    Poor Seahorse, hope it doesn't hurt too bad.
    I was demonstrating a bead loom at a party on Tuesday and stuck the needle through my finger. More embassarising than anything!
    Does getting paper cuts from envelopes I'm using in the line of business count - I guess not!
    Get well soon,

            This is not for the squeemish, so if you are please stop reading right now!



            I was coiling the top of a head pin into a loop and with out being aware, I curled and curled it inside my finger. It was impossible to get out as the circle formhad well and truly invaded my finger.... trip to the A&E... had to have a scalple to open my poor finger up and then a stitch to close it.

            I am forever being blamed for my family... who all walk around in their stocking feet for bits and pieces that they tread on! I do feel guilty, but have yet to change my habbits of spraying bits of metal and glass everywhere.

                        Sewing Machine punctures...

                        ........at high speed straight through my finger nail too, as it was a Microtex needle and super-sharp.

                        I had to flick up the pressure foot to get it out, which took a lot of deep breaths as I knew it would hurt like f..un. Got the needle out and thought 'Hey...it's not too bad, no blood and doesn't hurt either'

                        Wrong! As soon as I moved my finger, buckets (well a lot anyway) of blood and it was excruciatingly painful.

                        AND because Himself decided that a trip to A&E was needed, I had to have a tetnas shot too (owie) I blame him for that!

                          My friend did exactly the same but hers went right through her finger She got her hubby to call an ambulance because every time she tried to get it out she started to feel faint and sick. She happily told me all about this before I started making Anya's skirt.........
