    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?

    How do you get "up to date on your shorts?" LOL. I apologize, that just tickled my funny bone. Have a better day going forward.

    It takes a little time to get used to a start/stop button, especially if you use both the pedal and the button.

    Ooooh, so sorry about your owie.

    But, remember, the important thing is that you didn't get blood on your quilt!

    Yep - been there, done that. Not really my idea of fun. Sorry it happened to others. Maybe we should start a sisterhood of the sewn fingers or something.

    I get my finger caught up between the needle nob and the machine somehow and wind up scraping a knuckle, can't figure out how I do that and it hurts so I can imagine how painful it must have been to put sew through a finger-yuck.

    Sorry about your finger. That really "smarts." I think a hot flash is now called a "power surge." that is probably what caused it......

    I'm so sorry to hear you did that. When I first got my 7700 I was using the start /stop button and I felt out of control but thought I just had to get use to it. I then watched a few of Leah Day's videos and she didn't recommend using that button so I have given up and use the foot petal. It just feels like it's the right thing to do. I had forgotten it's even there.

    Must be something with Janome Memory Craft and their love for the taste of fingers. Last year, I sewed my pointed finger, right through the center of the nail, needle broke when it chipped the bone, and I now have 2 pieces of shrapnel in the finger. Be very careful, I no longer us the stop and start button.
