Finishing up this bag today, I nicked my wrist slightly with the point of my scissors. Irritating. My skin is so tough now, I don't even bleed hardly ever at all on the stuff I make. (I should use that in my product descriptions shouldn't I?) No blood was shed in the making of this item...Later on, I grabbed the fabric right on a pin and pricked the center of my thumb - I mean I GRABBED and the pin STUCK ME. I felt an electrical impulse go straight from the prick to my medula oblongata and something inside me was released. Thank you doctor, that's just what I needed. Involuntary accupuncture. Man, that was good.
