Broken Needle

Yesterday while I was quilting, I broke a needle! Yeah, I know that sounds not unusual until you think about the fact that I was hand quilting. I've bent needles before, but this is the first one I've ever broken. I had noticed it was bent, but thought I could go a bit further before swapping needles. And then it snapped. Luckily, I was able to get the piece out of the quilt with no difficulty.

I'd tell you more exciting things, but the laundry awaits (as does the cutting table and the checkerboard quilt).
