“You are the…”

“Sewing machine needle through my fingernail…” This is for the BBC swap, “You are the…” bitty block theme! Yes, I have had this happen to me once… That’s why I made her (me) with blue eyes, and the broken needle still stuck in there! LOL! I had to use a clamp to pull it out. Yowza. Good thing I’m a nurse and don’t faint at the site of blood.

I was fmq’ing (free motion quilting) at the time… Maybe under the influence a little. (Dulled the pain a bit!)

    I know how this feels. I did it two weekends ago – but luckily to was closer to the end and my needle snapped, so it wasn’t too bad, took the week to start healing.

    This is absolutely the MOST adorable thing I’ve ever seen!! LOL And I have also done this. In my case, I was blind with rage at a 4 year old! LOL The needle snapped off and slide under my thumbnail. I had to grab the point with pliers, wiggle it around until I found teh hole in the nail, then shove it back up, and then attempt to grab the broken part and yank it out. A LOT of cusswords were said in the process!
