Further proof…

That I should NOT be quilting when tired:

IMG_8723

I sewed myself right to the quilt.  My husband had to come unpick me (after taking a photo…a true bloggers husband) because I couldn’t unpick myself with my left hand.

P.S.  Now don’t you go being all jealous of my sexy quilting gloves…they are my favorite.

Bwahaha! I did exactly the same thing last week but no husb to rescue me ... I thought I was going to have to gnaw through my arm to escape.

Melissa said...

Oh.. oh that's not funny at all *snicker* I've done that same thing before. If it makes you feel better, I once accidentally locked my infant daughter in the car while wearing a t-shirt that said "Real Geinus" on it. :)

Holly said...

I super-glued my hand to the kitchen counter once. Exactly the same thing....only different.

Libby said...

Those gloves are HOT!

Coffee just came shooting out my nose! Sorry to be laughing at your expense, but that is just too darned funny! Can't say as I've ever sewed myself to my machine, but I've done plenty of OTHER things just as silly :-) Thank goodness hubby was around at the right time!

susan said...

Too funny. Thanks for retaining your sense of humour an posting the photo.

i like orange, too! said...

That. Is. Awesome. And I can laugh because I've also done it before!

Heartsdesire said...

Very sexy gloves. Sorry you sewed yourself to your quilt, but glad you posted the pic. That is just too funny.

Keep Stitchin' said...

I did that a few weeks ago! Then yesterday I quilted the (folded) top of the quilt into the other stitching and had to rip it out.
I agree, don't attempt when tired!

Jackie said...

I have to say that is the first time that I have seen someone sew themselves into a quilt! I have actually pinned myself to one, but never sewed. Looking forward to meeting you in a few day!!

Staci said...

Oh, I have done that so many times! LOL! Good blogger's husband!
Your quilt is SO CUTE!

Candice said...

Awesome- so true- I sewed my finger to a quilt yesterday too :) And I LOVE those gloves- every pair I try don't work! What brand are they???

Leila said...

LOL!
I'm worried now, no husband to come to the rescue...wonder if I should teach my 5 yr old how to use the seam ripper hmmm... maybe not ;-)

Flying Blind... said...

It must have been like '27 hours' the movie for a moment there!

verobirdie said...

Glad you did not hurt yourself! Once, i did ses through m'y finger, so i was a bit worried when i saw the title, but when i saw the picture, i had to laugh...

Justcallmeblessed said...

That's' hilarious! At least it was just your sleeve and not your arm!

matate10 said...

better your sleeve and not your finger! Great photography by hubby BTW.

Helen said...

(Chuckle!) How far did you stitch before you realised? I'm impressed your hubby knows how to use a seam ripper - how much did he laugh when he saw you?! Although I've never stitched myself to a quilt I've made enough mistakes to know that I should never cut or do fabric maths when I'm tired!

Katy said...

that's way too funny!

Elsa said...

hahahaha ~ thanks so much for the laugh!
when I was a little girl of 5 my Mom showed me how to sew with a needle and thread. I made clothes for my dolls and remember sewing what I was sewing onto my dress or whatever I may be wearing! it would make me cry.
glad it was only your sleeve ~

Julie Phillips, aka Julieloveslucy SCS said...

So sorry but that is cute and funny!

Hugs
Julie

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

Oh no, better your sleeve than skin! My mom did that years ago.

Jo @ a life in lists said...

That's hilarious! One of the few quilting errors I HAVEN'T made yet :)

Jeanne W. said...

You are funny! Thanks for the laugh!!

beth lehman said...

LOVE IT!!

Nancy said...

You really get into your work! ;^)

Manda said...

Haha! Good job your husband was there to rescue you!

Rossana said...

Great! I made the same thing: I sewed my right glove! I had to cut the glove! Welcome in "The Sewn Gloves Club"!

Merrie said...

