I GOT A BOO BOO
Oh we have all heard the story and reminded ourselves thousands of times, ROTARY BLADES ARE DANGEROUS, but yes I got the edge of my thumb and cut off a good couple layers of skin. Thankfully I had a fairly long nail that took the majority of the injury.
I am not exactly sure how it happened....either the ruler slipped or the mat slipped and my thumb got in the way. Thankfully no stains got on the quilt block I was attempting to square up. The camera batteries are dead or I would post a picture of the hand embroidered blocks that my daughters Godmothers Mother made. I need to square them all up (12 blocks) add border strips to make them 16 and a half square and join them with some applique blocks I am making....then assemble and hopefully create a wonderful quilt for Godma Connie.
But, I do believe I will hold off for a couple days before attempting to accomplish any more of this project. I am discovering very quickly that with a thumb bandaged the size of Wyoming (LOL) it is actually quite difficult to do things. Great time to get out the cross stitch piece I am working on and see if I can manaveur a needle in and out.
I hope that your day quilting is far less "exotic" and no boo boo's of any kind!
