    I rarely reorganize, my sewing room is in a state of chaos but I learned that if I move (clear up the mess LOL) I waste more time searching than I had to sew in first place

    I lose my ruler in plain sight all the time. It's clear with black markings and my counter tops are black. I find it when it falls on the floor.

    I have a drawer full of scissors! DH is constantly 'borrowing' them and I finally had to lay down the law that any pair with orange handles he can use for anything, but other colors are off limits to anything but fabric!

    I am still looking for my wrist braces. My house is neither that big nor that messy for those to be missing in action. Glad you found your tool.

    I've mis-placed a needle turned applique border for a king quilt! I sure hope it turns up by the time I'm ready to put the other three borders on.... I've searched everywhere.... and I have no dogs or cats to blame... only me! You can always use another ruler... get another one. :shock: :mrgreen:

    Sat down with the quilt to snip off threads before layering and the borders were already sewn on the sides!!
    That is definitely a post menopause thing!!!! Can't tell the number of times I forgot what I was doing or writ...................................... :roll:

    Been there, done that. I've only been at this for a short period of time, but I lose things all the time :?

    Say a prayer to St. Anthony. He is the patron saint of lost items. I go to him so much he says "Oh its you, Honey, what do you need this time"!

    My cats keep me organized. I dont dare leave anything out as they will play with it. One likes to pull my flannels out and drag them all over the house. I hang or put all notions and thread in containers.
    I layed a baby quilt on the floor to take a picture and in the time it took me to get the camera 2 cats were laying on it. I have 4 cats by the way. They sleep on my cutting table even though I have a table just for them by the window. I love them anyway.
