Sewed Through Finger

  I sewed through my finger with my machine last night.
while quilting "Reflecting Glory"
  Thankfully, the needle went completely in and out,
did not hit the bone,  did not break off in my finger 
and the bleeding stopped quickly with applied pressure. 
.  That along with my cold, I'm taking it easy today.

Great Technique ~ Dale Fleming;s 6 Minute Circle

 After piecing various blue batik
6 inch strips for the background,
I'm ready to add the circle.  I  successfully used
technique for my son and his bride's 
I do like to hand applique but since there 
are so many seams on the background
 and the white circle to be appliqued,
I will complete this by machine.
Anyone else tried this fabulous technique?
