Blood and Spit

Today my Mom and I were supposed to be boy-free and to celebrate such a status we were going to drive down to Oklahoma City for the day to go check out the North Pole City store, which is cram packed with Christmas stuff! There is nothing on this earth, other than her grandson and mowing the yard, that makes my Mom happier than Christmas stuff! Lets put it this way, her house has Christmas stuff up all year long. It's festive! Anywho, I got onto the North Pole City's website to get directions only to find out that they are closed due to remodeling and inventory. Uh, bummer! New Plan!!!!

Instead we drove around to all kinds of various stores, mainly fabric related ones. First we went to Main Street Broken Arrow, to Sew Flakes. Very cute store, very sweet ladies, odd guy in the back. Granted he was very knowledgeable about Bernina sewing machines, but somehow we got onto the topic of rotary cutter safety and what to do if you slice your finger off and you bleed onto your fabric. What gets the blood out of your fabric? Well, your own spit, duh! Who knew? Not me! This leads to me to ponder this bit of fabric knowledge...... How long do you leave the spit on your fabric? Does it really have to be your own spit? Can someone else spit on your fabric while you're going to the emergency room? Do you spit then rub, spit then rub until the blood comes out? So many questions about blood and spit! Do think this theory applies to your body too? Can you spit on yourself and you stop bleeding? Maybe I'm thinking about this too much, but now I really wanna know! What do you do with the spit?!

I don't know, but you can use it to spit splice natural fiber yarn, too! Works like a charm and leaves fewer ends to weave in!

Hi, thanks for coming over to visit my blog. Now, about blood and spit, I'm glad you asked cos I've never found it works, so it'll be interesting to see if anyone can answer.

You're set to "no reply" so I can't answer the lovely comment you left on my blog privately, so I have to write here.
What I wanted to say was "Woww, thank you, what a lovely compliment.

If you have any trouble with my instructions, please email me and I'll sort it! I hope you enjoy it, and I'll look forward to seeing your version of it."

By the way, I've replied to all your previous comments too, but they won't have got through, so you must ha ve thought I was very rude, I'm sorry.

Being an old girl from Down Under I can tell you that Spit and Polish....armaments, shoes, wounds, dirt marks, sticky gum, marks on good tables, insect bites and especially blood on fabric actually a last resort when nothing more appropriate is available or when people are looking. lol. With the fabric spit and rub until all the blood is gone. A soak in milk works good too.
