I guess I'm done for the day.

I only got one quilt quilted today, it's been an eventful day.
This is the darling quilt that I quilted for Mary Ann today! I think it turned out super cute! 
After I was finished with this quilt and getting ready to start another one I dropped my rotary cutter and cut two of my toes. After I finally got it cleaned up and to stop bleeding I decided I was done for the day. 
Have you ever cut your feet with a rotary cutter?
Maybe I'm just crazy! :)

  1. Ow. Hope the cut heals up fast. I hate it when I hurt my feet because it seems like it takes twice as long as anywhere else to heal up.

    I've come close to cutting my feet with a dropped rotary cutter a few times, but so far I have, thankfully, always managed to do a fast "EEEK!" dance shuffle and escape unscathed.

  3. Holy smokes, girl! OUCH! I've dropped the awl in my foot but not the rotary cutter. My toes cringe just at the thought.

    Your quilting is absolutely beautiful and very inspiring! I can only hope to someday dream to be so good.

    Take care and watch those toes!

  5. First rule of using a rotary cutter, is something we all need to blog about, email about, shout out to friends, and remind those we care about....

    CLOSE THE SAFETY AFTER EACH CUT, not after each use, or after each quilt. Every cut, click the safety. Great habit to be in and a good safety habit to reinforce with quilting friends.

    I hope your foot is ok ad you heal quickly.

  6. I hope your foot is ok. I dropped a wood chisel on my foot and it hit a toenail, took part of it off and bled and bled for along time. Then I went to work and stood on it for 10 hours. Needless to say, I am not allowed to hang on to any more wood chisels.

  8. ow! I've given myself some pretty nasty cuts on my fingers with my rotary cutter, but never my toes.

    Sorry you had to go through that! But, the quilt is pretty, pretty, pretty.

  9. You've got to keep your dropping and hopping matched up! Barefoot is a lovely way to travel...but the kitchen and other rooms with tools can be dangerous. Hope it heals quickly and that you relax and enjoy the view with your feet up if necessary to hasten the process. You do lovley work. I'd love to be your customer some time.

  11. What a beautiful quilt! I have cut the end of my finger once with the rotary. It's not fun. Take care!

  12. I've cut through my finger nail with the rotary cutter, but fortunately never dropped it on my feet. At least it's still summer and you can go around barefoot and let it heal. I'm in agreement with SewCalGal though - close the blade after every cut!

  13. This quilt turned out lovely ! ! ! if you quilt barefoot now ; you WILL regret it when you get older and you'll have to wear shoes with SUPPORT when you're on your feet (yes , that's me now !) ; maybe you should start wearing steel toed quilting shoes now ( HA ) . Hope your toes are ok !

  15. I came close! I almost NEVER follow conventional advice and hit the safety before putting my rotary cutter down. One time, I did, and dropped the cutter right on my foot. Thank goodness it was closed! It still dented the blade (from the floor, not my foot) and of course, it was a brand new blade.

  18. I DID THAT SAME THING! Oh, I'm having flashbacks. It cut my baby toe and the one next to it, where of course it's impossible to get a band-aid. Those things are wicked sharp! I hope you heal quickly. Oh! and what a gorgeous quilting job! :)
