Raise your hand if you are a perpetual misplace-r of measuring tapes!
No? Just me?
Well, I am the owner of three...count them, THREE measuring tapes. Ya know, the ones for measuring whilst sewing and such? Yeah. Three.
However, when I need one, I cannot find one! Pitiful isn't it? It is, just say so.
Out of three, I have no more. I have lost every single one. It's odd, because I use them so often and then I have this thing of putting them around my neck and completely forgetting they are there.
Then you know what I do? Figure out it's still there (thankfully before going to the school pick up) and put it down where I am certain I will remember to grab it and put it away.
Yeah, I somehow never put it back where it belongs and, hence, have lost every.single.one.
SO, I finally broke down and bought a new one. I did. And then guess what? Less than two weeks later...it has vanished!
I know, the brand new one! I went to grab it to measure my niece for her super awesome (all designed on her very own) pumpkin princess costume and I could not find it!
However, while looking for something else (completely unrelated to sewing) I found one of my other ones! My only blue one. My favorite one.
Guess what I did? NO, I didn't lose it....I promptly put it where it belongs in my craft studio. Then, I moved it and forgot where I put it.
Seriously, there must be a group for this type of thing...
