    I woke up in the middle of the night last night with a brilliant idea and thought I have to post this on the board in the morning. Now I can't remember what it was. How sad is that. LOL

    I have gotten to where I get up and write down stuff like that...LOL...because if I don't then I'll never be able to remember it later.

    At 72, I keep a tiny tape recorder next to my bed and in my car. The two places I get my inspirations. I also take my camera to record color combinations that strike my fancy. I keep everythingnin my journals. They really help when I am deSigning patterns.

    Darn, I hope the idea comes back to you. I am 73 and some days I feel like I can barely remember my name. Not that bad really, but I hate having to try to remember names and where I have put things.

    I once scribbled down a dream idea in the middle of the night, and went back to sleep sooo satisfied that I'd saved it.... only to find in the morning that what I'd written was a total "anjobvwei0pjvwoabnfwehig nppoujipn" kind of gibberish. :)

    I have note pads all over the place and a tape recorder by the bed also. If anyone told me that getting older was such a pain, I don't remember! LOL!

    My DH and my favorite invention yet is the post it notes. Our microwave is covered with reminder notes. What makes me made is I will be up in my sewing room, think of something I need downstairs, Well when I get downstairs I have forgotten what I came down for. I then have to return up to the sewing room to remember what I was headed downstairs for!!! I get plenty of stair exercize everyday.

    They say the memory is the second thing to go and I can't remember what the first thing is.
