I had one of those moments today. This is what the area to the right of my machine normally looks like while I'm sewing. Glass milk bottle for putting thread tails in, empty water bottle for dropping pins in, and either a diet coke or a bottle of water (or both).
So, as I was merrily quilting along today, removing pins as I went, guess where one of the pins got dropped? Yup, right into the coke which I was still drinking. The result? One slightly caffeinated pin, to be retrieved once I'd finished the coke. Sigh. Yeah, it was that kind of a day.
