    Where is it hiding?

    I make pincushions using antique tea cups and saucers. I have a favorite that I use by my sewing machine. Last week when I got home from teaching a quilting class, I carried it into the house and put it down. Now I can not find it anywhere! Not kidding! As it is only DH and puppy living with me, we have looked and looked and looked. Can anyone suggest where this tea cup pincushion could have hidden?!? Suggestions wanted!

    In the cup cupboard, dishwasher, fridge (inside or on top), in your fabric that you took to class, beside your keys....that's all I can think of right now.

    Look in the next place you went after you thought you put it down. I am always finding my car keys in the kitchen or bathroom, the first place I headed after I dropped my hand bag.

    Doesn't this make you crazy! It happens to me more then I care to admit. When you find it you'll say Now I remember! I have misplaced my grandmother's hand sewn hexagon quilt. I know where I put it last but it's not there now. I keep saying it's misplaced because to think someone took it would hurt too much.
    Got fabric?

    This might sound nutty - but it's worked for me several times. As you're falling asleep, calmly think about where you put your it...for some reason that half-dream state seems to work. I once "lost" my wallet for a week...knew for sure i had it when i left my Mom's......Anyway, did this - and it popped into my head that it was under the front seat in the car. Had to jump up, get dressed, run outside --- and there it was. I had no conscious memory of having put it there after using my gas card to fill up. Hope you find it soon !!!

    Meditation really works for me to remember. I know exactly where I put my grandmother's quilt but it's not there. I hope I'll find it behind something one day.
    Got fabric?

    I try to remember what else I had that needed to be put away - and it's probably there. I once put a package of tampons in the freezer. That woke me up.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Of course it will be the last place you look. I agree, though, check the cupboard, refrigerator, dishwasher. In the bag of fabric. Just ideas from someone who has "Senior moments".

    My guess is that you inadvertently set something on top of it. Fabric? Mail?

    I had a strange thought...I wonder if the dog carried it away. I hope not because that would be dangerous!

    Is it possible that your bag tipped over and it is lodged under a car seat?

    While your looking would you see if you find my mind where your pin cushion is. I seem to have lost it somewhere between combining corn and quilting.

    You will find it, then tell the rest of us, so we can look in that place next time we mis-place something. LOL

    Since I'm not a farmer, I spent a minute trying to figure out why Silver Needle would mix corn into her quilting. "combining"
