The Land of Madge

Well, kind of. :o)  She now has a face and she also has a chair to sit in. I am in the process of making her some more clothes.

The last pic is something that is so easy to make. I thought I might make some initials on keychains for Christmas presents.  They are quick too.

That's about it for me today on the crochet front. I had something happen Friday that I have had to deal with and am still dealing with. I lost my wallet Friday morning and didn't realize it until lunchtime. I know where I lost it - between work and the mailbox, and I know when I lost it - 7ish Friday morning.  In it I had: my work key card and ID, drivers license, ss card, bank card, 3 credit cards, gas card, concealed weapon permit, over $100 in cash (which I never carry cash, but I sold an A/C unit out of my shed a few days prior and had the cash in the wallet), my very first drivers license (age 16), my health insurance card, 3 vehicles insurance cards, AC Moore card, and odds and ends that I can't begin to know what all I had in there.....I can't remember. No one has returned it. They probably took the cash and chucked the whole wallet. My first driver's license is sentimental to me - I had lost it and my dad had it and gave it back to me about 4 or 5 years ago....he passed away a year ago. The rest is a pain in my rear to get back. Most of all my bank card. I can't do anything without it. It takes 7-10 days to get a new one. Of course that was the first thing I did was call and cancel that and the three credit cards. The gas card had a pin on it so that was a useless card to them.

I was so upset Friday after discovering it was gone. I had ridden my scooter to the big mailbox that morning (which is down the road about a quarter mile from work) because the parcel I was sending out was too big to fit in the slot of our work mailbox. I had put my wallet in my front pocket (like a dummy) instead of my back pocket, and it must have fallen out on my way back to work. Like a bigger dummy I had left the back door cracked so I didn't have to use my key card to get back in the building. If I had closed the door I would have realized it was gone right away and went back looking for it. 5 hours is a big window that you're just about assured you won't find it, someone else did and wasn't honest enough to at least turn the wallet back in and take the money and run. This is the first time this has happened to me. I was truly sick inside when I realized it was gone.

So now my mind has been constantly going since to figure out what I need to do to make sure this NEVER happens again. I hope this hasn't or it ever happens to you. It's horrible - a horrible feeling, a horrible process of getting everything back, minus the cash that no one can afford to lose.

I hope the rest of your week is good. Cya soon!


  1. Ugh! What a terrible headache for you. I'm so sorry to hear about all that trouble. =( I hope you start getting everything back that you need.

  2. Madge's face turned out adorable.

    Bummer on the wallet . . . .but it reminded me that I need to make a copy of the front and backs of everything in my wallet again :0{

  3. Madge's chair came out so nice. :)

    Sorry about losing your wallet - hopefully an honest person found it and will turn it in.

  4. Madge turned out very HAPPY! You did a great job. The chair is too cute, she will love it. Do we ever get tired of playing with dolls?

    So sorry to hear about your wallet. Reminds me that someone once said we should copy everything in our wallet, both sides, and put it somewhere safe for just this instant. I reckon' I should do that. I hope someone turns it in. Don't give up. Someone stole my husbands ashtray out of his truck. It had a bunch of change in it. I'm sure they did what you said...take the money and throw the ash tray. He just wants the ash tray dangit.

  5. Oh my goodness how horrible. I am so sorry you are having to go through all this.

    Madge and her chair are just adorable! :)

  6. losing your identity is scary...Saying a prayer for calm

  7. I'm sorry to hear about the wallet. I will think very positive thoughts for you that a good Samaritan actually has it and will get it back to you. When I lose things I usually find them.. and I'll think "finding" thoughts for you.

I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
