    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.

    Oh, that darn cat! But of course he wasn't the one who left the blade laying around. Oh, that darn quilter!

    So sorry to hear that--it must have really hurt. It's always the cat's fault!!! I noticed that the cat didn't get hurt, or did you leave that part out. lol

    My jaw dropped open as I read that! Youch!!

    I hope you heal quickly. (At least it wasn't your hand...but was it your pedal foot?!!?)

    Feel better and stay ahead of the pain! Tylenol, tylenol, tylenol, and maybe some Aleve.

    Paulswalia: I was standing next to my stash and refused to grab any of it and bled all over my beige carpet (which will cost a lot more to replace). I just couldn't bring myself to use any of my fabric

    thank you everyone for the well wishes. No the cat didn't get punished. It was my fault for leaving the blade unattended. And yes, it is my pedal foot. Oh well, a lesson learned the hard way won't be forgotten soon.

    Ahh, a true quilter! Save the stash! On the serious side, I hope you heal quickly, and feel better soon.

    I was at my sister's once helping with a quilt when I noticed that she had left her rotary cutter open! I told her that is a quilter's sin, and what would have happened if one of her grandkids got a hold of it?
