Many of you that know me or follow my blog know that I stitch a lot on my commute to downtown Chicago each day to my day job as an accountant.
Over the years I've learned many lessons about seed beads, needles and working with white velvet while in a black business suit. (Click to read about my lessons...)
Today I learned a new lesson...
Today I was working on a wool applique project. Pretty simple, no seed beads, no shedding velvet. Or so I thought...
I was deep in thought while listening to an audio book and sitting in my aisle seat. I had finished a thread and it was time to rethread my needle. I pulled out my trusty spool of thread and purposefully yanked a long strand of thread from the spool when the spool flew out of my hand! It started to roll down the aisle! I quickly leaned out my leg as far as I could to try to stop it with my foot. But instead I kicked it even further down the aisle!!! Yikes! I need that spool to keep me busy on the rest of my commute to work and all the way home!
I quickly tried to jump from my seat while balancing my briefcase, purse, gloves, iPod and wool applique supplies while scurrying down the aisle. Of course I also tried to look graceful and nonchalant, but am guessing that I failed miserably at both of those.
I wonder what all the non-crafting commuters think of my antics?
