    Thumbs up Guess what I did?

    Was watching my quilt sew out with Pro Stitcher and didn't move my hand fast enough and sewed through my finger. I had my hand on the quilt because sometimes the t-shirts get puckered. Now I have a hole to fix before I get it to the customer. Luckily I didn't bleed on it.

    I feel for you! Oouch! I'm sure you know how to deal with blood on a quilt. Take a cotton ball and put it in your mouth and get it wet with your own saliva and dab it on and on the spot. It will take care of it.

    Sure glad it wasn't worse than it was. I have sewn my glove to a couple of quilts a couple of times, good thing there was extra room at the end of my finger.

    Oh my gosh. I have sewed my finger before, but just the tip. I hope it stops hurting quickly, so you can get back to sewing.

    That hurts I've been there and it does get better believe it or not. Just make sure you clean it and put some antibiotic cream if it's open so it heals quickly. I feel your pain from my memories. Good luck healing quickly. Sue

    Ouch, ouch, ouch! I barely poked my finger one day and bleed like a stuck pig. I bet that did hurt. Glad you did not mess up the quilt. Great save! Take care of it so it does not get infected.
