MPB SHOCKER: the nude treadle centerfold + POLL!


Friends, it's been all about the treadle so far this week.  My technique is improving and I love learning to sew on it.

I want to make another treadle video and perhaps in the near future I will.  But today I thought I'd go for something a little different.

So in the glorious American tradition of shameless self-exploitation I bring you...

OK, I'm no Burt Reynolds -- but at least I'm not selling "eau de treadle!"  (Yet.)


Jeepers, have I gone too far?

  4. Snort! I think this needs to be your new blog header pic. Oh, and my mom had that issue of Cosmo, back when I was about 11 or 12. I loved it! LOL!

    Word verification: haryb ... hmmm

  5. Ha! I sew in my underwear sometimes --it makes it easy to try on what I'm making, so I guess there are probably people who sew naked (or avoid sewing as Claire said).

  6. Snort! guffaw! I love it! Apparently there are no splinters in your sewing table, that's good to know.

  7. Ha! Love! I hope that magnet option wasn't just an empty threat...this is what Zazzle was born to do.

  12. Sitting at my desk at work. Exhausted. Stressed.
    Worrying if the dress I made to wear to my DD's wedding tomorrow night is going to look Becky Home-ecky, pissed off that I have to wear heels to the wedding and wondering if anyone will notice if I ditch the heels and wear something more comfortable at the reception.
    Opened Peter's blog and YOWZA!
    Thanks Peter. I needed this one.

  14. So this is what you actually meant when you said play with your "treadle" on your video.....

    ReplyDelete
  15. Funny!!! You should start a Flikr group where we can all post such photos after we complete Peter's Personal Self-Confidence Correspondence Course. Thank you like Mermie I needed this one...

  16. Ha, Ha, Debbie! I'm a little older than you and saw that issue in the drug store, where all red blooded Americans peruse their literature. :-) My mother wouldn't have dreamed of having it around...that I know of...Hmmmm...

    And, Peter, this is classic sewing avoidance. You knew that before you posted ;-)

  18. I'd say that treadle has bewitched you . . . how did we get from hair canvas to this? At any rate, I'm grinning from ear to ear. You know how to brighten the day. Cheers!

  22. Who knew sewing blogs could be R rated? And my kids think this stuff is dull. Au contraire :)
    What will you do next to avoid sewing that jacket?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Heather, I DO own 12 sewing machines... ;)

    LHC: Ironing, ironing, ironing. :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know Fit For Real People says you should sew in your underwear ... but Peter haven't you taken it a step too far?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is naked sewing really such a good idea? It could lead to a very embarrassing injury and a lot of explaining at the hospital!

    ReplyDelete
  31. *applauds* LOL! I see someone needs to sew something to avoid being nekkid.... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. In the spirit of the Naked Chef ...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh wow, too funny! I picked a great day to get caught up on blog reading :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my, what a way to start the morning... you are a card!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh my! The boyfriend fussed at me for looking at this. I said it's a sewing blog!!! LOL

  45. (Stares wide eyed at screen while gulping more coffee...must have more coffee...)

    Is that a window with no blinds or curtains behind you? Your neighbors must LOVE you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Shades, shades! What do you think I am, an exhibitionist? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love it. You made me snort in a very unladylike manner.
    I just knew that something like this was going to show up one day after those posts entitled Sexy Sexy Sexy and Can you see my butt crack? appeared...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Peter, I think that is the perfect outfit for your high school reunion.

    I heart you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is awesome. I would hang this photo of you in my sewing room. Oh, and Marc Jacobs earned that ad campaign! I remember when he was fat and homeboy has put in serious WORK! I heart him. (and you!)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wasn't it MICHAEL'S birthday suit that was Priority One this week?????

    ReplyDelete
  51. Well..I *did* say I like my men "au naturale" on your Make-up post...but somehow this wasn't what I had in mind ;)

    ReplyDelete
  52. You have always offered inspiration. Today you have given me EXTRA inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh Good Heavens. (wipes tears of laughter from eyes). You must be careful, you've given my husband a complex; he feels inadequate because he can't match your equipment. I haven't sewed for years, although it's on my quality of life list of changes to make. In the meantime I am a voyeur (now in more senses than one) on sewing blogs -- well, not quite like yours, since yours is inimitable. Love your approach to sewing and the world.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yo...LOL..did yor mama see this? LOL (gulp) my bf gasped and warned me about malepatternBOLDNESS...(guffaw) :P
