Go, Go, Gadget Girl!

Me and this little guy have been good friends these past couple of days.


Havel's Ultra Pro Seam Ripper.
A friend got it for me for Christmas and those little blue handled seam rippers are now a distant memory.  Seriously, this thing cuts like butta.  I love it!

P.S.  I have a little girl who got 5 [count that: F-I-V-E] vaccination shots today.  And didn't even cry [She got the crying done in the car about 15 minutes before hand.]  Still, I was a proud mamma :)

That was the one thing I hated about being a pediatric nurse. Giving multiple immunizations.. hated it...

I used to have the kids blow bubbles while they were getting their shots. They didn't tense up and they got to keep the bubbles...

LOL! And I thought I would be reading a blog about yet another GO! Thank you for posting some new. Would love to see some action shots or video.

I have one of those too, and I love love love it!

I can't imagine getting 5 vaccinations in one day! It's just a fancy word for a shot. It's a challenge for me to get one.

I have the same ripper, that razor-like blade is a dream! I almost look for excuses to un-sew.

They make ripping seams a dream. I've used one at the shop. It really does cut like butta. : )

I love those seam rippers, but hate it when I miscalculate and slice my finger!

the "make yourself feel better about it" term is REVERSE SEWING. funny hey!? Interesting tool!

FIVE??? And no tears??? That's amazing -- I hope she got a big hug -- and a prize! ;-)

I think I need one of those. I hate to admit how much I use a seam ripper!

Barb said...

Thanks for sharing your gadget....I have seen those before, now I know.

That is great about your daughter....my mother said I always caused her grief when it came to shots.

Needled Mom said...

That looks like a wicked weapon!!!

OUCH on the five vaccines. Too bad they can't be given in one shot.

Wendy said...

I have the same ripper ... love luv love it! Sorry for the momma grief ... it usually hurts worse than the shots do :) Yay for the big-girl!

Shannon said...

Oh sweet baby. Poor thing. Give her a big squeeze from blog land.

I've never seen that ripper before. Thanks so much for sharing!

Sweet little Maya.....breaks your heart. Couldn't help but giggle about getting the crying out before hand. The thought of it is the WORST!! Give her a hug from me!
