Default Have you done this?

I was hand sewing the binding on my quilt the other day. I was reclined in the recliner, cat on lap, quilt on top of cat, watching TV in dim light and sewing on the binding. In order to see what I was sewing, I had it close to my face. As I took a stitch and pulled the needle out, I scratched the tip of my nose with the needle! What a dummy! Have I created a new quilting injury?

No, not yet. Maybe that's why I don't have a kitty.

You need a shorter needle.

You need a lamp so you can see properly. You must be straining your eyes.

No but I have come close. You sound exactly like me when I finish a binding. Cat on top.

THANKS for sharing this! Now I don't feel quite so bad! I do stuff like this all the time. My DH just smiles and shakes his head. Sometimes he just sighs.

Oh be careful! Maybe change your binding set up. I set at a counter height table on a bar stool when doing binding. I can keep the quilt spread out and move it freely.
