May I Just say....Ouch!

Okay, so I pride myself on a few certain things that, for now superstitious reasons, I will not list for fear that they will now come true. You see, one of them is that I had never sewn my finger with the sewing machine...so, do you see where this is going? Keep in mind, this is after I cleaned it up.

I didn't exactly sew it. I mean, my foot wasn't on the pedal or anything (Thank God!). But I was trying to finagle the fabric under the needle and I went to let the needle down to hold the fabric in place but I didn't realize how close my finger was. You wouldn't think it would have gone through the top of my nail like that, but it did. And it hurt. Good gosh, it hurt. I was glad the kids were upstairs. I think it would have freaked my daughter out. She doesn't like it if I get hurt. And I kind of had to talk myself out of throwing up. I don't know if you can tell but it left a hole and there's a crack in my nail all around it. Fun. After I got all doctored up, I went back to my machine and found that I had broken my needle in half. No surprise there. I'm pretty sure I snatched my hand back which is probably what cracked my nail and broke the needle. So, needless to say, I didn't finish what I was working on.

On a brighter note...there's a great giveaway over at Lila Tueller's for some of her lovely Fiona's fabric line. Just leave a comment on what "No one ever told me...".

Ouch! I haven't done that, and I hope I don't ever do that. I have come close a few times. That's gonna be really tender for a while. Sorry :(

Oh, oh, oh!!! I am SO sorry! I've done that (plus a recent "graze") and that is the most horrifying moment!!! I hope your finger is okay soon! :(

Oh it's terrible that you got hurt but I'm so glad it wasn't worse. I hope it feels better soon.

Oh OUCH! That had to hurt! Thank goodness you didn't have your foot on the pedal. Hope it heals fast.

That does hurt....I just did that to myself about a week ago. It didn't go through my nail, but it did go through the finger right next to it and I did break my needle too.

Holy crap! So sorry this happened! If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I stepped on a machine needle and the entire eye hole part went into ball of my foot! I don't know which was worse - it going in or having to pull it out! May we both heal (no pun intended on my part) quickly!

I know how that feels! It makes me shudder just thinking about it! My husband made me go to urgent care and get a tetanus shot since it had been many years since I'd had one and since it was a puncture wound. Maybe something you need to do too?

I'm so sorry this happened to you!
