    Well, barefoot all the time/everywhere used to be my mantra. Then diabetes...eventually doctor finally made me get my calluses trimmed off...(I cried, but did it..it took me over 50 years to develop those shoe leather feet)so now it is shoes..gotta behave...

    You sound like my 62 yr old sister.....when the Dr. asked if she does self exams of her breasts, she told him that if she had a lump, it would show! Love that! Marilyn[/quote]

    For the lump thing, I said the same thing to my doctor one time; if I found a lump I would harness it. He wasn't amused.

    I only put shoes on to go outside. My feet hate shoes and socks. One thrill for me in the wintertime is that I no longer have to wear boots for the snow and ice. We don't get any here in Florida. YEA!!!

    I am the same way, but the problem I am having with the no shoes is that the greyhound we adopted about 4 months ago, starts barking every time she hears/sees me put on my shoes - she thinks I am going to take her and her sister for a walk.

    Big dogs have big barks

    I have always gone bare foot but now wear shoes outside because am Diabetic and do not want to hurt feet but other than that shoes off at door. God made feet before shoes.

    I can maintain the speed of the sewing machine so much better. Glad I am not alone in this.

    Right shoe off. Left shoe varies. At home both shoes are off and I am in my socks. Have to feel the pedal.

    You're not odd at all. I have a pair of Sock Monkey slippers that I wear while sewing. I have to admit, I slip off the right one to "drive" the machine -- hard to feel the pedal otherwise.

    I never tried sewing without shoes on before, or slippers. I also never related that to the foot moving around on the floor. Hmmmmmmmm

    I'm with you on the bra thing. I figured I am past the age of caring if I sag a bit.
    Bra comes off first thing after dinner. I tell my husband I'm ready to go to Walmart! There are some funny videos I have seen about the way some people go to WM. So I guess with no shoes and no bra, I'm ready to go!

    Me....I can't sew with shoes on either. I put a spare pair of ballerina slippers in my large quilting carry tote so they're there when I need them!
