Be careful

Be careful with your rotary cutter. This is a photo my friend Bjørg (no blogger) mailed me this morning. Poor girl........trying to finish her Angel story book top before deadline tomorrow. And ended up with this huge bandage on her finger.

She says the moral is: Keep your finger ON the ruler and not outside it when you rotary cut.

Saying for today:

Always laugh when you can.
It is cheaper than medicine…

Poor thing. As I was teaching a class one time a woman cut herself with rotary cutter. I felt so bad for her. Hope Bjorg has a speedy recovery.

Ouch! Poor Bjorg. I cut a big hunk off my finger the same way once at a rotary cutting olympics event at a retreat. Needless to say, we don't have that event anymore.

Karen said...

Ouch! That looks none too good. I heard a rotary cutter story that makes me cringe every time I think about it. A great tool but it can be dangerous.
