It's official the needle and the damage done

To balance out my OCD need to keep my hands busy, and since I no long smoke to keep them busy...
I've taken up sewing.
But I really need a sewing device...
I've got straight pins strewn all over the carpet and I keep stepping on them...I have to stop stitching and try on whatever it is I'm making every 15 mins to make sure I'm not screwing it up and my eyes hurt from trying to thread the needles.

There's a lot to be said for having a sewing machine near by.

My grandma totally messed up her vacuum cleaner because she used to just vacuum up all of the straight pins she'd drop.

Uh-oh...I better find a magnet and get them before I vaccum tommorrow.

I'm thinking I should get some knitting needles and do that instead. There's a lot of pressure in sewing an actual garment that I'm going to wear.
