Lost and Found...
I started cleaning out the other wood drawer. It was amazing. I found all kinds of things between the wood and on the bottom of the drawer...
Photos, a couple of bead work mandalas, a half finished hat, and a carved barley twist post for a bed... I don't think that I ever carved the other three... It was for a copy of a bed that I made a long time ago. I was always sorry that I sold it. This one was going to be a keeper.
Then I found three pieces of wood for columns that I had started by painting one... Not the other two...
Please don't ask me where they were supposed to go.... I have no idea.
That's when I became a casualty. I ran the edge of the drawer against my right thumb and managed to run a very thin splinter about an eighth of an inch in, under the skin. OUCH!
I finally managed to pull it through and out the other end of the hole that it made! After getting it out and administering disinfectant and a bandage I found this assortment behind the drawer.
It is a pattern for a rug that I designed years ago. It was complete with the started rug. The working copy and evidently a copy "suitable for framing"??? It was mounted on a fancy piece of wallpaper.
I think that it disappeared just a couple of years after we moved into this house......A long, long time ago... I can now finish the rug!
The splinter was almost worth it! As soon as it heals, I will be doing some needlework.
Back to the wood drawer. I have yet to finish putting on the wax and filling it back up...
See you tomorrow.

I'm sorry you had to suffer, but as you said it was well worth it.
