But, you know, I haven't been doing a whole lot of either of those things since the start of October, and even a little before then (though I did resub to SWTOR this past weekend). I've been sewing... a lot. Not just the things I have been sharing, but many many other things. Sewing to the point where even I don't think I could stitch another stitch... but I keep on stitching anyway. So you know that all I have on my mind is sewing... even if I probably need a break from it. Part of the reason I resubbed to swtor is to give me a reason to step away once I find time this upcoming deadline (Thursday, phew!).
So I figured, why not confess my biggest "sewing confessions"?! Things that I should be ashamed of, but continue to do anyway...
Onto the confessions!
You know when they tell you not to do this, because you could accidentally swallow one? Well, it's true... believe me, and I don't know why I still have this habit having nearly swallowed them many times before-- even one time recently, when I attempted to speak Klingonese while draping onto my dressform... I was caught up in the passion of a particular space battle...
I should be really ashamed of this one, because it's one thing I actively try to advocate... but the truth is, I forget to change out the needle in my machines more often than someone so loud about this matter should.
I am a night owl under normal circumstances, so this wouldn't be so bad... except lately I have been pushing myself beyond my threshold, only because I just want to be done. Another poor choice is the poor lighting I have in my room, so I try and not to sew during the night... but that's hard to do as someone who is normally most active at night.
Probably my biggest and baddest confession, I can't always be bothered to change the tension of my machine. Jersey? Chiffon? Denim?? ... it's set where it is, and unless my machine starts sassing me, then and only then will I tinker with it.
That's that. Shocked? Maybe? Not really? Heh. In my defense, I never had someone to teach me sewing etiquette... I just had my books and my wits.
Feel free to comment with your own geeky or seamster confessions!
