STRESSED! Can't find new pattern....... oh no!

I thought it was about time to get back to the new pincushion pattern I've been working on and off this past year. But here's the thing...... I can't find the envelope that has all the pattern pieces and the directions I wrote out by hand as I worked on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I have 2 sewing rooms at 2 different houses. I'm at work so I've checked this one (no luck ) but now I have to go thru my main (meaning HUGE amount of supplies) room. I checked my computer to see when I last worked on writing the actual pattern directions in MS Publisher. That was back in July so the envelope could have gotten mixed in with so much other stuff. :(

As you can see this one is for an elephant. She's now on her pincushion base waiting for the cover picture along with her sister who's dressed slightly different and on another base.

I'm learning the hard way to keep track of things I'm working on. I did get the new larger version of the crocheted chatelaine done. The pictures have been taken and all the directions were kept with it as I work. Now comes re-writing all the directions in the original pattern and adding pics of the new one. I've also added another crocheted item to hang from the neck piece.

So if I can find the envelope I'll get working on the pattern. If not I'll just move onto the chatelaine.

BTW, I've uploaded the newest versions of most of my patterns at Etsy and Patternmart. I also reopened my store at Craftsy. They changed their rules and I was able to go back there. I only have a few things up now but you can get my free cloth basket pattern there instead of having to go to my tripod web site.
