Confession time

Well dear bloggy friends, there are a few things I need to get off my chest. A few confessions, shall we say, that I need to get out in the open. I don't want you to have the wrong image of me, so I will lay it all out for you, and after this post you can decide if you still want to be my friend. Here goes:

1. I used to iron on my kitchen counter. Yes, amidst the crumbs, butter dish, and, apparently, the booze.



But no, I don't sip on the Malibu rum while I sew, in case you were wondering.

2. I recently upgraded to a better ironing station: my floor. I just about burn the sides of my calves now instead of the linoleum counter top (*crossing my fingers on getting that security deposit back*). WHY didn't I just buy a tall, standing ironing board? The good Lord only knows. Ok, actually I do know- the small one was cheaper.

3. I use wrapping paper to make patterns. Christmas wrapping paper, mind you. It actually seems to work quite well, except it rolls up a lot from being on the roll.



4. I stay up til all hours of the night sewing sometimes. I hope I don't keep my upstairs neighbors up. It's not like I am ever really pressed for time unless I am making someone a gift (but let's face it, most things I make are for myself!), but I just keep saying to myself, "I'll go to bed after I do this." And then I do it and forget and just keep going.

5. I throw my extra threads right on the floor. Sometimes when I am done a project, I just leave the mounds of thread and scraps there on the floor for a few days and allow and my cats, hubby and myself to continue to track it all over the house. I find threads in my bed, on my husband, in the shower, and on the cats. A simple trash can would really solve that problem.

Ok, phew, I'm glad I got those off my chest. There's no going back, you know all my secrets. Do you still love me?? Now it's your turn- 'fess up!! It doesn't have to be about sewing, but could be about blah household chores or other crafty things.
