    I enjoyed reading thru all of these and yes....I have done a bunch of them....including cutting the corner of my finger off when helping a friend cut some strips....first thing she said when she realized how bad I had cut it was...how much blood did you get on my fabric. My answer was "None!!" I grabbed my finger and moved away from the fabric....none got on anything....good first aid training! I thought of a few while I was reading, but right now I can't remember which I read and which were new ones....ow well....happy quilting all!!

    If you keep a small waste can on the floor next to your sewing area, check it for quilt blocks that fell into it while you were sewing.

    I threw the last 6" by 9" FUSSY cut piece of fabric for a quilt away because I did not check the waste can. Just bagged it up and put it in the trash can. Of course, I discovered my loss the day AFTER trash pick up!

    I had to make up that piece by more fussy cutting and a once in a life time absolute match of sewing two fussy cut pieces together to make the block. The last block is also different from all the others, but is so well disguised that the eye just wanders past it and assumes it's a match. You can't tell the block is sewn from two scraps unless you look at the back, either.

    My personal fav: At least 75% of the time, the problem with the machine is the carbon based unit sitting in front of it. (true for me anyway)
    Additionally, using sailor's language is seldom helpful and guaranteed to shock the neighbor who just wandered in to say "hi" and see the progress on the latest project.

    #28 might get cross stitched someday, and a few others besides.

    what a giggle!

    thanks!

    I saved this post until I had time to read it and enjoy. All so funny, and all so true. We've all done most of them. had to share in regard to #s 13 and 14--I sewed like crazy one day, and decided to pop outside and take a walk to stretch my legs and my mind. Part way up the road I met my friend in her car. She rolled the window down and asked if I had been husking corn. Yeah, I had a "wee" bit of thread attached

    Thanks for the laughs. I can relate to most of them. I am suffering from BSTC today.

    I see that this was started some time ago but so much fun! I can ID with most of it. I will add: don't empty the trash until the project is complete. One quilt I had to retrieve the scraps in the trash to piece together the last block. No more of the fabric (a yummy batik) was to be had anywhere.
