Back at Azkatraz, [ profile] bekkio made a beautiful House Unity quilt and I bought it at our auction.

Last week it tried to kill me.

J/K. I put it on my bed last weekwhen I was sick and had chills, and the next morning (after I bailed on work), I was bundled up under it and felt a stab. Then another little jab. I lifted up the corner to find that a pin had been left stuck under the top layer. But here's the thing: The head of the pin was caught inside the quilt itself! So there I was, sick, groggy, getting out a seam ripper so that I could open up the binding at the corner and then carefully easing the pin by its head down to the corner and popping it out of the new hole I'd just made.

I still need to sew it back up. But at least my quilt isn't trying to kill me anymore.

(And, um, I'm kinda even more glad that I bought it and not some unrelated fandomer who might then have had a pin sticking them in the head when they were sick and trying to sleep....)

LOL... Still giggling from when you told me this over the phone earlier.

And if the pin hadn't been sewn in, it would have been seen and removed before it could bite you.

Once, I left a pin in a WEDDING DRESS. I was mortified, but no one was hurt, she's my oldest friend, and the coolest bride ever. AND STILL MARRIED

Did Bekki give you a heads up (that she had made it and that you should buy it) before you bought it???

Just sayin'!
