Don't you love peripheral vision?
I finally got all the sashing sewn on the scrappy version of my GC/CW quilt tops. I figured it out and with this setting it's like sewing on the sashing three times instead of one.
I think the blue really brings it all together. If I had it to do over I would probably sew that arrow in some other fabric but it's done and I'm not going to unpick anything.
As I was sewing the rows together I noticed that my scissors (which I keep in front of my machine at all times) were slowing slipping of the table. Without a thought I unpinned the butted seam I was sewing over, put the pin in my magnetic holder, and caught the scissors without taking my eyes off the needle or letting up on the foot pedal.
I didn't really think about it till it was over but I must depend on my peripheral vision a lot. Our body is a magical thing don't you think?
