    Lost in my sewing room

    I lost a box in my sewing room and cannot find it anywhere. My brother came over yesterday and I thought a new pair of eyes would find it. I opened the door to my room and he said "don't you ever clean your room"? I told him it was clean. I proceeded to show him how I had no room to put anything anywhere but where it was. He laughed. But he couldn't find the box either. He said if I cleaned it up I would find it. I know if I straightened it up, I would misplace more things. lol

    I am with you there. I know where I put things but if anyone goes in and moves anything I might never find it again. I am the same way about my kitchen.

    But think of the treasures you might find in the process!

    (I find all sorts of things I had forgotten about when rearranging/cleaning - but not always the object of my search!)

    Hope you find what you are looking for.

    I'm in the process of redoing an adjacent room next to my sewing room. So guess where all the room's stuff was stored? I can barely walk through to my sewing machine. Everything is piled on piles. I will never try to redo a house one room at a time while living in it. I know I can't get to anything even if I knew where it was. LOL
    Got fabric?

    I am in the process myself --- I set up a folding table today and put baskets under and on it --so far I have found three tape measurers of both types (cloth and metal); six packages of the same brand and size of hanmd sewing needles; 6 (yes, I recounted a few times) half yard pieces of the same fabric --- next quilts main fabric I am thinking;
    my eyeglasses; two magnifying glasses; 12 sharpies; two rolls of Press 'n Seal; two rolls of freezer paper; an unopened pack of printer inks ($67 a pop); and doubles on one quilt magazine --- now I can gift my sister instead of worrying about wheter I will get my copy back. LOL. And that is just starting. I think I need to get my plastic drawers from storage and when they are full Get another set. LOL I know I only started to find my glasses, but I am sure there must be some money in this too! ROFL
