    Ready, Set...Not Going to Happen

    Grrrrr! I've been saving all my red fabric until I could wash it in Retayne. Today was the day but now I can't find my bottle of Retayne anywhere. I'm almost certain I put it in my sewing tin but it's not there. Normally I would blame it on DH but he wouldn't have a clue what to do with it. Maybe we have a ghost. Don't you hate it when you have your day all planned and it goes south before getting started. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    It's good to know other people loose stuff, too. I'm always coming home from shopping, putting things away and never seeing it again. I hope you Retayne shows up soon.

    I lost a part to a golf flag in my sewing room, didn't find it until I went thru, cleaned and straightened EVERYTHING. There has to be this little gnome/fairy/ghost that lives in all our houses and only comes out when it can frustrate us the most.....and cause the most possible trouble.
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    Don't beat yourself up too badly, you are in good (and numerous) company. Just this past week I lost a Moda honey bun roll in my newly organized, cleaned up sewing room. Four days later and after the mood passed, I found it. As folks generously pointed out, many of us are just not good at retrieving.

    ​Of course you can't find it, it's Sunday. I always lose or misplaced or run out of something when my LQS is closed. Did you maybe put it on the shelf in the laundry area? How about the linen closet?

    he, he, he. Something is telling you it's not the time yet to sew!!! look for other things, then you may find the Retayne.

    I put things in a "safe" place so I won't lose them .... and then forget where the "safe" place is. Oh, it's so much fun getting older .....
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
