Houston, We have a problem....

So I'm laying in bed this morning and my foot got stabbed. This happened a few weeks ago too and I couldn't figure it out.

I'm sure I said it before...I'm a rogue quilter. I'm anti-pin. Sooooo how did I get a pin in between the backing and the batting?

I had no choice, I had to snip it out. Then I put a dot of fray check on it. We'll just hope for the best!

That happened to me once--I fished the tip of the pin through, grabbed it with pliers, pulled as much of it up as I could thru the backing and used wire nippers to clip it off--left the glass head in. There was a tiny little metal stub still on the glass head, but I figured it wasn't long enough to do diddly. I love Fray Check--fixed a torn skirt with it once years ago and it is still holding! And it gets washed a lot!

When that happens to me, I pull the pin part out and leave the head in. What does it hurt?

I probably would have done the same thing. I have pins around even though I don't use them much. It could happen to me too. At least it was just you and not someone you gave it to!

I did the same thing with one of my daughters quilts her husband was the one who got stabbed so I didn't feel all that bad .Ok that wasn't nice but neither is he LOL He's one of these people who thinks we quilt because we can't afford to buy a blanket ,pay backs are a b---- . LOL

I only use pins when I am piecing. I am going to have to be extra careful to keep this from happening!
