"All lies and jest,
still a man hears what he wants to hear
and disregards the rest."
~ Simon & Garfunkel, The Boxer
What are you scared of?
The pen could leak on your white dress.
You could crochet and re-crochet the same inch of yarn 5 times.
You could make an ipod case that doesn't fit.
The paint that drips on the floor could stain.
The Sharpie could bleed through the paper onto your desk.
The needle could break.*
But I'm guessing that's not what you fear.
* ANALYSIS: In 14 months of sewing paper + fabric, I've only broken 2 needles. The first broke on a pin. This breakage/bendage was the result of attempting to bind a journal that had about 8-10 layers of heavy paper and fabric. I've done it before without breaking a needle so I'd try it again. Live on the wild side!
