Things that scare me

Seeing that Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I would create a (not so) spooky list of things that randomly scare me (and may or may not be sewing related).

1. Buttons. Dude, the whole button hole making thing scares me.
2. Sewing knits. Double needles. Shudder.
3. Spiders bigger than a nickel. 'Nuff said.
4. Pinworm
5. Sewing with knits.
6. Toddlers on sugar highs
7. Man colds
8. Car repairs
9. That bad smell in the refrigerator you just can't find.
10.  Paper cuts. Dude, they hurt like a mofo.
11. Pleated pants
12. Socks with sandals
13. Those socks that have toes separated. I'm sorry. My toes were meant to touch each other.
14. Bugs with lots of legs.
15. My sewing machine breaking.

Care to add to the list?


  1. Buttons aren't that hard. Just takes a little practice. I guess I haven't done the double needle thing so I don't know to be afraid...

    Really, traffic around here scares the bej****s out of me. Too many college-aged kids hotrodding around with their phones in their hands. I was literally behind a girl the other day at the traffic light who was busy texting. The light changed and she DIDN'T EVEN LOOK UP - just drove on down the road still looking at her lap. THAT'S scary!

  2. Sewing. period. Set me down in front of a sewing machine and the hair on the back of my neck stands on end. Ha Ha
