Default Where are they?

I am fairly sure that I have a group of themed fabrics - I finally found some of them - but I still think there should be some more.

Anyone else have things disappear - and you think you looked "everywhere logical" for them?

Sure. Here's the thing, if you go out and get something to replace them after giving up on finding them, they will fall on your head the next time you come through the door.

Sometimes that is my fast trick for finding something Most recently it worked on my bottle of spray baste.

I've been pulling metallic fabrics out of my stash for the last year and thought I'd gotten them all. I keep finding little bundles stuck in here and there.

And then sometimes my husband's selective hearing comes into play. Like "don't put that in the storage unit" turns into "put that in the storage unit"...

But my other good trick is to put something "some place safe" only for it to disappear for the next five years.

Then look in the illogical places!

Usually when I lose something that seems to obvious not to lose, it's right where it should be ....
but ..... tucked in under or between something else so that it doesn't show.

Good Luck in your search ..... but think of all the "finds" you will discover during that quest!
You'll have to tell us the surprises you come across ... and the things you have forgotten about!

I spent 3 days last week giving my sewing room a thorough cleaning and sorting.
Now I'm terrified I won't be able to find anything

sewing room--all the time--right now I'm looking for some fabrics I won from Art Gallery Fabrics to make my DD a duffle for Christmas--that's what happens when I clean up my sewing room!
And while in Houston this weekend I realized I didn't have my debit card, so called to suspend it. Spent time last night when we got home and again for about 5 hrs today looking Everywhere--all clothing pockets, car, old purses, etc. Finally gave up and sitting here in my chair and got up and lifted up the cushion and could see it wedge there. Have no idea how it ended up there!

I searched for my holiday fabrics for a year and a half. I did not find them for last year, so no holiday fabric sewing projects. I found them only a couple months ago in an under the bed bin. Opps! I thought I had looked there while doing my search. Well I have plenty for this year with no doubt. My thought... keep looking don't buy more it is bound to show up when you least expect it.

I know I have a hand mixer. At least I used to have a hand mixer. I can't find it. Maybe it quit working and I threw it away, but it seems like I would remember that. Or maybe it's still in a kitchen cabinet, hiding. I wouldn't have taken it elsewhere in the house... would I?
