Have you ever looked for something only to find it’s gone?

I have opened, moved, and unpacked every bin and box in my sewing room and I cannot find what I’m looking for.

The other night I started out looking for some samples I had made from the Bits and Pieces Book a few years ago.  I know I got these back from Southampton Quilts late last winter and was going to send them back to display again.  After I had gone through and looked everywhere the first time I realized that I also did not see the fabric I had bought for the back of my grandsons quilt. ?????  The quilt I need to be working on soon.  I can visualize both of these items in my sewing room.

Sunday I started at one end of my sewing room and opened everything, looked through every bin, box, and drawer.  I looked in the attic storage space, I looked in the storage cubby, I looked in the basement, and went through every other place that had a door, drawer, or cover to it.

I found nothing…

As I’ve pondered this over the past few days I realize I’ve also not seen a tote bag of quilting samples and some other finished pieces… I haven’t a clue where I could have stashed them.

I’m having a really hard time wrapping my head around this… I guess I should make a list of the things I haven’t seen so that I know what I’m looking for.  Phooey!

The worst part is now I have to go find new fabric for the back of my grandsons quilt… uuuugggghhh!

I look for a week for a bed spread. I finally found it under the mattress being used as a dust ruffle ! LOL !
Hope you find all your treasures.
Look thoroughly thru bags in bags

Just go buy more fabric for the back of your grandson's quilt. The day after you do that everything will turn up. At least that's the way it works around my house.

Cheryl, I had the same problem with a binding. I knew I bought it, but I had no clue where I put it. I was determined not to buy more...this matched fabric in the quilt! I eventually found it when looking for something else. Maybe...just maybe...our stash is out of control!

I moved to this house 13 years ago and I'm still looking for certain things. My grandmother's aprons and a crocquet set ! Couldn't find our wedding album for years but that finally showed up.
