Default Missing

Where do things dissappear to. I had almost a whole shoe box of 3 1/2" tumbler blocks cut out. Now I can not find them anywhere. I really do not want to tear up the sewing room, but this is going to drive me nuts.

They are probably with a rotary cutter I "lost" about 20 years ago. Still makes me nuts that it never re-appeared. It's not like I would have ever had a reason to take it out of the house.
I call this place where "stuff" goes "the land of the lost". Somedays I think I am there too!

If it makes you feel any better I lost a 7 yd piece of fabric (someone else's - luckily I was able to replace it) and still haven't found it. That was about 4 years ago - it is very well hidden

Yes, that is going to drive you crazy. I too have stood at the sewing room door and muttered, "I know it's in there somewhere!" Good luck on your quest!

Will be hoping you find them before in desperation you start cutting new ones. I did that with some white strips I had cut. Little thread cutting scissors and rippers seem to disappear here, even though I have a lot of each.

I sure hope you find them. This happens to me everytime I put something in a safe place, it turns out to be so safe I can not find it!!!!!

I bet that has has been something we have all done. I sometimes buy fabric for a pattern and put everything together in large plastic bags. I lost one for the longest time. I found about a year later when I was searching for another lost project.

My dad lost his hearing aids last fall. They were the tiny 'in your ear' style, but were the latest technology, and therefore about $7 grand!! The fault fell on my great nephew, 2 at the time, who was suspected to have 1. swallowed them, 2. flushed them, 3. tossed them down the furnace grate. Well, this spring they were found. Outside, semi-buried in the ground beside a small cement "cow" statue that they have in the yard. Every grandchild 'rides' that cow at some time in their young lives, so he was only having his turn lol.
