Have you ever been sewing, gotten yourself a bottle of something to drink, gone back to sewing and as you remove a pin, drop it into your drink bottle instead of your pin bottle? DH saw me looking for it & started laughing at me. I'm sure glad I always close the safety pins before putting them in their bottle!! LOL! The pin is now washed and drying on top of the coffee pot with the heat. Didn't want it to rust!
