I'd never heard of that before, but I sure know what it's like!

Oh Babe! I feel you! I hate having to rip out stitches. When I was making my granddaughters sun-dress While sewing on the appliqué I happened to catch some of the skirt fabric and had to rip it all out. irritating :-(

Well, it's funny NOW!!! Baby brother will be 41 this week, I've had time to get over it!

And he did get his bib, complete with bunny applique', I think Mom has it stashed in a box somewhere.

The first time I tried to sew (on a treadle sewing machine my mother had--I was 4), I managed to put the needle through my index finger...I've gotten a bit better at sewing since then, but not much! At least I don't sew my finger to the item I'm sewing these days.
