Default Not lost, but can't find

I've looked high and low through my sewing room and the house. Can't find my applique pressing sheet. Working on the quilt "Welcome to the North Pole" it's by the Piece O Cake ladies . I'm doing the fusible method. So I need that pressing sheet to assemble the house details. Looked in boxes, drawers, closets. On the floor, under piles of stuff. Behind my sewing desk. On shelves. Moved stuff. I'm just about ready to buy a new one!
Ever have things that you didn't "lose", but that you just can't find??

​I keep mine rolled, could it be with your rolled interfacing? So frustrating when you know it is in your sewing room somewhere!

I actually prefer parchment paper. Plus I can always find it in the kitchen drawer!

Since I don't have an actual "sewing room", I lose things all the time! Bought myself a really nice Ikea bookcase that holds square baskets and although I keep trying to organize those baskets into "like" items it just hasn't worked out. Some fabrics need their own basket. Do the jelly rolls count as a color or as a project? I have a pressing sheet somewhere too - glad to know that I can use parchment paper!

this was my first thought, too. I hate it when I can't find something, especially when I put it away in a 'safe' place.

Story of my life. Then when you go out and re-buy something, you trip over whatever it was you were looking for as soon as you come in the house.

And the "safe places" are the worst. It's been decades sometimes before they come back up to the surface...