Oh this is so funny! I'm glad for your sake that it was just your clothing and not your hand or your arm...like I had happen to me back in 1992 when I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning finishing my sons spider costume for his kindergarten Halloween parade. At 2am, with a loud crunch! the sewing macine stopped and wouldnt budge. It took me at least two minutes to figure out why and also why I couldn't move my hand....the needle had gone completely through bone and I had to unscrew the needle with my free hand, then wake up my poor husband to cut the barb off the needle and then pull it out of my middle finger bone with plyers.
The tetnus shot did hurt way more than the accident though!

Venus de Hilo said...

Too funny! Thanks for sharing. Haven't done that, but have logged so many other mishaps I now try to stay out of the sewing room during "the error hour" (which is often far longer than an hour, mostly occurs during late afternoon, but is ANY time I am tired and inattentive).

Leigh the sewing diva said...

awesome!! something i've yet to manage, but give me time! lol

Melissa said...

I am cracking up! By the way, I love your sewing gloves, I bet they are way cheaper than the kind you get from the quilting store too! Looks like it will be another beautiful quilt!

Live a Colorful Life said...

Yikes, Merrie's comment just made me cringe. I'm sorry about your sewing escapade. But I sure like the fabric that I see there!

Mari Angeles Iglesias said...

Me great grace what has happened. :)
It was very funny, thanks for sharing.

Greetings from Granada, Spain, from espiralcaracola.blogspot.com

PS. I also use gardening gloves for quilting.

J.R. said...

I stitched through my finger when I was quilting my last one.

Willing Hearts - Busy Hands said...

Too funny! Sure glad it was just your sleeve. You do have cute Atlas gloves for quilting. My husband loves his Atlas gloves. I love my red Fons and Porter quilting gloves, too, and feel empowered when I have them on.

Brenda said...

Better your shirt than your finger!

Leslie said...

i love pictures of real life moments!!! good thing he was there to remove you from your quilt!

Amy said...

Hahahaha! Sounds like something I would do!

Bravo to your husband for be so helpful! It would of taken my husband an hour to unpick me if I did that. The first 45 minutes would be spent laughing at me followed by 15 minutes figuring out how to unpick me.

Amanda Murphy said...

It is only a matter of time before this happens to all of us. Luckily your husband was home or you would have had to haul your sewing machine everywhere you went! Thanks for the funny post!

Cathy said...

That is just hilarious and I have the twin gloves to yours. I don't feel quite silly now!

Kim-A Creative Spirit said...

I laughed out load... soooo glad there was a pic....

shez said...

Ha Ha thats funny,have a great mothers day

Esch House Quilts said...

Too funny! I haven't sewed myself to my quilt, but I've done plenty of other goofy things while quilting. Glad you're OK and hubby was able to rescue you :)

Elisa Black said...

That is too funny!! And I laugh with you, not at you, b/c I do klutzy stuff like that all the time. Hope you were able to catch up on your sleep! Happy Mother's Day!

Lucky-1 said...

LOL, that is a true blogger's hubby for sure. Glad it wasn't flesh sewn to the quilt. Blood is hard to remover from fabric....

HUGGLES
Lucky.

P.S. So love your quilting gloves, mine are green ones from the supermarket.

Mary Jo said...

Funny!! I haven't done that one yet - well, probably because I don't have the gloves, or I'm sure I would!

Laurel said...

Thanks for the good laugh. :)

prsd4tim2 said...

LOL. Thanks for sharing. And yes, I've done this, but luckily, it was my left sleeve so I could unpick myself. And I was too embarrassed to tell anyone about it until just now. Thanks for helping us all not feel so bad about the crazy things we've done.

tracy_a said...

Oh dear!

Kristen said...

LOL, you poor child! :) How do you like your quilting foot? I have a 430 and I am indecisive about the purchase. I would love your thoughts on it!

Val Campbell said...

That is hilarious! I've sewed my finger, but never my shirt. Classic!

Crystal Stanworth said...

:o) very awesome! and you obviously have a great husband too!

Christy said...

