Mrs. O'Quilts, there will be NO cursing, maybe crying, but no bad words.

The midnight quilting hour Sunday night has left a size 80/12 universal sewing machine needle tightly wadded in my index finger.
It broke at the neck of the needle, leaving all the rest in my finger,
It is so ensconced, that the 3 hours spent in the hand surgeon's office today
was to no avail.
 He could not get it out. It has even touched the bone..you see.
Not that he tried,.  the x-ray clearly told him so.

This means an out-patient surgery for me tomorrow at noon.
I just cannot believe it.
This time I will not inconvenience my poor sister who works 24/7.
Sheila will drop me off.
When I am ready to go, I will give my friends a call!!!
I am not a patient person.
And to think that I lecture my dear daughter on safe occupations.
Instead of snow- shoeing , climbing mountains with cliffs and rattlesnakes..
My girl should be sewing!!!!!

Who would have guessed that quilting is a dangerous sport???!! Oh, except for a quilter, of course! Beware of sharp objects :):) I just heard a lecture about rotary cutters and their dangers. Hmm. Guess I like to live dangerously as well as you! Be quickly healed, dear friend.

I don't curse but when I saw the xray - "holy cow". Always something - did I tell you I am staying indoors this month. It is cold and ice here. Good luck.

Yes, we sewists play with dangerous things -- pins, many horse-power machines pushing needles, scissors, rotary cutters.
Please be a patient patient. Hoping you heal quickly.
