Only days ago I was consoling Tasia for her finger burn and now I succeeded to get the machine sewing needle through my left hand’s index nail! I’ve had other “adventures” before, but never including a nail! It looks like I’m going to survive this one and I thought it’s a good time to really scare other sewers out there so that this doesn’t happen to them – for that best would have been pictures but I’ll resist the temptation;) Feel free to contribute with other scary stories, advice, or just to tell me what a fool I am! I certainly feel like one! We often talk about and admire the good part of sewing- our finished projects and things we learn (without hurting ourselves) but if you’re new to sewing keep in mind that your new best friend can become your enemy! And if you’re not new I would be delighted to find out you never dealt with any injury! I know when we buy a sewing machine we go quickly through the safety measures, like “of course, they had to put that in a manual or of course, I’m not that silly” but… I was!
