    Red face Blood Sweat and Tears or a new Fad

    Yesterday I was quilting with my new Janome Memory Craft. I really have to get use to that start/stop button.
    I quilted my finger to the quilt. I never done this. And I have been quilting over 10 years. Right after I quilted my finger I had a hot flash and of course I wanted to cry. And yes I did bleed.; but not on my quilt.
    Maybe I'm starting a new fad pierced fingers.
    Oh ya I'm up to date with all my shorts.
    Quilting is therapy. And I can use all the therapy I can get.

    Ouch, that sounds painful. Glad you didn't bleed on the fabric. But I did get a kick out of you being updated on all your shorts. Typos can be so much fun.

    That is one fashion I hope to avoid! I have done it before and do not want a repeat performance. Good luck with your boo boo healing up so you can get back to mastering your new machine.

    Been there, done that - 1951 - White treadle machine. Once was enough. You remember things like this and avoid them in the future.

    Ouch! So glad you are okay! My grandson was my pedal man as I was trying to get squares sewn together for a Twister Quilt last Friday. He kept telling me to be careful Grammie don't sew your finger too! I didn't and I finally got the squares done. Took a bit longer with his help. But it was so much more fun to have him with me!

    I did that once and got sick from the initial shock of it. The pain isn't that bad but the shock of what I did was the worst part. I never put my fingers close to the needle anymore. I don't want to do that again.
    Got fabric?
