    Was at Skeetersmom's house last week helping her cut some scraps into squares. We were working in the same small space and I put my rotary cutter down for a moment. Fabric got moved and long story short, I went to grab my rotary cutter at the same time she went to cute a piece. You guess it, my finger came in contact with her rotary cutter. Good news is that I didn't bleed on any of the fabric (lol). It's all healed up now, but a good lesson - wear full padding when playing full contact quilting.

    Thanks for posting this. Don't we all get careless with rotary cutters (I'm sure there are a few who never do!) and the blades are so sharp. Glad you didn't lose your finger!!

    Another word of advice...always wear shoes when using your cutter. Makes nasty cut on top of foot when dropped.

    Barbara may decide to never enter my sewing domain ever again!
    I don't think she trusts me anymore...........

    On a brighter note, that gave her an excuse to not do dishes for a while, and we all need a valid excuse once in a while.
