and the reason?
i never put away my tools, my papers, my fabrics, and last time... my bias tape maker. at least that is what i thought. i stood there, at my work table, in my
pit studio and wondered, almost aloud, where would i have put that thing the last time i used it? when did i last use it? is it in a project box? is it in one of the several bags lying about with stuff in them because i was too lazy to put that stuff back? is it tucked under several inches of other projects? is it 'kind of' put away in a box of like things? i don't have any other like things, so.... would it be in a box of sewing supplyee kinds of things? what the hell box would that be? and where???
it was on the wall, hanging on a hook, in the only place it ever has been since i bought it... but the problem with it being there is that is where it belongs and since i am a person that never puts things back where they belong it never occurs to me that i should look there first.
same thing goes for all my tea cups that go missing. they always turn up in the microwave, always. i never look there first - or ever - and instead just get a new cup. i only discover the old cup in the microwave at the moment i open it to re-heat the tea in the new cup... and then? it begins again.
i just went to test myself.... this time i passed. there wasn't a teacup in the microwave, but... i know for a fact that the bias tape maker is not where it belongs. it is on the work table with all the other little bits of stuff strewn about waiting for the creating to begin.
