aparently some of the beading and lace on Queen Eliabeth II's wedding dress had the hair of the seamstresses sewin into it so they could be present with her when she got married.

Thats almost morbid but I get where they are coming from. Spend all that time and energy doing a dress for a very high up and you dont even get to really see her in it.

Every time I set up shop on the floor or the bed to macrame, I wind up getting a metric ton of hair in it. Sometimes it's the hair attached to my head, and sometimes it's the hair already laying there.

What's worse is, not only do I have very long hair, but my partner has long hair as well as a full beard, so with the two of us combined, you can imagine the stray hair...

Of course I will pull it out if I catch it within one or two knots, but if I don't notice it until the whole thing is done, there's just no way. I usually just take some scissors to it afterwards and hope no one notices...

I just started doing needlepoint and I have since learned to pull my hair back lol I think the owl hoop I just sent off for a swap had some of my hair still tangled under the thread.

I'm looking for wrist watches or old clocks. Broken or working, doesn't matter! I will swap anything you would like.

LOL! When it's loose, my back gets hot Tongue I usually wear it twisted in a bun and pinned with one of those two-prong doohickies, or just braided.

I've been knitting like a fiend for Christmas, and I've had those inevitable moments where I sigh and try to gently pull a strand of hair out of the stitches.

Also, I have, on more than one occasion, dipped my hair into things I was cooking...

Haha! I know what you mean. My hair is below waist length. I lit my hair on fire once (only once!!) lighting our Sabbath candles. Imagine red hair on fire....the kids loved it.....it sparks. lol

BWAHAHAHA!!!! Oh man, that's horribly hilarious, and I can totally relate Tongue I lost a big hank of hair, an eyebrow, some eyelashes and NOSE HAIR to a BBQ fireball because the sparker wouldn't work. It's a bad idea to gasp when there is fire in your face.

So who all's going to purposefully sew their hair for this months "Thread It" challenge? Tongue

I know that feeling.
My hair is just to my shoulders now, but years ago I had hair down to my hips. Random strands would find their way out of the bun and I would sew it to my projects. I used to attempt crochet and I'd always crochet a good sized lock into my project and have to carefully pull it loose.
