Owwww!

So I finally did it. After sewing for YEARS and years on a sewing machine, I finally did it. Sewed through my finger. Hurt like a %&^%*&% too. I was going to link to a picture since I'm gross like that, but I haven't dared to take the bandage off to see the wreckage yet. I learned a valuable lesson... when trying to get around a magnet snap and none of your presser feet will fit around it, don't just take the presser foot off! Don't do it!

I did get some great wallets made though from my new fabric! I've never made so many of the same item so many times in a row, and still enjoyed making them this much! I've made 250+ pairs of Ninja Pants, but never more than 10 at a time. And by the 5th one of that long run, I was sick of making them! I've always been a collector of things, and I just want to lay out every one of my Slapdash Wallets and stare at them. I love to see them lined up on the table for my shows. Sometimes I open a whole bunch of them and just look at them and how cool they are with all the different colors. I am such a weird chick. With maybe just a hint of narcississtic tendencies. LoL.

Monday Morning UPDATE:
The finger is doing pretty well. It doesn't look nearly as nasty as it did yesterday. I can also type again, so that's a major plus! I'm still not ever going to try to sew like that again...

The very thought of a sewing needle through my finger makes me feel,...faint.
