Now that's the way we have to approach our DHs! Make it a pre-emptive strike. To prevent an ER trip we need the die cut machine! Masterful!
Had to edit this...I was so excited about "the plan" I forgot to say I'm sorry for your injury.

The funniest part was the nurse asked me Do you live in a safe home environment?" I looked at her and replied "Clearly not." So $800 later I was sent home to heal. As was noted: That could buy a lot of fabric and equipment. Stay safe everyone, it only takes a moment of inattention.
She had to ask you if you live in a safe environment or if you feel safe at home...due to spousal abuse. Funny in this situation not in others.

My DH was a meatcutter for years and was always cutting his fingers. The best treatment for sliced fingers he ever got was from an ER Doc that told him to soak it in soapy (dish soap) hot water for as long as he could stand to keep his hand in the water. We had to keep changing the water to keep it hot and he kept it in there for several hours. Took out all the soreness and it healed very quickly. That particular time he had sliced the end off one of his fingers with a lunchmeat slicer.

Cutting is the least thing I like most about quilting, so after rotary cutting for so long I decided its time for a cutter & dies. i still rotary cut but just not as often.

OK Now I'm really cringing!!! Reminds me of the time my DH came in with a blood soaked towel wrapped around his thumb and hand and said "I think you're gonna have to drive."

Yep - Did the same thing 2 years ago. Still have a flat place on the tip and no fingerprint there. Bled forever and hurt like heck. Please be careful, everyone. They really are dangerous blades.
