    Heck, I patched up my britches, sewed up a hammock and made a set of curtains all in one afternoon.

    Then I baked a quiche.

    Haven't heard the quiche reference since I was a kid (I refused to eat it when I was younger because of that book--I just couldn't take the chance).
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    My wife and I are taking a thread injector class at the local community college and I sewed two straight stiches. My wife was mad because my stiches were straighter than hers

    Of course I am the only one in the class using camo fabric

    Worst class I ever took was a humor theory class... never been so bored in all my life.

Poor Flannery O'Connor. I knew her Horatio.

    Congrats on your addition without attrition! It's guaranteed that every time a break a needle there won't be a replacement anywhere in our house. I'm making my oldest daughter a gathered end hammock and, by gadfrey, I am determined not to even begin the project until I receive visual confirmation that we have 6 or 7 replacement needles (which, of course, means I won't break any--well worth the trouble).

    Keep up the good work (sewing and schooling)
    I just made my son's hammock last night. Total cost: $13.06. I have the components to make the suspension, I just have to review all the "whoopie making" threads.
    great to know so many fellas and ladies are sewing up cool stuff!
