    Ouch!!!

    I was threading the needle on my machine and putting the thread behind the foot when all of a sudden I see the needle in my finger. Lily was underneath the cabinet and had stepped on the pedal. I thought I was going to either wet myself or pass out. It didn't go all the way through but it did go through the nail. I'll have one sore finger tomorrow I'm sure.

    Backing the needle up and out of your nail would have been tough. Just imagine if the needle had already been threaded and you had to pull the thread out, too! Passing out now.

    Sorry to hear of your injury. At least you have a dog to blame. I've done it to myself--LOL! Fondle fabric with your other hand until it heals.

    ACK!! Hope it's not too bad tomorrow!! When I was 8+ months pregnant with my son (a hundred years ago..lol..well, 26+ yrs.) I was visiting my Mom, it was summer and I was walking around barefoot. I took a step, and felt a sharp pain in the ball of my foot...I had stepped on a threaded sewing needle, eye end went in 1st, thread and all...yep, eye end, we never did figure out how that happened! My parents had the thick textured carpet, hard to see if something was down in the carpet pile. What was really bad (but kinda funny now) is that I semi limped with my large pregnant belly to a chair to sit down, to see what I had stepped on. Meantime here came my mom to look, when she saw what it was, she had to go and sit down to keep from fainting! I had to pull it out myself!... I can really sympathize with you...
    Take care,
