Yep, that hurt quite a lot! There was one point when we thought Richard was either going to have to cut the needle off the Singer or take the whole thing to the hospital with me. Thankful with much squealing Rich managed to free the needle from the sewing machine then pull it out of my hand.
Yet another war wound to add to the rather impressing collection (including the 1 inch gash I managed to cut into my palm with a scalpel that slipped while cutting greeting cards a few years ago!). This crafting larks not for sissies!
