iPhone-O-Gram! Call it thread play??

Yes, Doctor E, I am a quilter! Could it be the thread adhered to my socks that gave it away!!? Lol!!

Ok, I was really embarrassed when I took off my shoes for my evaluation and there was a huge thread ball in the top of my sock!

So what do I do? Grab the camera to document of course! Now you can laugh WITH me!!

  1. I'm always afraid that there would be a piece of thread hanging off my rear end and nobody will tell me..

  5. Batting lint has an affinity for black yoga pants, too. We don't need secret handshakes to recognize each other!

  9. FOTFROLOL this is just so funny...I often find my sponge in the freezer--who knew? We all are so intense with our crafts, our minds whirring away on that project...it's why I find bits and scraps of fabric all over the rugs in the whole house.....we just really get into it....Julierose :-)))

  11. That is just a sign that you get wrapped up in your work. : )
    Many years ago I was in a local fabric store and an elderly friend and quilter was just checking out. She needed a little more change for her purchase and reached into her pocket and instead of coins pulled out a handful of large thumbtacks--the kind you use on the old wooden quilting frames. We laughed so hard! The cashier said, "Now there is a true quilter."

  12. I have to laugh because my students use to find thread hanging on me all the time. They would laugh because they knew I had been sewing before school.
    My black yoga pants carry thread everywhere with me. I can't leave home without it.

    I know what you are saying Bonnie..it happens to all of us. I stand in the vestibule of church weekly while being inspected by hubby. I'm always running back for a "few more stitches" before leaving home and I have it all over my sweater and once even in my hair..that's okay. I don't want the cure. He won't let me go down the aisle w/ him till I have been "cleaned up".

  15. One night I was sewing at 5:15pm and then realized I was usher at church. I had my pants on and zoomed out of the house and as I was listening to sermon I saw threads all over my pants and I had to serve communion next. Now when I saw I have my sweat pants on and then change to a clean pair of pants when I go out of the door.

  16. I love it. My doctor says she can ignore almost anything if it is clean. The socks and thread are both clean therefore no harm no foul.

  19. Can't escape the thread snips when you're a quilter!!

  20. It's an occupational hazard for the quilter. Though I don't think any stray threads have ever infiltrated my shoes, my clothes always have a few!

  21. I can relate. I ran off to a meeting after snipping seams for a deni rag quilt and oh, the comments I got!

  22. I once saw a bumper sticker that read, "you can always tell a quilter by the threads she wears". I could really identify with that!

    Good one Bonnie! I worked as a bank teller before I retired and often came back from lunch with needles/thread in the front of my blouse or my thimble on. Made for interesting conversation.

    Very funny Bonnie. Looked like it was the design of your sock. The owner of our local sewing shop used to say if someone stared or commented on your crooked or bulky clothing seams, tell 'em you bought it that way! ...or, they were too close! Stephani in TX (Tomazec@aol.com)

  28. My 87 year old mother worked in a sewing factory many years ago and I remember how her clothes were covered with threads at the end of the day. When I finish a sewing marathon and look down and see the threads I remember that.
