Well golly gee…we all know how dangerous those sharp rotary cutting blades are. And many know how painful a machine needle through the finger is….or the plentiful pricks from a hand needle. But who would have thought there was danger lurking in the heavy plastic cutting rulers. They look so innocent just waiting to attack.
I found that out the hard way. This is my foot a few days after the initial bite. I even had shoes and socks on but that ruler jumped right off the cutting table and aimed its sharp corners straight for my instep. It hurt…a LOT…but we had errands to run so I didn’t even take a look. The next morning when I put my slippers on it was red and swollen and hurt like heck. I didn’t take a photo then since I wouldn’t want to gross you out.
So here is hoping you all will have a SAFE quilting new year. You might check out some fashionable steel toed boots to wear in the studio to go along with that cutting glove that protects your hands from the rotary cutter. Who knew???
