This is going to be a short post. I'm currently working on two very long-term projects, so there will be more in-progress posts (less finished projects posts), upcoming and at a slower rate than what I've been able to do these past few months. That's okay though, as both of these projects will be challenging and exciting in their own way.
But I'm actually here to talk about something really, really weird. I went to the dentist this past week.
|No cavities, awww yeah!|
Well, here's the thing folks, I've noticed recently that I clench my teeth. While sewing. A lot. I do it usually when I have to cut out fabric or snip seam allowances. Sometimes I do it when I am just thinking about what I am doing while sewing, or placing pattern pieces, or anything really! I am a sewing teeth clencher.
Well, according to my dental hygienist, clenching your teeth, besides other things, can lead to gum recession. I've had pretty sensitive teeth for about three or so years. I started sewing about three or so years ago. So yes, what I am saying is that sewing can lead to tooth sensitivity. Weird. I know. But worth mentioning. Next time you are sewing, it would be worth paying attention to whether or not you are clenching your teeth, because, you know, tooth sensitivity sucks.
That's all I really wanted to say. But, I do have to ask: do you have any bad sewing-related habits? I can't be the only one!
