Q: How do you know when sewing turns bad? A: A needle goes through your fingernail, and all the way through your finger. The picture above is a very bent needle that I pulled out of my finger earlier today after a sewing mishap.
No, the battle wound does not look big, in fact you may need a magna-fine glass to see anything other than a dot on my nail. The pain is much worse. After passing out twice, and throwing up this is the measly little battle wound I have been left with.
You may think it odd to pass out and get sick, however, I have always been known to pass out when I get really hurt. It has come to the point that I can recognize it way before it happens which gives me plenty of time to dive to the floor and lay down. I use to hit the counter on my way down as a child while my mom did my hair.
I don't know why I pass out so much, I am in no way bothered by blood, and stuff. It is a mystery.
Oh, here is a picture of the needle still in my machine after I removed my finger from it. Luckily my nephew's Birthday gift did not get any of the blood, sweat, or tears that were literally involved with making it for him.
The nicest thing about my injury that was after I passed out the first time, Summer came to my rescue and asked if I wanted her to say a prayer. She amazed me that she even thought of saying one. It was such a sincere, and thoughtful prayer as well. I am grateful to her for administering her own first aid to me as I really did need some sort of help.
Lesson learned: Don't be in such a hurry, and keep your fingers out of the way of the needle.
