Non-Pinners of the world Unite!
Some of you WOYWW'ers may have noticed recent comments by Lunch Lady Jan & myself about our refusal to pin & tack whilst sewing! To be honest, until Jan posted a comment about not doing it, I thought I was the only rebel in this department. I hate doing it, I really do. Takes three times as long to do anything- pin it, tack it, remove pins, sew it, remove tacking- and I always got some tacking stuck inside my machine sewing- I just could not be bothered. I remember we had a sewing teacher who said you could machine sew with the pins still in place,and without tacking, as long as the pins were at right angles to the line you were sewing- that way the needle slid over the pins. Really? I tried that, I could not count how many needles I've broken that way. So now I defiantly do not pin!!! Anyway, last week Jan said we ought to have a No Pinners badge for our sidebar. So I passed the idea over to my IT department (Beloved Hubby), who is a bit of a whiz at Photoshop, and here is the result. A badge that can be proudly displayed in your sidebar, if you too are proud to be a Pinning/Tacking Rebel. So feel free to click on the image, save to your pc, and add to your sidebar as a gadget- the Add Image one.
