Losing it!

I'm losing it! Really! This past week I "lost" several items and no matter where or how long I searched I just couldn't find anything! Now, I pride myself with the knowledge that I'm one of those people who "has a place for everything" and "puts everything in it's place". I ALWAYS put whatever wherever it belongs - except this last week!! So, this week I searched in vain for buttons, Velcro (I need to continue with the purse construction - see above), jewellery, and even a bra (how the heck do you lose one of these?!) OK, stop laughing ladies, I was successful and  found all but the last item :), and I will let the girls loose and go braless for the rest of this end of summer weekend - YEAH!
I'm on the patio and trying valiantly to enjoy this last summer weekend morning. Although I had 4 glorious days off work I've been tres busy! Friday was driving around town picking people up, lunching out-of-town and shopping at the not-so-local big box fabric/discount store. For the local ladies I'm referring to L's M. Now, this warehouse has no AC and it was another stinking hot day. By the time we finally go to the cutting table I  was parched  so pulled out my mini bottle of water for a much needed sip, whereupon the B_ _ _ _ clerk informed me I was not allowed any water as, are you ready?, "Water stains fabric".
 REALLY?  since when??
I left with a better understanding how the students feel @ my library when we go out and tell them they can't eat in the library! I vow this year I will not be a food/water Nazi and patrol our hallowed halls for errant eaters!
Sat. a friend dropped over and we watched the PBS quilting shows together, then off for lunch. Another trip to the other local fabric store where I got some more faux suede (more purses), then cutting and sewing etc. Sunday the mater and her elderly friend were over for lunch, then more sewing. Guess what's on the agenda for today? More sewing. I have orders and so have set up a production line!!
Wish me luck!! TTFN
