The 8 Most Helpful Hand Sewing Stitches

I'm teaching a sewing class! Did you already know that? If you follow me on twitter, you probably did. ​It's an in-person class at Needlework, which is a sewing and craft space in Hamilton. I haven't taught since I taught Advanced Theatrical Millinery for George Brown College, but I'm excited to give it a whirl, again! Mostly I'm excited about the topic, which is Hand Sewing and Bow Ties. There are bow ties all over my studio in the cutest patterns and it makes me want to dress up Jay in suspender + bow tie outfits and take pictures. That's two things Jay hates: "outfits" and photos. Muahahah. 

Dogs Who Rip Out Their Stitches

This week, Finnegan got neutered. He spent one day lulling us into a false sense of security, and then went for his stitches like a kid after a bubblegum flavoured ice cream cone. 

We tried EVERYTHING. (Except one guy online who suggested building a brace out of PVC pipes... but that did have some good points). We tried the cone of shame. We tried putting pants on him. We tried just stopping him when he went to lick. We tried keeping him quiet (HAHAHAH. Fail.)
