    I am normally a very tidy person and my sewing room is really neat...but last night having sewn a border of 1"squares round a crib quilt...I went to bed leaving bits everywhere...unable to sleep thought I would get up and finish it....sewed another edge...pressed it...then stepped back onto a small open pair of scissors that were on the floor, hidden by scraps...which dug themselves nicely into my foot.....fortunatly the cut is quite small...but very painful......
    moral of my story....should it be 'tidy up in future' or just 'wear shoes' ?

    I'd wear shoes. Even when you are extremely tidy it's still very easy to run a straight pin or needle in your foot. They seem to hide until you are about to step down.

    I wear crocks when I sew just for reasons like that. I have had many pins and needles stuck in my feet.
