I was literally in the last few inches of meandering the border of a baby quilt before FINALLY being able to put it aside for squaring up the quilt to bind it...and before starting the quilting on her twin brother's quilt...and I was so excited and into the zone and ready to be done....
I was just ZOOMIN' along with eyes on the much-longed-for last 2" of empty space left when SLAM....sewed right through the head of a safety pin! (see pictures)
I am going to save the needle and safety pin, tape it to a sheet of paper that says SLOW DOWN and attach it to the wall to remind me to focus and, well, slow down!!
Needless to say, I decided not to finish the last 2" and figure I'm gonna be squaring it up and binding it anyway so... :lol:
