As defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a glutton is "one that has a great capacity for accepting or enduring something" such as a glutton for punishment.

Hi, I'm Judy, and I'm a glutton for punishment. Why? Here's my story:

While I was working on Bunny & Clyde, I learned the extremely hard lesson that polyester thread is evil, worthless, and a waste of time and money. After spending over an hour on these bunnies, I had to go back and redo everything with cotton thread, because the polyester thread kept shredding and skipping stitches. I made my husband swear that he would never let me use polyester thread again.

What a good husband he is! The other night he randomly looked at me and said "Judy, don't use polyester thread ever again!" He then continued into a list of everything I told him to remind me never to do. Isn't he sweet? At least he remembers, right :)

Tonight, as I pulled out my machine and sat down to sew, I saw all of the polyester thread in my collection and thought, what can it hurt? I cannot throw things that might be somewhat useful away, and my mother-in-law passed her great assortment of thread onto me. I was just mending something that didn't have to look pretty, so it wouldn't matter much. After re-doing, re-threading, re-everything, I finally decided to switch to cotton thread. Guess what? My machine started singing praises to my name and humming the most beautiful melody a sewing machine can hum.

What did I tell you? I am a glutton!
