One of those days.


Yesterday started out pretty great.  Up early, full of energy.  Weather is perfection,  low 80s, nice cool breeze.  I went out and ran my errands, went to the grocers, you know that kind of thing. 
 
mini cherry pie
 
So I came home, got my borders cut for my cherry quilt and then remembered that I had bought a little  gift for a friend and I needed to get in the mail. Hmm. Where did I put that?  Probably someplace safe, right?  
 
 Then BAM my whole day turns into one of those days when I begin to TEAR THE PLACE APART looking for it.  Of course since lately I'd actually cleaned up a little, I thought it I might have accidentally  thrown it away.  Then I thought I might have casually tossed it on the cutting table, aka the dining room table, so I went though all the stuff I had laying on that table and believe me that took forever, since I actually put some stuff away in the search. Maybe it was in my little cart, emptied that twice.  I was pretty sure that I put it on the counter in my sewing room, so I went though that  stuff probably 10 times. Oh wait I might have lobbed it onto my sewing table with other stuff. Went through all the stuff on my table maybe 10 times. Through the recycling that sits at the end of the table because what If I knocked it off. Through the trash in case it was wrapped in mini bubble wrap and I didn't see it inside.  Oh maybe it's on the counter, the table, the cart oh wait maybe it's on the sewing table.  Finally probably two or more hours go by.  NOT EVEN EXAGGERATING.  I sat in defeat at my sewing table totally disgusted with myself and my ways.
 
And then I reached behind my sewing machine for about the 100th time and there it was.
 
So then I put the borders on the quilt and called it a day.  What's new with you?

LOL that was fun to read. But I know how frustrating it is! I do that with Xmas gifts that I buy throughout the year. And I made myself crazy trying to locate my Minick & Simpson Chippewa pattern, finally gave up and ordered another copy!

Thank goodness I'm not the only one! It makes me crazy not to be able to find something I want to use. Currently, I've misplaced a book and a ruler. I gave up looking but every once in a while I'll think...oh I bet it's in .... and go look and then find something I haven't seen in a while and I'm off. I truly think it's some kind of mental aberration. Probably not going to get better at my age....sigh....

Hope you have a fun day! XO

Wow, that sounds so familiar! It always amazes me how I can search the same place several times only to find it is there all the time!! How does that happen?? So glad you found it! Your quilt is absolutely adorable by the way!!

I am glad that I am not alone when it comes to stashing away presents and then can't find them. I recently purchased a very nice tote bag from Stella and Dot for my lovely daughter-in-law (worth about $100.00) and now cannot find it....
My hubby and I both have looked in every nook and cranny around the house. My fear is that I probably threw it in the garbage by mistake:(

When that happens to me I chalk it up to my mom playing tricks on me. Just before she passed away I asked her to give me signs that she is around in spirit. This is one of her signs <3

Glad I'm not the only one with safely stowing something and forgetting where it safely is.
Sometimes I get to my sewing room for something and think, "Now what did I come in here to get? Takes a sec sometimes before I say, Oh, yes!"
Being nearly 75 is my good excuse.

Oh I can sew relate! Finally got better about Christmas stuff and stashed a container in my closet just for them. About 50% make it in there. Never have been able to figure out how things just appear where you have already looked a zillion times. ....it's like where do the socks go?

You should write a book. I could totally follow along on your anxiety and search and heart thumping moment (maybe because I've been there too often). I'm just sooo glad you found the little gift! Now I will enjoy a cup of coffee and relax with you after experiencing that awful moment with you :)!

Miss Kitty you're making me lol all over the place. I can just imagine you in your search! Everyone sounds like they are in the same place as you, so at least your aren't alone in your trials.

I have been a loyal Kitty fan for years. Keep it up, you make my day.

Such an entertaining read and a sweet mini too. :-) I am lucky if I can remember I made or bought something for someone's birthday! And am forever losing things, mostly in the sewing room or garden. It's good to know I'm in such good company.

So funny...! This is why I own multiple copies of seam rippers, rotary cutters, scissors, measuring rulers... but this doesn't prevent me from searching over and over...
