    I do that all the time. I think my fabric rearranges itself at night while I'm sleeping. I know the scraps multiply.

    All the time. I always think I know right where a particular piece of fabric is that I want to use. Of course, that is not the case! I don't know how many times I have torn up the whole room looking for something only to find it was right under my nose.

    Oh YES! But, in midst of searching find WONDERFUL things forgot all about. Like discovering treasure! Bet begins more inspiration than any other method.

    all the time, if it isn't fabric it is something else.

    some friends say that it is probably 12-18 inches from where you are standing, just under something else. They are usually accurate too!

    I do this with patterns. I have so many free ones from the internet that I can't keep up & put them organized into notebooks. So when I need a particular pattern, it's quite a hunt.

    Couldn't find my brand new swivel cutting mat tonight. Used it once and now it's lost! Probably will find it under some pile of fabrics.

    yes. You can swear you looked in a place 6 times and when you finally find it it is right there where you know you looked before. I think the quilt fairies have it and are now laughing at you with the fun they are having. lol.

    does this ever happen to anyone else here?
    I looked for two days for a misplaced quilt block--it was stuck on my lampshade.

    Yes it was happening to me over and over...and still does but have been working on that because it frustrates me to no end.

    Finally I made a rule of thumb with ALL things and that is before putting away, I ask myself, OK, where would I look FIRST for this item? Because after a while you have this idea of where the most logical place you would have put it. I have found that rule has worked about 85% of the time.

    Oh, my! Just watched your slide show. There just aren't enough ooohs and aaahs left in me to adequately cover all of your beautiful items. The designs, the workmanship, the talent, the kids, the photography. Oh! It is just too overwhelming. Your work is outstanding and that word does not even begin to cover how I really feel about it. I am so totally in awe of you. I love the babies and the children. I am 72 and I want to make one of those again. LOL. Thank you for sharing. Yolanda Wood River

    If you are anything like me, you probably put it in a very specific safe place .... now remembering the "safe" place is another story :roll: Good luck! The only good thing is you will get to play with all the wonderful fabric in your stash while you are looking for it. My sewing stuff is the only thing I don't mind cleaning up.
