The Hazards of Sewing...

As some of you may know, I recently learned how to use a sewing machine and I have been sewing a few baby things (Mostly bibs, burp cloths, and a little applique). I found a great new fabric store that carries all of this wonderful Michael Miller fabric, so I bought a few different prints and planned on sewing some bib sets for gifts this weekend. We had a wonderfully lazy weekend and Logan even slept in 'til 11:00 on Sunday. By 3:00, I was still in my pajamas doing a little sewing. I guess I got a little distracted, because my finger got caught in my machine and it sewed right through it....3 times...and then the needle broke off...IN MY FINGER!

So off I went to the ER, in my nightgown, to get a sewing needle taken out of my finger. So embarrassing. I did, at least, throw some pajama pants on underneath my nightgown and put my good arm through a zip up hoodie. :/ After taking X-rays to make sure it wasn't bent in there, they just pulled it out and gave me an antibiotic. Both my mother and my husband wanted to pull it out with a pair of pliers. They should have known better than that, I am such a baby.

It didn't put too big of a dent into my sewing time, though, and I did get a few new things made. Some bib sets, wipe cases, and a few sassy little checkbook covers. Check them out in my Etsy shop :)
