Default Where is it??

Have you ever misplaced something - and you think you still have it - and can't find it?

I'm looking for four pieces of material that I'm reasonably sure that I still have some of. I can't find any of them - and I've gone through most of my fabrics at least twice!

You will find it after you stop looking and start looking for something else. I do that all the time.

I always find whatever I'm not looking for. Usually after I bought more fabric. I have a pattern that I KNOW I have and can never find it when I decide to look for it. When I'm looking for something else it shows up. I put it in a 'place I'll find it again' and it's gone again. SIGH

you will find it in 6 months, when you no longer need it and don't remember you were looking for it or why.....

Right now I can't find my grandmother's quilt. I have no idea what happened to it. It's just gone and it's always been put up in the same closet. I'm upset because it's missing and more upset thinking someone could have taken it. I have an idea who took it but of course can't prove it and the person knows I'm missing the quilt and acts like it doesn't matter, it's just a quilt. I'll keep looking for the benefit of a doubt.

I'm pretty sure it will be safe and sound in the last place you look

I posted about a quilting hoop I could not find, eventually found it in the attic, where I KNOW I did not put it, nor did my DH.

Oh, those pesky little sewing room gremlins move my stuff around all the time too. The joke is on them though because I eventually find what I was looking for... in whatever odd place they hid it. Don't worry, your fabrics will turn up.
