Extreme Sewing!

Don't you just love it when you're hand sewing and you're almost out of thread on your needle, but you're really close to the end of the seam? And you're thinking, "Should I tie off and re-thread? Or should I go for it?" And you decide to go for it and you're getting closer, but man, that thread is getting so short....and then! you did it! You're at the end and you even have enough to tie off with if you turn your needle Yay! Stitching queen! (Man, I'm good!)

  1. Yup, I do the same thing, but I'm not nearly as skilled/lucky as you! It usually ends with me having to take the needle out and tie a single knot by hand, hoping it will be good enough. Or, more likely, unthread the needle, lay it flat against the thread, wrap the thread around the needle twice, re-thread the needle, then pull the knot.

    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who lives dangerously (at least with respect to thread), but I often wonder if I'll ever learn my lesson!

  2. LOL Seems like it happens every single time!

  3. does anyone else also speed up when this happens as if I can stitch faster than the thread will run out?


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
