    I have a sewing fairy too that likes to play pranks on me. I found that chocolate helps her moods - or mine - either way......... can't hurt.

    If I am missing something, I usually go ask Kola what she did with it.

    Earlier this week I was working on a project. My husband is making me something for my sewing room. He needed some letters covered with fabric. I left the letters on the island in the kitchen. And when I got ready to work on them two were missing. So I looked all over, started to think I may have accidentally threw them out. So I asked my husband, he had no idea where they went. So I asked Kola, she said.....how dare you accuse me of getting up on the island! I nudged her and said.........you old hag what do you think your sitting on now!....She jumped down, slinked off into the living room and said.....see if I offer to help look for them.

    I found them a little while later, under one of the kitchen rugs and the other under the fridge. Of course we will never know how they got there, since Kola would never, ever get up on the island.

    I had to laugh at this "dilemma" ya got going on there, sorry. For 2 months I couldn't find my best( & favorite) rotary cutter and was reduced to using my little tiny one to cut all my quilts with. I swore Chunky, my grandson, ran off with it and searched all 3 of his toy boxes and everywhere else he hides things. For 2 months! Then, while cleaning up the studio and working on the scrap bins last week, I ran across a lump at the bottom of one. Yep, there it was. Now how on earth it wound up at the bottom of a scrap bin that hadn't been touched in a year, I am utterly clueless. But, I sure hope ya find your stuff.

    I don't usually have a problem with the sewing tools, more of where I put my glasses, and cordless phones. I can't leave the house without my glasses, as I am nearsighted..

    My DH says Herman did it. I guess that was a ghost when he was growing up. To me that was the name I gave my sour dough starter.

    i keep my snips, tape measure....all the tools i use most while working. when done i cove w fabric being used or remember to be neat and tidy in case i don't get back to my wip soon. i have one lovely fuzzy that sits and stares at the box with all the tools. she digs around as if trying to find just the right tool for her needs. then she pulls out my snips, or that wonderful tapemeasure with the the that allows it to hang around my neck. couldn't figure out where things went for the longest time. then one night i stood in doorway & watched her. lollol...so now i have new plastic box with hinged lid to close away from sight, all those tools she loves most. no more crawling around floor w flashlight looking under china hutch etc with dusting wand in other hand to fish out my snips and whatever else had caught her fancy!

    My quilt/sewing room has always been off limits, but there was other things that were not... I never could find a pair of nail clipper, tweezers or everyday scissors unless they were in my pocketbook ....

    I've lost my bag of screwdrivers and such and I need to work on a SM. This is not good. Maybe it ran off with your tools.

    Oh no - a quilting fairy! I haven't heard of that. I know about the black hole that eats just one sock per pair but can't imagine a quilting fairy. I'll have to keep an eye out for her!!!

    So glad your head is attached. I've know people that can't find their--- with both hands.

    It sounds like the same person who takes all my stuff and moves it around. This is obviously a universal problem!!!!

    Fun thread. I eventually found my good scissors in my underwear drawer. Then I remembered I hid them there when I thought the kids were thinking of using them!
    I think we need to write a song about this, to the tune of "where do broken hearts go" maybe?

    Maybe they are with my missing things. I look for stuff all the time and it is always right where I left it.

    I am so glad to know that I am not the only one who does this. I thought I was going crazy.

    You think that's bad? I can't find the manual to my sewing machine and there is absolutely NO REASON whatsoever for me to have removed it from the room. It has been mia for several weeks now.

    Glad to hear I'm not alone on this one. Sounds like I have lots of company.
