    Man that does sound painful. It's one of the reasons I don't let non quilters use the rotary cutter. It can happen so fast. Sorry to hear you hurt your paw!

    Ouch' so sorry to here that. I do worry about cutting my myself. As for dropping it on my foot, I did drop a pair of scesors at work and would you know it went point down and got my toe, was wearing open toe shoes. I traded my push close cutter for one that closes when you release the handle.

    Oh my Gosh.. You must be my twin.. LOl I did the exact same thing 2 weeks ago. It happened so fast I didnt even realize at first I cut the whole side of my index finger off. It was from the top of my finger all the way to the bottom of my nail. It was hanging by a small piece of skin.. I thought I was gonna pass out.. Anyway I cleaned it and put strips on it hoping it would reattach because I really didnt want to go get stiches. Anyway about a week later the whole side fell off when I was changing the bandage. It is still deformed but doesnt hurt anymore. I really leaned my lesson the hard way. Now I know why they always wear a glove on Fons and Porter Love of Quilting. They are alot smarter than me.
    Happy Healing..

    OMG, I did the very same thing to the very same finger. It bled for 3 days even with pressure. The nerves in that fingertip were numb for a very long time.
    Those tools are dangerous weapons

    I know its not funny, but some of the posts about this had me laughing.
    I believe if I sew/quilt long enough, something is bound to happen.
    I've had many needle stabs, including one with sewing machine needle pinning my finger to the feed dogs (many years ago - very old Singer when I was a child), but knock-on-wood (just knuckled top of my head) no cuts with rotary cutter yet - good reason to stop cutting when I get tired.
    Hoping it heals quickly,
    Jan

    As I read your post and all the others, I looked down at my right hand where it still red where I cut it yesterday with a rotary cutter, from second joint back to joint of fist. Boy does it hurt. Like everyone else, had a hard time getting it to stop bleeding, yes I take an aspirin a day. Just another reminder to be very careful.
