It doesn't look as bad as it felt in the picture, but it hurt something awful!!
I was teaching P how to thread her new sewing machine. She had her foot on the pedal, I had my finger near the needle and ta dah... I sewed through my finger. It wasn't the actual sewing that hurt, it was the pulling the needle out and THEN the thread. AND trying not to make a big deal out of it because I didn't want P to feel bad.
Seriously... don't sew your finger. It still hurts a week later.
