i grew up watching my momma sew...
she always had a mouth full of straight pins
and i have followed in her foot steps.
this probably isn't the smartest thing to do,
but it's habit and nothing bad has happened to
me yet... until today.
i was working on a sweater refashion (more on that later).
see my pretty green sweater that is way too big?
i used safety pins to fit it then started to sew,
taking the safety pins out as i went...
not taking time to close them...
and putting them, you guessed it,
in my mouth.
i did not feel anything amiss until i went to pull
the safety pins out of my mouth and one would not come.
