    Oh I am so sorry. Please take a long break, and have a cup of tea to come you down before you rip all those seams out. God bless.

    I too am familiar with Jack the Ripper, he is always there when I need him and also when I don't need him. Like everyone else I know what it is like to have to unpick repeated sometimes the same piece and it can get annoying. I go and do something else for a while then go sit and watch my program and unpick the piece, then start sewing again.

    I cannot keep a seam ripper in sight, but I always have a pair of small scissors, manicure scissors work great, running around lose. Have also used a razor blade that is in a box knife, I don't know if the box knifes are still made. Good luck and remember we all feel for you.

    I have done this. I have a ripper for capal tunnel. They work great. Used to use the razor blade. Until late one night and that was the end of sewing for a couple of days.

    I use a scaple.. works great.. but you do have to be careful.. I can see why surgeons use them, they're sharp.. but if you can get it just right you can rip a seam with one zip!

    Eyebrow razors? YIKES! I usually just ignore mine, and they're pretty substantial - just don't like the pain....but maybe I'll pick some up to use for my (frequent) un-sewing

    How come I could give birth 7 times with no meds, but can't stand having my eyebrows done? Even "threading" which my dd told me didn't hurt as much, really DID!
    I learned a trick years ago for dealing with the family unibrow. Take a wrung out, hot wash cloth, (tap water! No microwaves here ladies...), and hold it to the eyebrow area for a couple minutes. You can now pluck pain free. It takes a few minutes longer for my sister to feel no pain, so adjust to you. You're welcome. Anything I can do to prevent pain, is my pleasure. ;)

    P. S. Do not do this just before you leave the house. I did once and spent the first half hour of a party explaining why my eyebrows were bright red. (After that, so was my face!) LOL!

    I use moisturizer all the time and have found that there is literally no pain when I do mine with the tweezers. I must be used to it now so there is NO pain at all. The moisturizer must soften and open the pores so you can remove the hair.
