    No amount of "extras" would cure my ~I can't find______. I try to keep 4 pair of glasses in my work room. At the moment only one pair is in here and it's on my head.

    Pin cushions, definitely pin cushions.... I have many of them - a couple by my sewing machine, one by the ironing board, and a couple on the cutting table..... oh and another over by the design board... and a few more on the shelf, just for fun!!

    Rulers, thread snips, seam rippers, scissors are the things I have the most multiples of.

    I have multiples of lots of things. But not because I lose them. I have them because I don't want to have to go all the way to another room or up or down the stairs for something. Come tax return time I'm also getting another vacuum and another step stool just because I'm tired of dragging them up and down the stairs.

    I'm probably never more than 6 feet away from a pair of scissors no matter what room I'm in.
