Finger update - All is well

1.11.2011

I have pictures! No worries, they aren't graphic.

To catch up the new readers *waving*, on Nov. 26th, at 9:00 pm, I placed a shiny new rotary blade in my cutter....

{which, btw, is still being used today and is still amazingly sharp. I bought a titanium one at Joann's when they were on sale. I will definitely buy more of them in the future}

..and proceded to cut some fabric. Three or four cuts into my play time, I got careless and I lopped off a good portion of the side of my index finger. Ouch, is an understatement and a {not} fun trip to the ER was the result.

But lookee here...Six and a half weeks later, it's all better.



It's only slightly deformed on the one side. 


This is one experience that I don't want to repeat. Please learn from my mishap: respect your rotary cutters. They really can be dangerous.

  7. My grand daughter rolled the rotary cutter over my finger when I was teaching her how to use it.... Took a minute for us to notice as it didn't hurt right a way :-) We both got a lesson in being watchful :-)
