Default Missing template

I have a small triangle template from Missouri Star to use on charm squares....I just can't find it. I've looked in my metal container that is filled with smaller templates and it's not here. Not in with my larger templates either. Yes, I've actually seen this missing object in the last couple of months so it's not a figment of my imagination. 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!!

Hold something similar in your hand and pretend that you have it and you are going to put it away. Did you put it where it belonged or choose another place? Usually you put things away in a consistent manner.

If it were me, and I bought another one, I'd have two.

If it's inexpensive I would just buy another one. Not worth the frustration. I know how you feel though- drives me nuts when I can't find something I know I have!

Did you put the ruler with a pattern or the charm packs perhaps? What else came in the order? It might be mixed with it. Is there another ruler you can use instead of that one?

It does cause a little panic when we can't find our stuff. I hope you find it soon.

Check any piled fabric to see if it slipped in. It is gong to drive you crazy until you find it. I lost 4 quilt blocks a week ago and thought I would go insane until they turned up .

I would work on something else for a bit. Sometimes when you are not looking for something that is when you will find it.

I would quit looking for it and go onto another project and when you are looking for something else your missing template will show up. I do this all of the time. I will lay something down such as a small pattern or template thinking about something else and misplace the item. Hopefully this will happen to you and you find it soon and then you will say "why did I put that there?"!!!! Good luck.
