    Hope you get them back, but if you don't, you can make a nice label by just using the alphabet setting that doesn't need hooping. I use it all the time for q labels. Mine is marked a-z. Will "write" whatever you want in block small or capital letters. Very quick. Good Luck!

    We used to do Secret Pals at our church. I was so clever to leave the package for my pal in her car in a brown paper bag. For some reason I went back to make sure the card was in the bag also. I picked up the wrong brown paper bag...it had potatoes in it. Glad I found that in time.

    Like someone else mentioned, I forget where I put things. If I had a better memory I could save myself a lot of time.

    Not quilt related, but in the vein of never throw stuff out. I am in the process of applying for Medicaid for my 94 y.o. Mom who is in a nursing home. Need to go back 5 years for bank statements and financial records. yup, you guessed it, the woman never, ever kept anything...it might clutter up her house (she hated papers!!!!). Now that she has Alzheimers, she can't tell me what bank she used! Grrrr. We can go back to 2010 when she moved up here to New Hampshire, but where she banked in New Jersey???? No tax returns either...oh well, I can't find lots of my stuff either (although not bank related), but then again I only have "CRS" (can't remember stuff), not Alzheimers. LOL

    Hope you find your hoops. Maybe the good karma fairies here on the Board will have some that they are not using and would be willing to sell cheaply? Just a thought. I'll keep you in my good thoughts that the hoops will find their way home.

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.

    Your post brought to mind when we were camping in an RV and couldnot find our Chauauha, pup the size of your hand. I was sitting on the deck when I noticed a bumping bump in the big plastic full garbage bag. Yep! It was the pup she must have gone in to snoop and gotten bagged up.

Then the other day, I decided that I have to try the Accuquilt Go again, I am one who didn't like it the first couple of times I tried it. Well, I moved a couple of bins of stash in the back bedroom closet to get at the Go, and removed the dies from top of the Go and my eye caught a white crushed box under the



    machine. YES!!!!
    That is where I put the hoops, with the other "things" I would never use!!! Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.



    Never got to try the Accuquilt, husband and I decided to clean out that closet from the "old" work suits that he had, 8 suits that he "outgrew" since retiring are being donated (I am not putting them into black garbage bags - everyone stories have educated me). No suits left, and a wedding in October, so, when Jos. Banks has the next sale we have to
    get a "wedding" and a "funeral" suit. I found a "new" silk top and jacket that I can wear (it fits)to the wedding behind his suits. Thanks for giving me emotional support - our lives are so busy.
    I promise Saint Anthony a candle and find lost things. Once I threw a salad out the car window to save my froend's new car a mess as it was falling out of the take out box.next day I could not find my antique ring. Promised the candle and remembered the salad. Asked my friend to go back because I had to go to work. She found the salad at the road side and my ring!!! Just before the garbage truck came and would have picked it up. Lost chain nd medal found at side of toilet where I swear I had looked. Mom did the candle. Lost medal found stuck to the chanile robe.

    To much going on in our lives, busy, busy lives.
    My friend calls these "senior moments". I buy greeting cards ahead of the day I need to mail them, can't find them, go out and buy them again, therefor mail them late, then I find the first ones. I have many "greetings to my aunt and uncle" which I could not find and rebought but when the holiday comes around again I cant find them again. Tried toput the cards in a special box an have lst the whole box ,numerous times. several boxes. Next I'm getting a plastic clear pocket like they use in offices n hooking it to th wall in the hall. Maybe if thy do not entr the house they will remain in sight?
