My sweet husband came to me this morning and said, “Would you like to see evidence of life with you?” I wasn’t sure how to answer. Frankly, I was a little fearful of what that evidence would be. Would it be a Dove Dark Chocolate wrapper found on the coffee table? Would it be a wayward tea cup with a just a splash of cold tea in the bottom? Would it be one of my several pairs of shoes kicked off by the front door? Would it be a pile, ok, a tower, of magazines that he tripped over?
But brave girl that I am, I said, “Sure, let me see the evidence.” And here you have it:
A target sticker stuck to the bottom of a clean sock. “Oh that’s not so bad!” I laughed. Imagine how much worse it could have been. It could have been a needle, a straight pin or a rotary cutter blade. It could have been miles of thread tangled around a shoe (high heels are not for the sewing room!).
The beauty is he knew what it was and how important they are to landing perfect embroidery because he sees me use them all of the time. He even knows that I stick them on the side of my machine for safe keeping because they are reusable.
I use them for left chest placement.
They’re very handy for continuous embroidery.
A single design on a napkin is always guided by a target sticker.
Towel placement is simplified with a target sticker.
In fact, there isn’t an embroidery task that I do that doesn’t include a target sticker. And now they come in yellow – so easy to spot! Won’t they look terrific on black socks?
