I have had many friends take a sewing needle through their finger, but have felt perhaps a bit proud of myself for never having such an injury. Yesterday I was humbled. While cutting white (of coarse) bias strips with my rotary cutter and at the same time watching an episode of Larkrise to Candleford (my latest obsession) I sliced a nice chunk off of my pointer finger. It happened so fast and so easily that I was a bit stunned. Let’s just say that a lot of blood followed. Nothing that needed stitches, but I fear that my finger will always be a bit skinnier.
Who knew that sewing could be such a dangerous activity and I wonder, what mishaps have you all had while sewing?
