tip #6 count your pins

A corollary to last week's tip--count your pins.
If I am binding a quilt and taking it along with me, I use three pins. That is enough to securely pin a corner and enough to keep track of.
(I also use this counting in my work--whenever I enter a patient's room I know exactly how many needles/sharps are coming in with me so that they are all accounted for when I leave the bedside.)

I do the same thing - three pins while binding. I'm not so careful with pins while piecing though. At least I don't have carpet anymore for a stray pin to be discovered by a bare foot!
