Newton's Law of Crafting

As I am here sitting at my desk browsing through Pinterest trying to figure out ways to save my business and gain more fans, I realize that everything I need is here until I actually need it and then at that point the Gremlins have run away with whatever it is. 

So, I have decided to come up with Newton's Laws of Crafting. Here is a brief intro on Sir Issac Newton to bring everyone up to speed. Bet you didn't expect this post to be educational!

Sir Issac Newton (1642-1727) was a Natural Philosopher and Physicist, he came up with three laws during his lifetime. 
Newton's First Law (Inertia) says that an object at rest, stays at rest as well as an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by a external force.
Newton's Second Law says that a force that is applied on an object equals the rate of change of its momentum with time. Force equals mass times acceleration.
Newton's Third Law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Newton also came up with the theory of gravitation.

Now, onto the regularly scheduled post :)
Newton's Laws of Crafting:
First Law- Everything is there until you actually need it and then it is nowhere to be found.
Second Law- You will run out of thread either on the spool or bobbin 3/4 the way through a project. Which will also be right after you come back from a trip to the store.
Third Law- When working on a quilt, Wal-Mart will run out of the scrap pack you need to finish. (Mine has been out of the same one for six months)
Fourth Law- You will realize that what you needed to purchase at the craft store was on sale last week, for 50 percent off, and will not go back on sale in the near future.
Fifth Law- The craft show you really wanted to do quit taking applications a few days ago.
Sixth Law- When you are trying to finish items the night before a festival, all sewing machines in your presence will go on a hiatus and refuse to work.
Seventh Law- No matter what the forecast is, if you plan to do a festival in the summer you will encounter a monsoon with hurricane force winds.
Eighth Law- When you sit down to work on a project, or find one you want to do, you will have all the materials except one.

That is all I can think of for now. Let us know in the comments if you have any to add.

Stay Crafty,
