blood and sweat

I haven’t shed any tears over superbuzzy yet, but the other day I did draw some blood.

I sliced through my finger with the rotary cutter (I did not, however, drop any blood onto the fabric). I now have this big skin flap, and it’s still pretty tender, so I can’t use my index finger. You don’t realize how much you use all your digits until one of them becomes lame!
And speaking of superbuzzy, Kelly has been working her little tail off on the site, and guess what? We now accept Paypal! We also have a few new items, including a very cool Etsuko Furuya wasp fabric and a super cute postcard booklet, but I am feeling too lazy to upload photos. We’re also going to have a superbuzzy blog soon, and we’re hoping that will keep all our customers informed of small updates and provide ideas and inspiration for all things crafty!

    Aaah! Rotary cutters scare me! I am glad that it wasn’t worse, be careful!

    Ouch! I broke my pinky a few years back, and you sure notice how a full set of fingers come in handy when you’re “missing” one!

    OSHA! Where is OSHA when you need them? I hope you’re OK. BTW, I recently visited Liberty of London’s new haberdashery department and all I could think of was YOU. It’s amazing. If you ever make it to London, you must check out the fabric. Oh, and the tea room isn’t too bad either!

    Ouch! I hate it when I get a cut of any size on my hands because I am forever washing my hands and it stings!
    I can’t wait to see the new fabby! Take care of that finger…

    Hi! I have taken a tiny slice out of my finger with a rotary cutter. Seems to take forever to heal!! They can definitely be dangerous. Did you know there is a mesh-like glove that you can wear on the free hand to prevent that from happening? Not sure what it is made out of but it is cut-free!! Since you probably do a lot of cutting, this might be something you should invest in. LK

    Sorry to hear about your finger. I burned my thumb pretty badly last month and it took a while for it to heal. I felt like I’d basically lost use of my hand…so I feel your pain.

    You poor thing! I guess it was bound to happen, now that you’re in the high-risk fabric industry. Take care.

    Those cutters are SO dangerous. On the birght side, at least you didn’t do it before you got all of those recent orders out!

    ouwee! you don’t think you need stitches? hope the hurt lessens soon….

  11. marne says:

    Ouch! the sacrifices you have to make for us fabric addicts! I hope it stops hurting soon. I love me some Neosporin Plus, it helps with the pain.

    fingers are for licking, not slicing! nice tape job :) be careful silly girl. pink ‘puter should be there any day now….so excited.

    Ouch! I did that last year with the rotary cutter and now I have a nifty little scar on my index finger. Maybe we should form a club. Lol. :o) I hope you heal real soon!
