Default Be careful!

I know we all know we're supposed to be careful with our rotary cutters. And I thought I was - but yesterday it slipped, and I cut a large slice of my finger off - enough that I had to go to the clinic and have it cauterized. It wasn't fun! Please, learn from my mistake and be EXTRA careful when cutting!

Wow, that has to hurt!
Thanks for the reminder. I'm sure we all get careless some times.

I feel your pain!!! An experienced sewer but at the time-new to rotary cutters and quilting. I had taken a quilting class-during which our class was warned of the dangers of these tools. I even remember thinking "good point--must committ to memory!"

Well --as I worked on my homework one afternoon and being in a bit of a hurry, I sliced the the top of my middle finger almost completely off ! As I ran to the kitchen sink with my arm in the air--all I could do was cry and mutter "how could I be so stupid?!?!? I know better!" DH was impressed that although tragic I left no blood trail and my finger healed after a few weeks! I did hang my head in shame and lifted my bandaged finger in the air when I returned to class and gave the statement "Teacher was right! They are sharp!"
