    I can't believe...

    Tuesday night I was just getting ready to change the my rotary cutter blade when my sister called. After visiting with her I went back to my sewing room and during the time I was on the phone my cat had knocked the new blade on the floor. I was barefoot and yup, stepped on it and had to get six stitches. Lesson learned--don't interrupt the process of changing blades and getting rid of the old ones, for any reason at all.

    Wow, even the old ones are viciously sharp. I bet that went deep. It's always the cat's fault around here.

    So sorry that happened. I slice into my finger with one and it was not a pretty sight. Take care.
