SNOW and Other Stuff

Yea!!!  Finally we got some snow, okay so it was only a dusting, but it covered the ground and crunched under foot.  Seems like many places are having record amounts of snow and the St Louis area has been left out 🙁

So what did I accomplish on this holiday weekend?  See the Minky strip sewn into the backing for the Dino quilt?  Love that Minky.

You turn your back and look who finds themselves a comfy spot, Rail kitty, that’s who.

And here’s the second Mountain quilt being sewn together using Bonnie Hunter’s webbing the top method.

And with the first border…..

So all was going along fine and I was cutting up a shirt for the second border when a small accident occurred.  Gee those rotary cutters are sharp:

My old rotary cutter doesn’t close automatically but my husband bought me a new one that does so I was feeling like the “old dropping the rotary on my foot” fear was history.   Just wasn’t watching out for the old jump the ruler and cut the finger trick.  Three and a half hours, three stitches, some glue (for the fingernail) and I’m on the mend.  I think there’s a cutting glove in my future……06-1680-180

  1. Oh no! Every time I pick up my rotary cutter (which is not nearly as often as I’d like) I automatically hear your safety warnings in my head! But I’m so glad you are ok!

  2. I thought I was the only alone in cutting my finger with rotary cutter. I did that exact same thing in November and this poor finger is still inflamed. I’m glad you are on the mend.
