    Is it just me - or is there anyone else out there - who can remember where they bought every piece of fabric, and even the name of the collection it is from and possibly the designer too - but can't recall what you had for supper last night, or what errands it is you're supposed to be running this afternoon?

    Is it anything like the times when you buy a piece of fabric and come home and find out you already have a piece of it? I tried writing the SKU on the side after getting it home but that didn't last long.

    I had an aunt who said she had selective hearing...she heard what she wanted to. I've on 3 occasions bought great new quilting books, only to get home and discover I already had them. Finally took the extras to a guild meeting and gave them to folks there that liked them. I have to write myself notes about errands to run and bills to pay or I forget sometimes. I've been known to call myself and leave a message of something I need to do/look for when I get home. I'd say it's an age thing, but I've always been that way. (O:

    I can pretty much remember every piece, especially if I bought it -- not so much if I got it from someone else.

    One time, though, I was looking through my fabric and I pulled a box out from under the bed and almost had a heart attack. It was full of fabric I did not recognize at all! I just couldn't understand it. Then I remembered that I had bought the whole box from a woman who had collected it to do watercolor quilts, so I hadn't actually bought it piece by piece. It was a big relief!

    I can remember when/where I bought it and what I planned to do with it. Now if only I actually used up more of it!

    It not just you. I guess my fabric is more important than.... alot of things. I can even remember how much I paid for the fabric. My mom is always amazed she will pull out a fabric from my stash to admire it and ask "where did you get/find this?" never really expecting a answer , but I can tell her where , when , and how much it was a yard, and the manufacture and designer/collection.
    Now if I can just remember to get what I went to the grocery store for...

    Yup, I'm like that. I also can go through my very large tub of scraps and tell you exactly which quilt it came from. Drove DH nuts when he was helping me iron for a scrap quilt :D

    Oh, and I'm a teacher, and I realized I have to go back to school next week (which, lol, that's really selective memory) and I was trying to remember the names of my students and not a whole lot came to mind. And I'm 25, so I really don't have an excuse :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
