    Turned the house upside down today...

    looking for my sewing machine oil, and the house looks it. Seems I will have to resort to the last ditch method of finding it (or anything). I'll go out and buy a new bottle, open it, use it, and then the old bottle will magically re-appear!


    Oh, well, such is life.

    Been there--done that! No doubt the other oil will make an appearance in about a week or so.

    I hunted for a sweater for a couple of months once. When I decided to pull out drawers and set them on the bed for rearranging there was the sweater hanging by the roughness of the wood on the back of a drawer!! There's no telling WHERE one might find something!!

    I will find what ever I am looking for where my kids or husband last used it. If I know they used it, that is where I start my search. Some reason they do not like where I have it stored.!

    Still can't find the oil for my Bernina. But I now have a longarm and am using the oil for that for the Bernina too. This sort of thing happens to me often. LOL I guess I put it somewhere super safe so it would not fall over and leak.

    I keep my machine oil in a special place in my sewing machine table. If I did not always put it back there, like you, I be looking everywhere.

    Ain't that the truth! LOL! As soon as I replace a "lost" object, it does seem to magically reappear!
