Lost is Found

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

I often set things down and don't remember where I put them.  I have many pairs of reading glasses because the eye dr. said not to bother with anything but the cheapie ones for my "aging" eyes.  (Not sure if I was happy with that statement or not~!)  Ken often has to help me search for my glasses, keys, coffee cup, purse, book---oh, the list is endless.  Often he helps me search for items he has no real idea of what they are except for my description.  "You know honey--the bobbin case for the 15-91 with the finger at 11 o'clock instead of the one at 1 o'clock".  Hehe, the one that evokes the most response is "Honey--I can't find my needle and I was sewing the binding on while I was in the recliner".  THAT one has him jumping up wildly and whirling around because HE usually sits in that recliner!   But for the last few days I have had my undies in a bunch because I could not find my box of sewing machine needles.  Now, the box is small (maybe 1.5"x1.75") but it had most of 100 needles in it!
   But tonight as I was racking my brain, it dawned on me, I had PUT THEM IN MY FEATHERWEIGHT CASE!!!  


Such a small item to cause such a big fuss in my OCD lifestyle!   I had a nasty time last night sewing, I am going to bed early and read.  (I spent a lot of time doing the RIP IT stitch!)  I don't even trust myself trimming my blocks.  I do have the roast in the crock pot and Ken will put in on when he gets off work.  So goodnight everyone, my world is settled again!

Oh, that is so frustrating, isn't it?! I'm glad you found your needles...

I'm in the same boat and it often feels like it's sinking. I'll put something in a 'safe' place and it disappears for a few weeks or more. I can have something in my hand one moment and not be able to find it the next. Grrrr.

I had to chuckle at this post...my Dh claims I move everything and change where we "keep" it just to confuse him! This from a man who just noticed a new painting over the fireplace...ah it has been there since we moved last October!

So glad you found them! My husband put up a new light in my sewing room 2 weeks ago & I helped put tools away. We are still looking for the screw gun & it's big! Thanks for visiting my blog. Come again soon..

Any time I lose a needle in my quilting room, I know as soon as my husband walks around, he'll find it! Why is it that I can go for months without finding a sharp thing on the floor? :P

Had laughing with the recliner and needle. I lose a needle or two near my recliner also. My hubby helps look for them too, due to the fact, he has to walk by the chair. mmm the thought of a needle in a foot hurts just thinking about it.
