  1. Looks nasty, did you have to go to hospital? When you said about it before I was imagining a small nick not finger loss!

  2. Oh! I am so sorry for you and I really hope you get better soon!
    The exact same thing happened to me before new year's eve and it's really annoying. I had to get a quilt quilted in time for the new year and this made it a bit more complicated :)
    Just rest and read some magazines :)

  3. Big waves of sympathy floating from cloudy Devon- can you feel them?. I saw someone in one of my flickr groups who had taken off the tip of her finger with rotary- the pic still haunts. I bought a gypsy grip off ebay as a result. I once sewed through my finger on the machine, tip of needle broke off inside. Luckily in a&e the dr was a crafter and dextrous- she got it out. I live in fear, I can be clumsy! Hope it repairs fast x

  14. No cutting off of fingers allowed! Didn't anyone ever tell you it's dangerous to slice into your finger with a rotary cutter? ;)

    But seriously, I can't believe that this or a similar accident (sewing through my finger or something) hasn't happened to me yet. I've had WAY too many close calls.

  15. oh dear, sending happy thoughts for fast healing your way. I cut into my thumb last fall and had to get 3 stitches, so I know how this feels!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh no! Hope it heals very quickly! This is the second rotary cutter injury I've seen in the last couple of weeks. I've always been wary of using one now even more so! x

  17. Ouch! I have done this too. So very sorry. Hope it heals quickly. I have a lovely scar to remind me from now on to be a lot more careful. I prefer to think of it a quilting badge of honor :/

  18. You totally have my sympathy! Ive done that and it really HURTS!!! (it does grow back, at least mine did)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Please tell us it's still attached.

    I had a close call this week; I need one of those guards on my ruler.

    Get well soon!

  23. some sympathy coming up!!! is the cutter next to your finger any indication of what happened? that's the impression i got, but i'm hoping to be wrong. man, that must have hurt! get better soon! your sewing machine is waiting for you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh no. lots of sympathy coming your way. a friend of mine who teaches craft workshops just told me the other week that she can't use rotary cutters anymore because the workshop crafters always cut themselves and one almost cut off her thumb. sorry it happened to you too.

  32. Gasp! You're lucky you didn't lose a finger if this happened at the mercy of your rotary cutter. Those suckers are SHARP! They're definitely my go-to weapon in the event of an intruder.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ouch!! Hope you are okay.... (been there myself!)

  35. Oh dear, sympathy from Australia. Hope it gets better soon.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You poor thing. Sympathy from Paris. Is the cut as big as the bandage?

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG hope you recover quickly and can get back on the rotary wheel soooooon. Cutters are so dangerous, razor blades on a wheel is what I tell people. A cut is easily done. Take care.

  38. Oh! I hope it has heal now!!! Last Saturday I also cut myself, I was in a mad panic trying to get all orders posted on Saturday.

    Take care xx
