    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.

    Shoes, definately. That sounds very painful. I have stepped on pins, but fortunately, for me, my DH is very good at finding lost pins. Just kidding, but he seems to find pins lost on the floor much faster than I do. He thinks I do it on purpose.

    Well I hate to wear shoes, even driving LOL
    Keep track of your scissors?
    Hope the pain is gone soon and doesn't slow you down.

    I put on shoes when I get dressed for the day. (I prefer Toms shoes for everyday wear. Love them) No one in the family goes barefoot in the house, I never started that with the kids unless it was muddy, wet shoes coming in. I told them to use commons sense and their manners about shoes in the house.

    I always wear sandles in the house. When I'm sewing I kick off the right sandle to run my foot pedal.

    I don't wear shoes in the house in the summer. I am very careful about sharp things as I have carpet. If I drop a pin or needle, out comes my magnet and I find it immediately. I am also careful about putting my scissors and other tools back where they belong when I use them. I hate having to look for things. Fabric? That's a different story, LOL. There are scraps and pieces all over until a project is finished.
