Tip of the Day

So here are a couple tips for today...

1. Don't try to embroider while watching a foreign film with subtitles.  Bad things happen, and it's usually to the embroidery.

2. Don't embroider in bed.  I seem to be missing a needle and I'm a bit frightened as to where it may have gone.  Don't worry, I'm sure I'll find it - I just prefer to not find it the way I usually find needles and pins. (Remember, I am the one who sewed a pin into the side seam of my dress and I had to be rescued from it).

I laugh with you, not at you! You can't read subtitles and sprang, either. patterns get all wanky when you try...

Oh my goodness! Tell me about it!
I usually put on a movie I've seen a hundred times (but still love) when I do embroidery. Either that or mindless TV that I don't care that much about. I've had to rip out a whole section about 4 inches square, one little stitch at a time because I was just one stitch off. And yeah, it was THE stitch that made all the difference. Sigh.

Okay, sewing a pin in your garment? EEEEEEEEEK! Now I'm skeered and watch me do it with my Roman stuff. LOL

Well, I haven't sewn a pin in my dress for some time now (knock on wood). It was my first piece of garb, which was a little embarassing being fairly new to the SCA and having to have one of my new SCA friends go up my dress to help get the pin out. :)
