There's no question that if you have a dedicated sewing space, as I am lucky enough to, you can close the door on all that potential danger. But one day you'll forget. Or they'll learn to turn a door knob! ☺
Before leaving my studio, I tidy my desk. Each. And. Every. Time. Even if I think I'm coming right back. Think of all the sharp edges (rotary cutters, seam rippers, pins, scissors) and wee things (safety pins, Wonder Clips). Danger! Danger! Danger! I push my machine to the middle of the desk and place my scissors back against the wall or in a drawer where BT can't grab them.
Related to sharps, the other item I'm planning to add to my tools is a magnetic wand to be swept across the carpet each and every time I drop a pin or break a needle. Better for me to take a couple minutes from my sewing then for GT to have it in her tiny pincer grip.
I'm linking up today with Tips & Tutorials Tuesday @ Late Night Quilter!

P.S. Apologies for the slightly wonky formatting on this post. The html seems to have gone a little cattywampus behind the scenes and I didn't have the time/energy to re-write the post!
