    I have done that very thing - and don't know whether to laugh or to tell my DH I need a 'keeper!' :roll:

    If only I had the time back that I spent looking for missing items (blocks, pieces, scissors...you name it) I could have finished a lot more quilts!

    I've done the same thing only to discover I had sewn 2 blocks together when I picked them up to sew.

    LMBO, sorry for laughing but it gave me such a giggle...

    Join the club! I can sit in my chair and lose things! I sometimes think the gremlins come into my sewing space. LOL

    No, I have never lost a block under my presser foot, but I have put one away in my stash.

    You are lucky you found it. I am still looking for an 11"x7.5" section that I know was there as I put sticky letters a-g on each section as I cut them. Each set of rows cut 7 of the same sections. It is the de garance French General made out of a Jelly Roll. Somehow, in the letter D section one came up missing. My sewing area is pretty small, the dining room, and I can't figure out what could have happened to it. I know I didn't throw it away, and it really is not that small to lose. It has been over a week, and I still can't find it.

    I have lost (misplaced) a block more than once. The problem is that I usually don't find it until I've made another block.

    I was going to a quilt retreat,I called a taxi, then rushed to bring my luggage downstairs,suitcase,sewing kit, some food and my sewing machine one flight of stairs, one more to go, I hear the recycling truck coming to empty the bins.I repeat the moving starting with my Pfaff that I place far from the bins, I go up the stairs one more time, turn around, my machine is gone! I yelled so loud, the driver which is now waiting on a red light got off, finally got my machine back!
    Let me tell you that I got in the taxi shaking from that eÍrience.

    I am always losing pieces and I haven't moved from the sewing machine. Yesterday I was doing some paper piecing and lost one of the sections. (still sitting at the machine) Looked all over- behind and under the machine, on the floor, in the waste basket - not to be found. So I traced a replacement and wouldn't you know when I finished sewing the section I found the lost one - where - In the waste basket right on top where I had looked before! I think all of us have had that experience once or twice - maybe more.

    I've looked for my glasses when they're on my face.
    Great stories everyone.

    Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one. But it started when I was much younger. I was in a hurry to hem some pants so I could wear them right away. I finally was done and held them up to see.Would you believe I hemmed the same leg twice. (they made nice shorts).LOL

    Now I know why I feel so at home here. It is so nice to know I'm not the only one.
