needles and pins

When I was a kid, and Mom was teaching me how to sew, she always warned me to be careful that I didn't catch my finger in the needle.  It seemed impossible to me that a person could sew her finger.

After this weekend, I'm a believer.  I hurts a whole lot to sew your finger with a machine.  I don't recommend it.

So, as of this past Friday night, I've renewed my commitment to pinning what I sew.  I will no longer grow lazy and just try to use my fingers to keep things together.  Really.

Crafting can be dangerous.  Darn dangerous.

i think i was burning out literally and it was a sign from God but i did get alot of them sewed for teaching and it saved us a lot of money and love your sweater creatures..... they are lovely and so happy looking.... i think it is marketable or maybe just for little friends. peace and love, mom ps hope you have a good tetanus shot! How did you get your finger out?? OUCH!
