A Forgotten WIP~Blogtoberfest 2012 Day 5

Hi Friends,
Have you ever started a project and then completely forgot about it?  I was cleaning the sewing room and found this sachet top.

I had completely forgotten about it.  I started it just before my sister asked me to make her some sachets for gifts last December.  

I set it aside, and between getting buried under 'stuff' and my absence from the sewing room, it was forgotten.

It just brightened my day to find this work in progress.  The original plan was to make a lavender sachet but I think I will use it for a quilt idea that is floating around in my head.

Have you recently found anything you had forgot about?  

Have a fabulous Friday!

  1. That looks sooo sweet. I love the little pearl button!
    I have a number of unfinished projects which I haven't forgotten about, no, I keep reminding myself to complete them ;-)

  2. So pretty! And, yes, I've done that too - found a long "lost" project under construction. I like it when that happens!

  3. Yes it is easy to put something aside and it gets buried or misplaced, only to turn up several moons later. I've done it several times. And it is sometimes nice that it does happen as we often see it a little differently and come up with an even better idea for it.
    The lace and embroidery work on your forgotten piece is just beautiful, it would have made a lovely sachet but your quilt idea sounds exciting. Hope you'll post photos when you complete it.

  4. Maybe that is why my desk is always such a mess - I have to leave the project out or I KNOW I will forget about it.
    Can't wait to see your quilt idea!

  5. What a nice find, so sweet and lovely. I bet it will be a beautiful quilt.
