    Guess what! I found my basting spray. A nice pretty green-capped can of Sulky KK2000 was sitting very nicely on the bookshelf right opposite my ironing station. Need I say more!!!! No, I didn't look there! Why? Because I have NEVER put it there before.

    You are not alone at all. Some time ago, a month or more, I finished cutting something and put up my cutting board and the
    rotary cutter.

    Later I looked all over the house for it, finally gave up and went on to scissors cutting, and just yesterday I moved a big pile of fleece material that I had put right where I could see it..you can guess it, under it to keep it from the cat was my cutting board and cutter.

    I have a theory about lost stuff. When you are not looking for it you will find it.

    I have one even more bizarre-I came home from the grocery store the other day and set down my keys and for the life of me couldn't remember where-I looked and looked and couldn't find them. I have a spare set so I wasn't too spazzed out, I was just confused as to where I could have placed them. Hours later my son came to me and asked me why my keys were in the fridge-I guess I put them there when I put away the milk.

    Yeah, I had a similar one a few years ago. I was babysitting my granddaughters; one fell asleep in her car seat so I unlocked the door, brought her in and layed her on the sofa. Finished doing whatever it was I was doing and later realized I couldn't find my keys. My older granddaughter and I looked everywhere, refrig and freezer, etc. That night when my son came to pick up the girls he asked why my keys were in the door for anyone to find. DUH!!!

    Back in the time when I didn't need my eye glasses except to read and write I lost my glasses and couldn't find them till I went to make supper and there they were in the meat drawer in the frig. That happened when I was in my 30ties. Had that not happened then I'd be panic stricken thinking it was the "HOME" for sure. But I can still remember the glasses AWOL put neatly away with the braunschwagger and laugh. Illsa

    The one I hate is when you look for something and it's right before your eyes and you still don't see it until hours or days later!!!

    Some years ago my late husband lost his wallet. He'd been to a bakery to surprise me and bought a big shopping bag full of loaves.Could not find his wallet when he came home. About a week later I needed something I knew was at the very bottom of the freezer ( chest type) and something black caught my eye. A wallet. He had put his wallet into the bag at the bakery instead of his pocket and simply dumped the contents into the freezer. So Manly!

    You probably did not put it there this time either. I am fully convinced there are Quilting Room Gremlins afoot in the world. Stuff goes walkabout around here now and then too.

    I know just what you mean. I have a package of pictures of all the quilts I have made somewheres, and can't find them. One day when I least expect it, I am sure they will pop up!
