    I'll have to back out of this one! don't have the main tool for it namely a sewing machine.
    Getting pricked with needles is just an occupational hazard. When you prick yourself or accidentally nick yourself with scissors you just put on a bandage so you don't bleed on the fabric and keep sewing. If you burn yourself with an iron you run cold water on the burn for a few minutes and go back to sewing. Not a big deal, really. I'm such a klutz that I manage to have at least one little mishap on most projects.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    EDIT: Sona you shouldn't back out, I do hand stitching myself as I don't have a machine at the moment, it's actually therapeutic.

    Sona is weak sauce. All talk, no action.

    I can't hide a sewing machine. What if my mom finds it, or my sister in law. I'll never be able to live it down. The risk of getting caught out weighs the benefit.

    Anything else, and I will do it. This is too girly. If I was a woman I would have done it.

    Which leads to this tagline: "Only a real man has the courage to be a woman!"

    Sew by hand, with a needle. Do it on the sly. Beat up anyone who challenges you. You can do it!

    That's what I'm seeing.


    I sew, and I'm not afraid to admit it. It takes a real man, one that is secure in his masculinity, to do things that are considered "girly".

    Haha, I take it you have gender issues then, Sona? I've sewn before (not an entire garment, though). It's really no big deal. You do realize there are male tailors, right?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
