for some major decluttering around here! I wonder if Flylady would make a house call? It's not just one room, it's everywhere.
Early in the summer, I purchased some little charm packs from my local quilt shop. 5" square of fabric all from the same collection. The plan was to make a very simple summer cover. Just sewing the squares together, then backing them with muslin and tying. If there were any batting it would have to be something really thin and light. So I brought them home and spread them out and decided I really wanted something else in with them. I investigated and discovered that there was a charm pack of plaids that went with them. I waited to see if the LQS would get them too, but they didn't. The other day, while counting can money, I realized that I had enough $$ to order the plaid pack online. So I did. And today it arrived. Woohoo.
So I raced through supper and dishes while my regular cover was in the wash. The back of it is just white, so I thought I'd spread it out with the back side up for a neutral and have a lovely time arranging all the little squares just so, then kinda bundle them together for sewing. Cover got dry...I spread it out. Tossed the plaid squares on there and went to get the others....uhhhh where the ^$^&$$#@ are they? I knew exactly where they were! I'd made a pillow from some yardage of the same collection and those scraps were there. But the little charm squares? Nowhere to be found.
I consulted Cookie (just cause I ask her lots of questions about knitting, I thought I'd try). She said they were on top of my jewelry box. Nope. I thought maybe they were in the closet with my yarn. Nope. (but all the yarn is sorted *G*). I thought maybe it was on the shelf with some other fabric scraps left over from sewing projects. Nope, but that's all put away. They are just hiding very well!
And I realize that this place is a mess. Not really dirty but there is just too much stuff..or something. So, since several of my coworkers are on a diet and I'm not, I'll just put my house on a diet. And maybe, just maybe these little guys will turn up. :::crossing fingers:::
Now, I'm going to go knit on my socks. I DO know where they are. Thank goodness.
