart beats a little faster.

Open the box...oh goodie!  oh goodie!  There it is!  Exactly how I remember leaving it.  What a wonderful gift to close out 2011.  Thank you my dear Lord who cares about the small things that concern us and make us fret.  You are SO good!

Here she is:

exactly as I remember putting you away.  What a HUGE sigh of relief.  I was so worried that somehow it had gotten given away to Value Village in one of our trips to get rid of stuff. I can relax and let 2012 happen.  Party on people!

And I shall party on with Orca Bay Step 4 and onwards tonight.  Here's a photo of my Step 4 string triangles:

66 out of 128 done.  I'm only halfway??  Oh well...soldier on I shall and get these babies finished.  The colours in my photo taken by my blackberry make them look more brown but they are actually gold through to rusty red.  I'm very happy with how they play with my aquas and black/whites:

OK...back to my sewing room I go.  I just couldn't keep the good news to myself!

Happy little quilting dance!


  1. I'm very happy that you found your 'lost' quilt! What a wonderful way to begin a new year! As a friend recently said to me, "May your thread never tangle!"

  2. HOORAY!!!! I've been hoping that the lost would be found by New Year's Day for you. The RRCB pieces are so pretty in the boxes. I bet you'll have trouble now knowing just which to work on first.

  3. Great news that the lost is found! Especially when it is a quilt!
    Happy New Years!

  4. So happy that you found your "lost" quilt! The Lord is only wondering why it took you so long to ask Him where it was....LOL! He is Awesome!!

  5. I well know that feeling of 'the lost is found'! Good job!

  6. Oh Cathy, I was asking and asking and wondered why He wasn't answering. I think it was a special blessing He saved for the last day of 2011!! LOL.

  7. So glad you found your quilt; I couldn't imagine losing all that hard work on any quilt but RRCB is so beautiful. Mine is away being quilted and I can't wait to get it back. Have a fabulous 2012 and onward with Orca Bay, I am turtling along with mine. Arley(sooke)

  8. it's wonderful that thou hast found it!! I imagine how you jump from joy when you've found it ! mine is still going too ... and I will come see your blog from time to time ... to encourage me to continue! Happy New Year to you! with your RRCB!!
