Can I Sew and Listen at the same time?

OK- before I answer that question at all, let me emphasize that I can't sew. A simple line or square is all I can do! And if you were to look closely at my work, you would notice the lines are always crooked! Now, to answer the above question- No!!! Here is what happened-

I was sewing and Savanah asked me a question, so I turned to look at her, while still sewing, and this is what happened!







I must have sucked my finger up. Because all I know is my thumb had throbbing pain, I looked down at it and saw the needle that had broken off protruding from one side of my thumb (in the back) to the other! Savanah quickly screamed (loudly I might add) "Don't touch me, I am calling 911!" I had to reassure her that I was OK and that 911 wasn't necessary. But she continued to say "get away from me.." She ran and got me a band aid so I could pull it out. I knew it would bleed a lot and it did too!! Man that really creeped Savanah out- then she was really saying "Don't touch me!" (You would think she considered me some form of alien life form the way she reacted)

So word to the wise:

IF YOU CAN"T SEW THAT GREAT, DON"T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE MACHINE!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I had to look away when I saw your finger!!!!!! I don't blame Savanah! Don't touch me either! That must have hurt sooo bad. I am sorry that happened and you are so brave to get a picture when in such pain!

Ew, Bonnie. Yuck--I am so sorry. Have you had a tetanus shot recently?

I admit that Savanah's comments made me laugh--I don't think Truman knows about 911.

I hope you're okay. And I do agree that you are a little bit like Emma Woodhouse. Only not so ditzy, and more naturally generous.

This was a good object lesson for my children. They both were really concerned if you were okay.I said yes and told them that this is what happens when you play by mommy's or grandma's sewing machine. I have a feeling they won't go anywhere near them now! Thanks for the visual, I just about vomited in my lap! I hope you heal quickly!
