That’s a first!

I posted this on Facebook, too: In more than forty years of sewing, I’ve poked myself with every size of pin and needle except a sewing machine needle– until today!  Today, I ran over my finger!!  I didn’t hit the nail itself, I don’t think, but the needle did go all the way through the finger at the top corner of the nail bed.

I was shoving/pushing some fabric through– I was altering some clothe$ for a client– and I just ran through my finger without stopping!  Yikes!!

I took an hour off after Brian helped getting the Bandaid on– I was a little shaky since there’s a bit of pain involved with that, ya know?  When I went back downstairs, I noticed with interest that the needle broke on my machine– who’da thunk?
