For those who wanted to know....
Mimi was in Home Ec class - which I think is officially called Consumer and Family Studies but since they seem to change the name of it every year I couldn't be sure -
Anyway- she was trying to sew exactly on the correct line, and leaned in really really close so she could see the needle go in, you know - REALLY close - and then she stepped on the gas.
You know that little threadholder that bobs up and down on the front of the machine?
Yep. Right in the forehead. She had a pretty good sized goose-egg for about 3 days.
(Have fun explaining that at the lunch table!)
