So this week has been one of those weeks with increased pain levels and some frustration.
When my levels go up, for whatever reason.....I get busy literally. The more active I am, the farther I can push the pain away. So I have completely reorganized the pantry, the cupboard under the kitchen sink, my studio and have been catching up on works in progress in the sewing dept.
I was working on a quilt at midnight----couldn't sleep----first mistake-----got the presser foot caught in the batting, lifted the foot, stuck my finger under the needle to 'unstick' the batting, forgot to take my foot off the foot pedal and here is the result!!!
I had to yell for John to help me. I had him unscrew the needle in the holder and cut the thread and off we went to the ER.
Of course they were all IMPRESSED......one of the nurses took this picture and sent it to my email for me.
This was the x ray taken so they could see the needle. You can see how it goes right through the bone here. I not only sewed my finger twice, I broke the needle and the tip of the bone in my FINGER!
Okay so am going to take a nap and then sew so more....VERY CAREFULLY and my wits about me!
