    So sorry about your OUCH. I'm such a klutz at so many things but thank goodness (knock on wood) so far I have been able to keep my fingers from being impaled. I have gotten them stuck on pins in fabrics (causing the air to turn blue) and that hurt so can just imagine how much pain would be inflickted with a needle!! Hope you heal quickly.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Oh, you guys are making me get that squeamish feeling all over!! I've done the sewing machine needle, thousands of pins and many, many rotary cutter slices... First aid kid in the cutting table drawer for sure - but I hadn't thought about the pliers before. Great tip!!

    I've been there and done that - not once but twice. Both times I was sewing late at night and was just getting too tired. The first time I really panicked because the needle broke and I couldn't find part of it. Thought it was stuck in my finger, but found it in the fabric.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Eons ago, when my DS was in grade school, I was going on a field trip with his class to the zoo. I was sewing before it was time to go, glanced up at the clock to see how much more time I had & sewed not only thru my thumb, but thru the actual nail. No blood. Yikes! I was scared to pull the needle out, for fear that blood would start spurting all over the kitchen, but I knew I couldn't take a gaggle of 5th graders to the zoo with a needle sticking out of my thumb, so I pulled it out. No blood... none. No pain... none. I kept expecting "the other shoe to drop" but all these years later, nothing. Whew!

    I'm glad you survivev your run-in with Mr. Needle!
