Dangerous work Friday
Well I had hoped to have a quilt to show you, but I had a little accident. I had a 4" strip left at the bottom of the quilt I'm working on and I was basting the bottom down and ran over my pointer finger with the needle. These machines stitch really fast, so I don't know if you can visualize this but the needle actually pierced through the center of my fingernail and came out the other side. I could not believe it. I had to pull the broken needle out of my fingernail. I put some antibiotic cream on and some gauze and then I iced it. My first thought was, I hope my machine is okay so I can finish the quilt. I am insane. It was because I was trying to hurry and finish the quilt because my husband was waiting for me so we could watch one of the news programs we normally watch together. I learned an important lesson ... no more rushing. I am pretty sure its going to be okay. It does throb, but you would too if you had a needle driven into you! Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with news that my finger is fine and the quilt is finished!
