Borrowers perhaps?

You've heard a similar story before...Mid December I "lost" my Tail Feathers BOM....first 3 blocks mostly embroidered & stitched together ...gone...nowhere to be found. My sewing bag was searched & searched again...the house was inspected over & over...friends who had been here searched their houses too! To help quieten the wailing even DD searched. Nowhere to be found!!!!
Until the other day, I got the urge to check the bag that project was in....and there it was sitting on top...neatly folded...am I going mad or do I have Borrowers? ( The kids have voted for mad!)
Does this happen to you too?

oh so I am not the only one who misplaces stuff then!!! .... excepting I haven't found mine (remember my swap parcels that went MIA before Christmas too - maybe I will find them when we eventually take all of our stuff out of storage???))

Things like that frequently happen in this apartment! I sorted a pile of scraps for my latest quilt the other day, then hunted everywhere for them. I'd only gone a put them back in the box when I tidied up!

Oh my gosh -- The Borrowers. I read that about a million years ago! It's always fun to find something that has been misplaced.

Did you happen to find my thimble? It hasn't surfaced as of yet! Perhaps it's at your house! Those Sprites are mischievous. So glad you found your blocks! Cheers!
