January 2012- The Fabric Gremlin
The fabric gremlin is a horrible companion, at least to the sewing community. He is the one that hides your sewing needles when you sit them beside you to reach for more thread. His favorite thing is to make sure you do not cut enough thread when you are hand sewing, so you run out an inch short. Only 10" high, but capable of doing a lot of mischief. He wears discarded knitting projects in purple and green with a snazzy cap of mouse leather. A needle rests in his hat from a poor seamstress and is ready to pick the threads of fine silk. His favorite time to work is the night before a big project is due because he knows you held off working until the last minute.
