    Tetanus shot is current. I got one two years ago when I sliced the tip of my finger with my rotary cutter. My poor index finger is a quilting victim.

    Ouch!! Hope everything heals okay. Plus I hope you didn't get any blood on the quilt you were working on.

    oh my goodness. In a similar freak accident my significant other managed to ram a metal splinter from a friend's stool through his nail and it got stuck in the bone. A surgeon had to remove part of the nail to get the brittle piece of metal out that was stuck in his bone!

    Luckily needles are stronger and your's came out all in one piece the first try!

    Oh, wow, so sorry! I have done everything from cutting the side of my finger off, to dropping a portable on my big toe, but - thank heavens - I have never gotten a needle in my finger. Hope you are back to quilting quickly.

    Welcome to the club! We have jackets and everything, lol. Make sure your tetanus shot is up-to-date and get a hug and a piece of chocolate from hubby.

    I did that too a long long time ago. I watch where my fingers are ever since
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
