    I am so frustrated. Cut out my binding while cutting my Uncle Bob's quilt out months ago-tucked it safely inside the magazine that had the pattern. Went to Vanuatu, and cleaned up my "area" in March, came back and just finished hand-quilting the quilt. So, I go to get the binding, and it and the magazine are no where to be found! I know it took me too long to finish this thing, but do you suppose it got tired of waiting and went looking for another quilter???? I spent over an hour looking (and my sewing area isn't that big!), and just can't find it. I now have to cut more, and I know as soon as I do, it will show up! I am SO frustrated!!

    It must be hanging out with my green fabric that went missing a couple of months ago. Cleaned out my entire fabric stash, and it's nowhere to be found!

    Sounds like a familiar song in my home. I am currently working on a chairity project making pillowcase dresses for our church to donate. I couldn't find my "regular" sewing thread. I found dozens of spools of serger thread, boxes of embroidery thread and even drawers full of machine quilting thread, no sewing thread. I finally decided to use the serger thread. The next day I just happened to walk by my thread cabinet hanging on the wall in my sewing room which I had completely forgotten about. I am still searching for a box of assorted elastic I needed for the same project. Thread found, had to purchase more elastic. I have a rare autoimmune disease that is supposed to be in remission. It or something seems to have stolen my brain. If I am this bad at 61 I had better get all of my quilts finished this year.

    It is with my lost RWB binding I need for my soldier quilt. And it is next to my brown batiks I can't find...

    I have had this problem so many times. I feel for you. One day my DH asked me why I was tearing the house apart, again. When I told him, he generously told me to use the top main drawer in his desk to keep the important things I need to be able to find in a moments notice. Since then, I know right where to find my magizine and any other small items for the quilts I have in progress. I just have to remember to put them away there. There is always a catch. :)

    I have a basket on top of my book case that has all the bindings for the quilts that are not done yet, also all the left overs from other completed quilts to use for a scrap quilt.
