B O L O!!!

A few days ago, I ordered a pair of embroidery scissors from 123 Stitch. They are great about sending stuff out right away. I received them yesterday afternoon....I used them last night while embroidering.....This morning I have spent and hour and a half looking for them. I even sifted through garbage and cleaned out the bedroom nightstand from top to bottom and behind. I have looked every logical place that I can think of, even my purse.

They were promoted as spiderweb scissors and something about being witchy.... They are living up to their name. They have to be here somewhere. I just can't remember where.....I WANT MY SCISSORS!!!!

Wait....I am starting to sound like Tessie. That can't be good....

Back to the workroom. Are you getting tired of it yet? I know that I am.
This morning I purchased some more of the plastic drawers from Walmart. I took the modular organizer out of the corner of the closet and moved it to the computer room. I am trying to decide if I would like an actual bookcase in there or not. So far, I am leaning towards yes. I always need more book space.

This is the status of the closet now. I am pretty much done with it. The drawers in the foreground, on the left are replacing the units that I moved. Believe it or not, they are smaller, but hold a lot more. It's a puzzlement.....

At least someone found her scissors while I was cleaning. Well maybe not so much found "her" scissors as grabbed mine, saying, "These are way too small for you and I need them."

If you look closely, the ones on the left are too small for her also. They are for half inch people....

The ones on the right are just metal minis and have to be finished. The ones between her feet are the prize. That pair is from England and they really work!! It is starting to look like more of my scissors are going to disappear shortly. At least this time I will know where they went and how to find them..,,,

I am going to go finish the workroom, so that you won't have to hear about it anymore. While I am working, I am going to ponder the mystery of the missing witch scissors.

See you tomorrow.

Are you sure you actually, really truly received the scissors? After all living with Tessie would be enough to drive a saint to drink - which may in turn lead to hallucinations... ;)

Stop looking for them and they will turn up.
I am proud of you for sorting your stash...........

I know exactly the feeling...... my husband dried salad this afternoon and in the evening I was looking for the salad spinner. We needed half an hour to find it. My husband had put it under the desktop, because the phone was ringing, when he was drying it...... surely the last place to look for it LOL
I hope your scissors will turn up SOON!

Katie said...

I like seeing your craft space evole from messy into Neat and Organized! It might motivate me to do mine:)

Those are tiny scissors!!
And good luck finding yours! (I've been looking for a skull all day that I think the cats took off with! LOL)

Caseymini said...

Nope. I don't drink. After this morning, I may just start! I just thought of another place to look! Gotta go look!

Did you look in the chair cushions? It could have slipped inside being so thin.

The tiny scissors that work are amazing!

I too am reorganising with drawers from walmart, makes life so much easier.

I hope you find the scissors soon, they look really neat.

Caseymini said...

Dale, I never had them in a chair. I was sitting on the bed with my feet up. I have torn the bedding apart twice. No luck.

Kathi said...

I sure hope you don't find your scissors by sitting on the pointy end of them! Stepping on them might be bad too. Be careful!
I bought some of those Walmart stacking drawers about three weeks ago. They are still empty!

dale said...

Ugh! That is frustrating. :(

I think Little Blue Cat must have them! If you find them, maybe you'll find her too. If ya do, let me know ASAP!
Hugs,
Lainie;~)

Caseymini said...

Kathi, did anybody tell you that the object of buying the drawers is to fill them with things until they are running over so that you can buy more?LOL

Walter is now telling me to buy another pair....As soon as I do, I know that I will find them. He says that I can always give the extras to April. I am going to wait a couple of days at least.

Desde luego es un horror perder algo que sabes está cerca de ti y no lo ves. Las encontrarás, seguro.
Ya te falta poco para terminas de ordenar en esos cajones. Besos Clara
