    "Honey, could you please go to the basement and get the pliers so I can...

    pull this needle out of my finger?"

    Yes, I joined the club.

    Lesson: do not try to smooth out the water soluble topping while the machine is stitching. Happily, it was a 75/11 and not some monster needle.

    Ouch, I feel your pain. I stitched the end of my thumb yesterday. I had my fingers too close while trying to make sure the binding was where I wanted! Hope your finger is okay.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    OOHHH!! That hurts!! We have a whooping cough epidemic here and hubby needed to get a shot. When he asked why my shots were up to date I told him it was because of all the sharp things in my sewing room that were always inserting themselves into my skin (I also keep pliers and a first aide kit since I could bleed to death before he hears me call him).

    Hope you heal fast.

    Rotary cutters are something else we use carefully.

    Thanks everybody. I'm not even sure it hurt, it happened so fast. I had to do the extraction myself.

    Fortunately, no blood on the white fabric!

    Raggie, ouch!! I hope your thumb heals quickly.

    Hope you don't do it again...Ouch! I hate to admit this, but...I have done this too many times...I keep pliers in my cup with the other scissors. I also keep several band-aids with the first covering already off with a rubberband to the cup..
