Losing My Mind

After trimming up the Autumn String Blocks for yesterday's post I started trimming the rest of the Heartstrings blocks I've been making over the last week. If you've made string blocks you probably agree that this step basically turns them from a mess of strings into a pretty block!
As I started getting to the bottom of my stack I realized that I only had a handful of blue centered blocks so I started looking around for the rest of the blocks. Nowhere to be found.

This morning I looked around some more. I even pulled up my blog post from last Monday to confirm that yes, I DID make more blue blocks because I have a photo of them! By now I am looking high and low. There are not that many hidey-holes in my house.

Pretty soon I'm checking crazy places like my son's room, behind the washer/dryer and everywhere that I've already looked twice and starting to feel VERY annoyed. On my way to peek into the downstairs bathroom I spied a glimpse of color out of the corner of my eye...
 Hello 40 missing blocks!
Of course NOW I remember putting them there to clear the downstairs table. Funny how that works, not to mention how I was standing right next to them each time I searched that closet!


  1. That is when someone has to say, " If it were a snake...!" Glad it wasn't.

  2. I do that all the time! Glad they turned up :)

  3. Unfortunately I can COMPLETELY relate to your post!! How many times have I found my missing blocks sitting right out in plain sight? Too many. At least you can say your blocks were hiding from you. :)

  4. LOL! I know exactly how you feel so don't worry you are not the only one, only it usually my glasses perched on top of my head that i cannot find.!

  5. O gosh...kinda glad I'm not the only one that does this! Glad you found them! :)

  6. So common....forgetting where we stash things! Made me smile.

  7. Looks like we all do it! Hope you had a good laugh.
    I am pleased you found them!
