I'm posting these three rules today as a warning. Why? Because this could happen to any one of us!
1. Pay attention to your rotary cutter, only expose that cutting blade when you have your cutter poised over your fabric to make that one cut and then slide the guard back into position. Every. Single. Time.
2. Wear shoes in your sewing space, real shoes... no more bare feet, sandals or flip-flops; it's not worth the risk.
3. Clean up your sewing/cutting area frequently: you'd be amazed at how quickly those piles of accumulating scraps can obscure your workspace and cause you to lose sight of your rotary cutter or other sharp objects... if you can't see them you don't have control of them.
Develop a heightened awareness and exercise caution around all of your tools; remember: they stay sharp, especially when we don't! Please join me in a prayer for complete and speedy healing for my friend; she is eager to get up on her feet and back to work soon.
Life is Good!
