Seam(ripper)less

Anyone seen my seam ripper(s)???

They're in an Altoids tin - along with my hand sewing needles.

No - not that Altoids tin - that has my straight pins in it.

No - not that Mary Engelbright tin - that has my quilting safety pins in it.

Ugh - I knew I should not have put my two seam rippers in the same tin -I should have kept one in the compartment on Zoe like I always did on Melody.

Why do I need them??? Because in my eagerness to production line all those lunch bags on Monday I forgot to leave a gap in the bottom of the lining for turning, and due to the curves on the top of the bag it really does not work well to turn it through the top and then topstitch.

Of course it would help if I gave my workspace a good cleaning - then it would probably turn up.

Grrr....

I hate when that happens! I lost my favorite pair of snippers and I just don't know where they could possibly be.

Trish said...

Personally, I buy them in bulk because I'm pretty sure they evaporate over time ..... how else could they disappear so often?

Gina said...

Bet you find them 5 mins after buying a new pair. That always happens to me.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I couldn't find mine either and I just did- all 5 of them when I cleaned my tables off. What I hate is I loose my seam ripper just sitting in my chair and not moving at all - it rolls behind my desk and I don't know about it until I give my room a good cleaning.

I am always loosing my seam ripper(s).

You can clean up my crafting area too, while you are at it;)

I'm forever loosing my seam ripper and my little snippers.. aw hell, I'm always loosing everything, including my mind!

I hate when this happens. Usually it's my expensive pair of scissors that disappears.

I hope you find them. You do know that after you buy another one, they will turn up. I do that because I'm lazy and it always works..LOL.

Hi Regina! I really enjoy reading your blog so I nominated you for the bookworm award! :) If you have a moment I hope you stop on by to see the rules of this award/meme.

and particularly because I only have 1 seam ripper to lose, I'm always misplacing it....and the scissors...and my pincushion...and....*insert any tool that I happen to need at the time here* :D
