Default Geez, I just joined the needle thru the finger club!

Not what I had in mind to do today. I'm forcing myself to do a little free motion stuff, but that didn't include the needle thru the finger! Broke the needle, went thru by the nail and out the other side. It didn't hit the bone. Think I'll just back off for today. How do I get blood out of the quilt? It's dark, has a light weight denim on the back and dark plaid on the front. My saving grace.

Ooooh! Ouch!! Sounds painful! To get the blood out you take a good length of cotton thread,chew it till it is really soaked in your spit, then rub it gently over the blood stain! I know it sounds gross(ugh!) but it works!! Your own spit neutralises your blood!

I'm so sorry to hear you injured yourself! Ooohhhh sounds so painful. My cat , out of fear, bit me through the nail bed of my thumb. Boy was that painful. I can just imagine how a needle felt.

Ouch, been there, done that! Not only did I puncture through the side of my finger but I panicked and yanked back my hand. Then it was no longer just a puncture but a nice gaping wound to the side.

Ditto. My grandmother told me that many times and it works. It's your enzymes, your blood.

A new member! Whenever I see one I know I'm not as clumbsy as I think I am! Mine went just outside my nail all the way through. No bone. Ouch. Still hurts just thinking about it!

Ouch! All I can hope is that this never happens to me! Feel better soon! Keep it clean like others say.

The only thing "better" for your hurt finger is a LONGARM needle through it....that's what I get for thinking mine would forgive all sins and not mind that I really wasn't paying close attention.......bet it won't happen again...LOL
