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:
