    The queasiness is the worst! An operator at a garment factory where I worked did just what you did but asked me to raise the needle because she just couldn't. I did it for her and then we were BOTH queasy. My own blood doesn't bother me but another person's sure does.

    Please take care of yourself.

    And if it's been more than two years, with an puncture wound like yours, its a good idea to just get another booster! Keep your eye on your wound over the next few days!! (and so sorry, too!!)

    Thanks everyone. The finger is still sore today and I'm finding out how hard it is to type with a missing digit. :/ The best part? Tomorrow is my birthday. I'm leaving my twenties behind and what a wonderful way to start my thirties. On the phone with the doctor, now, about getting in for a tetanus booster.

    I use a long quilting pin to pull the threads out from under the foot. smile. never put a needle through a finger, but I have done the cutter bit and took off a good slice of my left index finger. sigh... Found blood spots on a quilt top i made by DGD. Plain cold water took it out. Used a q- tip to scrub it.

    Pennif is correct. Puncture wounds need to be looked at. SIL told me they make a gas or something.

    I have done this more than once. The first time I was working on my Mother's old treadle machine and stuck the needle through my thumb right in the middle of the nail. Did it again more recently and just missed the nail of my thumb. Now, I use a pin or something to grab that thread because don't want a repeat!

    Ouch! I hope your finger feels better soon. Have you had a tetanus shot in the last 5 years?
