What are the chances...

...that your needle will hit the pin on the fabric while you sew? Almost zero? Well, remember almost zero is not zero. So this is what happened to one of the pins that were holding the two layers of fabric and which I didn't remove when it passed under the needle:

Mental note: remove all the pins when they are close to the machine foot. Don't think they will never be hit by the needle. As long as this may seam improbable, it may happen (and it may fly directly to your eye...)

Oops, I'll do it again...

That's it. I'll sew the Liz blouse again. This time with a non-expensive floral quilt cotton. Even if I didn't like my first try, I'll do it again to practice a little bit (specially the collar) and maybe use other techniques to finish the seams.
Here we go!
