I just got halfway through an entry on the entry form when my boss distracted me and I hit "submit" by accident! So...

I couldn't live without my seam ripper! Because it makes the recycling of old fabrics and zippers SO much easier... and because I don't yet get everything right first time!!

I'm right handed too!

I instantly thought of my seam ripper, I wish I didn't need it so much but one way or another I end up using it on every item I make.

I dream of the day that it stays put in the sewing box as I sail effortlessly through each project ;)

Another right hander here too.

I agree with Caroline, I couldn't manage without my seam ripper/quick unpick. Even when I know a pattern inside out, I ALWAYS go wrong somewhere! It's so frustrating, but would be so much worse without the quick unpick!

And I am right handed! Sorry I forgot to include that info!

Yet another right hander!
I couldn't live without my sewing machine - I use it every day

Tracey said...

You know my first thought was my seam ripper but I am always loosing it and have to live without it. But my sewing machine on the other hand ... well thats hard to loose because its always on its table ready to be used everyday!

Hmm, what could I not live without ?
I've had to make do without my machine on occasion, when its in for its service or when I broke my foot and couldn't operate the pedal. I use my stitch ripper more than I should and but as I am always misplacing it I have learned to be very careful with my embroidery scissors, so I can live without it if needs be.
The one thing I can't live without would probably be my thimble. I was taught to sew with one many years ago and now I find it impossible to complete any hand sewing task without it.
( While the information that I'm right handed is important for scissors it doesn't matter where thimbles are concerned! : ) )
