    I'm such a scatterbrain. I had two sets of blocks made for the Funky Neighborhood swap. Made, pressed and put away. Now if I could only remember where. . . . . . . I've looked all day and still can't find them. There's only one more room to look in. What am I going to do if I can't find them?????? ARRRGGGGHHH!!!!!!! :( :( :( :cry: :cry:

    I hope you find them so you don't have to start all over again.

    Oh I so hate when this happens and I get so mad at myself too. It just drives me nuts! I am sure you will find them. I once misplace an entire completed quilt! I was frantic and can't imagine what I did with it nor how the heck could I lose it! It was in a dufflebag type thing we use for traveling on the motorcycles. Was sitting right in the middle of my sewing room the whole time. Walked by the darn thing at least a dozen times thinking it was my brothers bag for when he comes to visit. Oh yeah I was pretty darn mad with myself. I call it CRS Cant Remember S**t. When it gets really bad it progresses to CRAFT. :lol:

    Sometimes taking a break from looking helps. I also use the alphabet to help remember things.. It will come to you, relax a bit.

    There are times when being organized is NOT a good thing.

    Are they in your car ready to go?
    Think - where would you put yourself if you were ready to go?

    Just a thought....
    Good luck in finding them.

    If you have someone (like a kid or a DH who acts like a kid) ask them to go in and "rearrange" things in your sewing room. Just give them 10 minutes... they're not to trash it up, but to just MOVE things from where they normally are. When you go back to "fix" what they've done, you may find the missing blocks. If your brain get "confused" at the normal suddenly not being normal, you might trigger your memory or accidentally find them. Whatever the case... deep breaths. They ARE there.

    I hope you find them. Since my husband passed away I have problems remembering where I put things. So I started putting sticky notes by my computer to tell me where I put things.

    I think they may have fallen victim to speed cleaning---when everything gets thrown in a room with a closed door. Either that or they fell into the garbage and got thrown out. I'm still looking. I'm sure I put them somewhere. I've looked in three dressers, numerous tubs of quilting fabric, numerous boxes, bags and stacks of quilting fabric and still can't find them. I can find all the fabrics I was using but not the finished blocks. Between birthday parties, overnight guests, vacation, quilting retreats, etc., who knows where they could be.
