A Moment of Panic!

I decided this morning to gather up all five of the projects that I will be working on next year. I wanted to get them all together in one bag so I can just grab it and go when I need it. I easily found three of them (one's on my scroll frame next to my stitching chair.) but I could not find the other two. They weren't where I had left them and I began scrambling to see if I could locate them. After about an hour, I gave up and went out to run a few more errands. In the back of my mind, I knew I had put them in a tote several months ago when I cleaned up my work space. That meant, I had lost a tote! Who knew what else was in there? When I came back home, I began to search for the tote. Imagine what I felt when I realized I was missing not one, not two but three totes! Now the other two totes contain knitting projects but they were still missing. I looked every place that I keep stash. No totes! I looked in my craft room and my bedrooom. No totes! Finally I looked in the closet of the spare bedroom. There resting quietly on the floor were the three missing totes. Just happy to be sitting there in the dark. And when I opened the one containing my cross stitching, there were the two projects I was missing. So I quickly scooped them up before they could escape and put them with the other three projects next to my chair. The tote went back into the closet where it is happily residing with the other two errant totes. Do you think I have too much stuff?

I so know that feeling of knowing where I had something only to find it decided to walk off and hide somewhere else.

P.S. I still have to decide which UFO's to work on...

I know I want to work on Jesus Wept and I am going to be in a SAL for Rocky Mountain Christmas. (which is a UFO)

So I need to figure out the other 3 to work on.

At least I have my list of all my UFO's on my side bar.

That's a horrible feeling isn't it?

I find more and more that I'm putting things somewhere 'safe' and can't find them! (Don't ask about the gifts I put away and forget that I've bought them until I come across them looking for something else!)

Too much stuff? Never!
