    I've just joined the "needle through the finger" club. Pulling up the bobbin thread and somehow, I don't know how, I was looking at the needle stuck through my finger. Surprisingly it didn't hurt, but it sure did bleed. The good news is that there was no blood on the quilt. Glad I had my tetanus shot last year.

    that sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately he thinks a night out is going for a ride in our antique truck. I'd rather stay home and sew

    Sorry to hear you got hurt. The good news is that it's unlikely you will sew through your finger again. Since I sewed through mine I've been extra careful. LOL Hope your finger is better soon!

    Now there's a club I'm happy to be excluded from. I did get very close to being admitted once, but just bruised my finger.

    But straight pins - they jump off the fabric and pierce my hands all the time!

    I better get a tetanus shot. It's been a long time since I had one.

    I am cringing, just thinking about it. I am sure that my stomach just curled up in a small ball. Do take care it doesn't get infected and give that machine a good talking to.
