Ouch!

Some orders may have been slightly delayed due to a, um, small accident this past weekend. The short version of the story is that I was tired, the kids were running amok, and my hand was way too close to the needles of the embroidery machine!

Yes, we now know that the powerful machine can in fact put a needle through a finger! The tip of the needle broke off in my finger and was very painful! Fortunately a nice young man in the ER was able to pull the entire thing out through the other side of my finger and it is healing quite nicely. Only 2 stitches were needed to close up the incision and I don't even need pain medicine. In fact, I finished what I was embroidering when I got home!

Let's just say I wont do that again - even though I'm dedicated to getting the job done! It was just plain dumb and I should have known better! Its back to business as usual!

I am totally fine! Amazingly I don't even need tylenol - I have a couple of stitches, but I hadrly notice it - thankfully!
