Last night as I was rotary cutting some fabric for a charity quilt, I wasn't paying enough attention and rotary cut part of my left pointer finger tip right off - nail and all! I was quite shocked, as you may imagine. I don't have my new insurance coverage yet and my finger was spewing all over, so what is a girl to do? Call her daddy, who happens to be a veterinarian but lives 4 states away. After tight wrapping, ice, and multiple tylenol, I am doing better. I didn't have to go to the ER because I can't find the rest of my finger to reattach. It's definitely gruesome-looking and sore, but seems to be fairly superficial and will probably look normal after it's healed. The good news? There's not a drop of blood on the fabric I was cutting!
Anywho, this post is taking awhile to type, as you can imagine, so here's a pic of a quilt top I finished earlier this week. It is also a charity quilt, but not the one I shed blood for! The fabric is all from JoAnn. The pattern is a free download from Connecting Threads.
Keep your fingers clear of the edge! Happy sewing.
