    Where is my solid dark green fabric? I remember buying it, washing it, ironing it and putting it with the other fabrics for a specific project. Today, I spent over two hours looking for that darn fabric. All the other fabrics are where they should be except for the green. Where did it go? I feel like I've totally lost my mind.

    I hate it when I do dumb stuff ----- which means I hate something at least once a day! I hope you find it soon.

    Do you have children? My DD seems to know where EVERYTHING is in this house. All I have to do is say "have you seen..." She says "umm.." then it usually appears.

    Check the fabric you were going to use with it. Sometimes, when I find two or more pieces that work well together, I will fold them together so they stay together.

    This morning I had 5 flying geese fly away! I felt so silly knowing they had to be in the room somewhere.

    I can pretty much guarantee it will be in the last place you look!


    Really though did you check -- where your linens are, closet to see if you hung it up, folded it inside of some other fabric?

    Good luck

    ScrappyAZ,

    It's with MY dark green fabric (which I likewise cannot find). They're clearly up to no good.

    Isn't that just maddening!?! I looked for a utensil all this week only to find it last night in the utensil drawer where it's supposed to be. I had to overlook it at least 50 times. :roll: :roll: :roll:

    I love this thread. I found my car keys in the fridge once !
    And I can't tell you how often I have to search the house for something. At the moment I seem to have 'misplaces' half a meter of muslin LOL.

    She said she remembered washing it, ironing it and folding it. Maybe the fabric store came and reposessed it.

    I love it when I lose something while sitting at my desk. I know that I have not moved from the spot, but still can't find my (pen, scissors, the pattern, take your pick) very frustrating!
