Here I am, supposedly going to teach my young granddaughter how to sew. Uh huh.... sure, first, I have to repair my grandson's favorite "blankie".
Next thing I know, I'm sewing through my finger AND my fingernail!
I was bleeding through the top of my fingernail as well as the bottom of my fingertip.
Then I saw the needle....
When it hit the bone in my finger, it must have just bent up! It looks like a darning needle.
Oh dear, how do I explain this to my new student???
