QofToday 5/05/11 You got hurt How????
When is the last time your finger got in the way and you sewed your finger???? or You injured yourself in the Hazardous Sport of Quilting??? Please share....and laughing is allowed.
Two days ago, I was quilting white (lots of white on this quilt) on my Pfaff Grand Hobby Quilter (on a frame) and I stupidly stuck my finger in the needle path on the start - caught the edge of my middle finger once with the needle down movement, then I stupidly moved my finger up into the needle after I raised the needle for a second puncture. Blood! Ouch! Ran into DH's office and grabbed the edge of a paper towel and some scotch tape and wrapped my finger to keep on quilting. Today it really hurts :). I haven't sewn my finger in a long time. I did get the blood drops out of the quilt with the cotton thread spit trick.
What dumb injuries have you had while sewing/quilting? Please don't tell me you've cut off your fingers - that's just plain not funny!
