Happy Canada Day, which I'm also declaring Rotary Cutter Safety Day. I was looking forward to some serious sewing time--I hurt my back while I was in Toronto last week and haven't been able to sit or stand comfortably for any reasonable length of time until today, and I was finally feeling up for sewing. After less than fifteen minutes, though, I stupidly managed to cut my left index finger while cutting fabric with a rotary cutter. I did something similar about ten or fifteen years ago, so I guess it's about high time that I got another reminder the hard way to keep my fingers behind the ruler's edge. Now I'm sitting here trying to staunch the bleeding and typing one-handed. Remember--let's be careful out there!
