That happens to me so often it is just a way of life. Rather than buy another one - why not make one out of cardboard or a piece of wood if you have some around. I find things later. I was wondering if I had one that I could send you. Since I got my Accuquilt I don't use my templates anymore.

Would you give up looking and order a new one or wait doing a certain project until it finally shows up? This is driving me insane as I'm usually very organized!!

Here's a saying my daughter & I say when something is lost: "Dear St. Anthony, please come around, something is lost and it cannot be found".

This happens to me all the time! How is this possible?!

I wish I could help with the question, but I'm the queen of magical disappearances. Sometimes I drop something, feel it hit my foot on the way down, but then it is nowhere to be found. One thing I've learned in the sewing room: the wastebasket has to be placed under the table or far enough away that small objects I'm working with at any given moment can't roll off and throw themselves away. Another important measure has been to wedge a pool noodle between my cabinet and the wall to keep things from falling where I can't get them. (This also helps in the car between the seat and the console. Pool noodles can easily be cut to size.)

Bahahaha! I read it this way in a book: "Tony, Tony, look around- somethin's lost that must be found!" It's the mob version, you gotta read it in your Sopranos voice, yo!
