Stoopid things I've done recently:

1. ran over the cord of the brand new vacuum cleaner at work and had to use the electrical tape on it.

2. spilled half a bottle of Fray Check on my brand new shorts last night. At least it wasn't the sofa I was sitting on. Here's how you remove Fray Check. I'll let you know how it works.

3. lost two very small #12 Quilting Betweens needles on the sofa (see number 2). I'm hoping that they are either buried in the pin cushion or in the vacuum cleaner (not the same one as number 1).


  1. You should stick with me--when I was working at a local garden center, twice (TWICE!) I stepped back while raking leaves and broke a PVC bent spigot head in the watering system! The same one. These things are quite typical for me! Love the little heart quilt.

  2. Sometimes these thinks happens...
    today I've lost a leaf of my baltimora....and I haven't more fabric so I have to do them again 8 leaves with another fabric.
    ciao ciao

    thanks for the link.

  3. I can't picture you doing that! You always seem so under control. Now, me...yep, I could believe it in a hot minute! You always bring a smile to my face when I stop by here. I love your blog! Connie :)

  4. Ooops . . . I hope you find the needles without getting hurt.

  5. I've had those days. Let's hope you don't sit on the needle and that the fray check comes out of the shorts! And hey -- it could have been worse!

  6. I hate losing pins and needles. Unfortunately the dogs usually find them and they are caught in their fur or stuck in a paw or foot! Not good!

  7. Oh, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who does these sorts of things *s*
    As for the missing needles - part of my sewing kit is a small magnet that I use to find those elusive little devils. I wouldn't want to have a doggy step on one . . . or worse, have Hubby sit on one *ouch*

  8. Oh dear Paula. I think you should go back to bed and wake up on the other side!
