Never use your rotary cutter when sick. I had the brilliant idea to open a box, and sliced my thumb open. I bled through 3 band-aids!!
I am avoiding my cutter for the moment, until I recover from the cold - and the thumb!!!

Oooo, hope you get to feeling better soon. When my body doesn't feel good, my brain takes a break too and I can really do stupid stuff.

Okay, I can follow the initial thought, but the question immediately comes up "won't it make the cutter dull?"

My head is clogged up with a cold right now, too, and it sure interferes with thinking!

I know how you feel, I dropped mine once, and cut a deep gash in my leg LOL I now have one that automatically closes.

Sounds like a good idea to me. It's on my wish list right now.

We all do silly things when we don't feel good. I hope you get to feeling better and your thumb heals fast.

I hope you soon feel better. My husband once set our house on fire when he didn't feel well. He thought making french fries would help. I was out of town and came home to find him, the kids and the cat at his mother's. We were out of the house 3 months while everything was redone.:cry:

Okay, maybe that didn't make you feel any better and I know your cut still hurts, but it could be worse I guess. Hope you're soon back to cutting! :|

Try avoiding your rotary cutter for anything other than cutting fabric.
