Speaking of found things, particularly money...
Spot the $20 bill!
I have a couple of tins in which I keep my traveling sewing supplies -- various types of needles, thread, scissors, thimbles -- and at the bottom of one is a $20 bill. It's been there for a long time -- a few years -- and I can't recall why I put it there in the first place, but I keep forgetting about it and am surprised when I find it again... every.single.time. I doubt I'd even remember it was there if I was ever so desperate!!
Oh, Alabama!! It was a year ago that Kym & I were at the Alabama Chanin 3-Day Workshop -- I've been seeing FB reminders of that very fun trip. My "I Got Swamped" pin from Judy Hood's Swampette Tour is peeking from under some scissors in the top tin. I wish I was further along on my Car Jacket, but it's been out on my work table and I've definitely been thinking about it... even making a stitch now and then. *sigh*
I'm glad there is a semi-forgotten $20 to find! It's always nice to know that you're never completely broke and can still buy yarn!

You realize that now that you've blogged about it you're going to always remember it's there, right?

I've been thinking about it, too. (I want to go back!!!) I haven't made much progress on my dress, either. We have to remember, though, that we've made lots of other things in the past year -- and YOU have a new grandbaby to love!!! It's been a full year, hasn't it???

I'm sure there is a joke there somewhere about the $20 bill, but eludes me. Instead, let me just observe that it is at least a happy surprise when it happens.

Found money is just the best thing! And, how can it have been a year ago! What fun!

Wow - what a quick year it's been, huh? Maybe a few more found $20's and we could all go for a visit!

I like the way Mary thinks! I hope you left it there!

What a great idea! I need to tuck a twenty into my Emergency Knitting bag that goes everywhere with me.

How quickly time flies! It's hard to believe it was a year ago you two were on your great adventure. I've taken very few stitches in my AC T in last year, as well. There are many other creative outlets to follow and the time comes 'round for each one eventually.
