My Luck has Changed.

Well apparently it was I who was lost and not my quilt. Who knew that getting a Thank You card out of my Hope Chest would change my life?!?!?!

I will start at the beginning for those that are just joining in. My family moved right after Christmas. I had just finished a quilt for my bed and had it returned from the long arm quilter and only had it on my bed for 2 months when we moved. In the move the quilt was LOST. My family searched EVERYWHERE. After looking everywhere we gave up becasue what else can you do. I wrote this R.I.P. post and started thinking of a new quilt. Well 1 day shy of 4 months of losing the quilt I FOUND IT!!!!!

My Luck has changed!


My mom and husband each needed a Thank You card last night and at the foot of my bed I keep my Hope Chest that I keep odds and ends in and I went to get one out of there and once I opened it I just starred! Apparently I was making weird noises since my husband comes in and was like what is going on. I couldn't talk and just pointed to the bag that was on top of everything in my Hope Chest. Brett was like, oh is that your quilt????? Hmmmm YES YES IT WAS! I pulled the bag out and ripped it open ran into my parents room and my mom and I just wanted to cry (but we didn't) we just could not believe that I had found it. These 4 months that it had been missing it had been at the foot of the bed the whole time inside my Hope Chest. So close to the bed that it was meant to be on. Hilarious I know. Apparently I was the one that could not remember where it was. Moving does really mess you up!

FOUND!!! no longer RIP


I am just so happy that I have it and my bed isn't ugly anymore!!!!

On a funny note right when it happened my Dad took my picture on my iphone and I texted it to my bff Erin! Crappy picture but funny

I am so happy to hear you found it. So sad to think that someone might have stolen it! Weird but you hear about people stealing them all the time. So thankful yours wasn't. It was all tucked away safe and sound the whole time. Beautiful quilt too! Jenn

Oh I can only imagine how you felt when you found it. I hate loosing things let alone a beautiful quilt like that. It looks gorgeous on your bed and you look so happy.

Sue said...

Darci, how wonderful for you!! I would have squealed and cried at the same time, oh and run around in circles then just stroke it for a while.

diane said...

Yeah...that would be a lot of hard work, time and money lost if you didn't find it. It is a lovely quilt, too!

Jenny said...

HOLY MOLY!! That is awesome you FOUND it! I can't believe it.

Kelly O. said...

I am sooo sooo pleased for you!

amylouwho said...

already told you on Flickr, but this is just awesome! And I'm with Erin. Finish the other quilt and then you can have one to swap out with the seasons.

I think I'm going to go 'lose' my bird quilt for a couple of months. Maybe I'll like it better if I haven't looked at it for a while.

I'm so pleased you found it. I wonder if the fabric fairy has just delivered it in time for Easter?! Maybe you should leave a present for her in case she turns up looking for something else to 'borrow' ;o) Enjoy sleeping under your marvellous quilt.
