Getting my lost blocks back

During a break at church today a friend told me that the lady who may have walked away with my blocks last week was there today. She happened to be sitting directly behind me on the front pew as I played the piano. The friend suggested I write a note and give it to her as I came back to play the last few songs of the service.

I wrote a little note, asking the lady to wait a few minutes after the service ended. We usually play part of a song as people are going out, and I wanted her to hang around until I was finished. I handed her the note on my way back to the piano.

She was waiting when I finally got done. I introduced myself and asked her if she had been sitting in the other pew last week. She said yes. I told her there was a bag on the pew. She said she had picked it up with other things. When she got home she looked in the bag, knew it was part of a quilt, and had wondered where to turn it in.

I asked her if she could just bring it with her next week and drop it off with me. As it turns out she plans to come to the church a couple of times before Sunday. We plan to meet at the church tomorrow evening before one of her programs begins. I don’t go to the church on Monday, but I don’t mind driving if it means I can have my blocks back sooner.

I’m looking forward to getting my blocks back, and although I had Plan B in my head, I’m so glad I’ll be able to complete the quilt as I originally planned it to look.


  1. Yay! So glad things are working out well :)

  2. I am glad you found them and that the person kept them safe for you!