Thank you so much for sharing the "oops" moments. I had one yesterday. I was trying to get a bunch of pieced fabric plus a border to equal a certain length for pillow shams, and I started thinking how proud I was for remembering to subtract the 1/4 inch from each side of the pieced part. Only after cutting the borders, sewing them on, and then coming up 1/2 inch short did I remember that I also should have subtracted 1/4 inch from each side of the BORDER fabric too. Ugh. Glad to know I'm not the only one who does dumb things in the name of quilting.

Ina said...

I would have left the block where it was and said I did it on purpose! ;0

VickiT said...

Oh no! How long did your husband laugh at you? Too funny but only because you didn't stitch your arm down too. I'm glad it was only the shirt.

Blue Is Bleu said...

Oh my grief! I clicked on this saying to myself "Please tell me she didn't sew her finger / hand!"

My husband wouldn't have been able to take a picture or unpick me because he'd be laughing too hard to hold still.

One Shabby Chick said...

too funny :-) And yes, I think I'd be just like Audrie's husband...in fact it took me a while to type this cause I kept laughing - I can totally see myself doing this exact thing :-)

Barb said...

Snicker, snort...I've done the same thing while doing hand embroidery--only I attached my skirt to the back of my project ;-D

Kim Apted said...

We've all had moments like that! I've accidentally stitched things to my skirt when hand sewing or basting not once but a *few* times!

If you're able to reply, I'd love to know which collection that great fabric with the green octagons is?

~Niki~ said...

Hey, I'm having a giveaway to a quilt shop if you wanna pop by :)
Happy mother's day!

The Conservationist said...

Hehe...I use bright yellow dishwashing gloves, and I love them...but I never let anyone see me quilting! I like yours though - they look like they'd have better circulation.

That's almost as bad as when I was cutting fabric and took off part of my sleeve with the rotary cutter. Sigh...at least this was reversible lol!

Loved the last two posts. Just too funny. Have a Happy Mother's Day!

mujus said...

:)))) That's hilarious... and cute. Thanks for sharing :)

trudys_person said...

Hahaha! I've done that ... also sewn through the tip of the gloves, just missing my finger or thumb ... be careful! ;-)

ilovedolly said...

LOL makes me feel a bit less dumb - last week when tired I sheared off the tip of my finger with the rotary cutter. Sigh. Dumb.

Sew Create It - Jane said...

LOL That's Funny! Good thing someone was in the house!!

Crystal Hendrix said...

SO jealous man!! Those babies will be in my dreams tonight!!! LOL LOVE IT!!! Happy Mothers day!

Laura said...

YIKES. Close call. I have sewn through my finger twice. Still don't know how it happened!!! I always though people who have done something like that must not have all thier marbles. Now I know how fast it can happen.

Jenny said...

That is too funny! I would have left the shirt in the machine and gone to bed! :)

The AfterCraft said...

No quilting past 11pm!! Or life decisions!!

Jennifer @ Stitchin' Thyme said...

Funny! My husband would have done the same, insisting I get a picture for the blog!

a little bit biased said...

Oh that is too funny. I am so glad it wasn't your finger or something. I've heard stories...you had me scared there for a minute. :)

Kristen said...

That is just plain funny right there I don't care who you are :)

parenting articles said...

hahahaha. this is really funny!;)

Melissa said...

Love it! LOL I did that once hand quilting. My DH was in the hospital and I was hand quilting a small project and he asked me to get him some ice chips, and I went to stand up and my project was sewn on to my pants. Yes, I walked to the room to get ice with it still attached to my leg. ;-)

sonia said...

I'm happy to see that you too make mistakes. I thought it was only me! Thanks for sharing

J. Thomas said...

That's hilarious! And that's so what my boyfriend would do.

KerryQ said...

Wow, 81 comments! Either people love a good laugh (thank you - I needed it!) or they love knowing that someone who makes gorgeous things (and has a clean house with little kids!) can also be totally human! Very refreshing. I just pulled an all nighter last weekend making my daughter's first communion dress, and finished the sash seconds before leaving for church. It's a real tight ship around here. (Not.)
