One member of my night quilters' guild certainly does.
Are you, like me, guilty of leaving your pins and needles pinned onto the arm rest of your chair? Yes?
Well, last night after coming home from my guild meeting, all my pins and needles were removed and placed into a needle keep and I have, not one, but two pin cushions handy by my chair. That is where they will go from now on.
What prompted this?
Last night, lovely Karin regaled us with a 'tell' part of our show and tell. Although it was hilarious, there was a serious side to her tale. Recently, Karin started to feel something in her butt. It was short, thin and stiff and it was bothering her a little bit. So, off to the doctor she went. He sent her for an ultrasound. The technician said, after looking at the ultrasound, "I've never seen anything like this before". She called in a doctor. The doctor looked and said, "I've never seen anything like this before". So, off she went to have an x-ray. After the x-ray was taken, the doctor called her into the little room off to the side and showed her the x-ray. The doctor says "I think it might be a needle." Karin asks how would he think that? By the head on the needle the doctor replied. To be exact, a #10 Milliners needle is stuck in Karin's butt. She will have to have it surgically removed next month. It is possible the needle has been there for a few months because it has not rusted nor broken up into smaller pieces. Karin doesn't remember sitting on it and never felt a thing until lately.
Needless to say, her story was the butt of many jokes at the hospital.
I laughed until I had tears in my eyes as she regaled us with her tale. Too funny.
That is why, all my pins and needles are now off my arm rest and in a pin cushion and needle keep.
What about you?
Have a great day!
