    Where oh where can it be??????

    Hello ................

    Well I am wondering if any of you have the same problem I do when I clean my sewing room???

    Mission organization - well it seem that when I organize and everything is nice neat and tidy - I can never seem to find what I am looking for??????? Before the cleaning I could go to my sewing room and know exactly where to look for things and after the cleaning things are never to be found again. Spent 2 hours looking for a piece of fabric I had in hand the day before cleaning oh where oh where can it be. I know it here someplace??????????
    Please tell me I'm not the only person this happens to........ lol

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean! When I am cleaning and organizing, it will always seem so logical when I put something somewhere but then I guess I am never that logical again! I had my space looking pretty good a couple of days ago and now it looks like a small tornado has gone through the area. Fabric pulled off shelves. Bits and pieces of cut fabric on the floor. Piles of fabric to be cut. Instructions all over the place. Plastic bins all over the floor with the lids off. Rotary cutters, scissors and rulers every where. What took me 30 minutes to destroy will take a a half of a day to put back together into at least a bit of order.

    Yea, I resemble that cleaning remark. Like you, one day it seems this is the perfect place for that something and the next, well who knows. Organizing is like stringing beads with no knot on the end.........

    Oh heck yeah I know that feeling all to well.
    Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.
