I was looking for a pattern that I had printed from the net. I know I had it.... . But then Adult ADHD set in and I started playing in the patterns I had printed. Organized them. (guess what, I recalled the name differently than what it was, so I was going past it)

Fabric- yep- looking for something, I start organizing and next thing I know, i don't remember what I was looking for.

I must have some of those gremlins too- do you think they attach themselves to the fabric when they leave the quilt shop? The shop is always organized and the ladies know where everything is, so they must lie in wait for us to purchase and jump in the bag.

That's my clue I need to clean up and organize. Just did that yesterday because I lost a charm bundle I wanted to look through for a particular fabric. I swear sometimes Heavenly Father just hides things so I will stop and organize!

I have binding strips cut out for a lap quilt and can't for the life of me find them. I have looked everywhere. So I cut out more strips (had to settle on another fabric -- darn) and sewed it on. Will probably find the previously cut strips shortly.

All the time.

You aren't the only one. I bought three fabrics (several yards each) when we went to Hawaii over two years ago. I know I saw it once since then but still can't find it for the life of me. I was going to put it on QB to get some suggestions for a pattern, but not today!

Looking now. I know it's there somewhere!

Yes, with a lot of things. I seem to be looking for things more and more. Maybe I should be sewing more. Or how about going out to buy more fabric!
