Anyone who sews, whether a dressmaker or a quilter, will know what this is. It’s as much a tool of the trade as needles and thread. Most people let out a groan as they reach for it. A necessary evil. A foreboder of error. For this is the seam ripper. The tool to undo a stitching mistake.
But maybe I should see it in a different way. I mean it does give me a chance to correct a mistake. Difficult to appreciate when it adds valuable time to a project, but some mistakes need to be amended.
Joining this up to the wonderful #AlphabetPhoto linky. My U is for unpicking. I tasked myself this week, to take a photo of a mundane object and make it slightly more likeable, or interesting, without distracting too much from it. What do you think? Did I do it? Or is everyone looking at the thread instead?
