Day 355 – Clumsy Crafter

CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!

THE THEME: Clumsy crafter!

My sewing machine is a beast. No, truly, it is. It’s an industrial needle-feed sewing machine, which means it’s approximately the size, weight, and temperment of a menstruating elephant on caffiene pills.

I love her like no other.

That said, when I bought her, the repair guy I purchased her from gave me an item of advice that started thusly:

“WHEN you sew over your finger and GET THE NEEDLE IMBEDDED THROUGH THE BONE, stay calm and turn the wheel. Don’t pull!”

and ended with:

“and then get the the hospital. They might be able to save the finger if it hasn’t been crushed”

This kind of thing might turn some people off of using an item of machinery that CAN SEW THROUGH BONE, but it only made me love her more. It also made me super wary of her finger-eating power, so I’ve only had a few close calls and no finger loss (yet).

However, I am still a clumsy clumsy dumbass, so don’t be surprised if I end up in this situation:

    Your beast was part of my inspiration!

    I think my mom had two pairs of those scissors when I was a kid. One was the “good” pair for fabric, the other had a red piece of string on it, and could be used for paper without getting screamed at.

    Now, because of my mom’s scissor fetish, I have more than a dozen pairs. She keeps giving them to me as presents.

    That happened to me! That’s why I’m normal now.

    Many bookbinders I know have a scar in the same place on the same finger, either from an X-acto knife or a pair of scissors. I count scissors among my many enemies.

    The risks crafting brings! I have sewn my finger in a machine, thankfully just caught the side and was thankfully more a rabid dog machine then an elephant.
