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?
