Sewing Haiku

Me versus the blade . . .
Blade will get me every time.
Day off from sewing.

Don't worry, no fingers were lost in the making of this haiku, only a few ounces of blood. 

Also, it wasn't after 10:00 p.m., there was no wine involved (at least until after the bleeding was stanched) and I'm very glad I misplaced my new rotary cutter blades before my cutter broke -- while I was using it, letting my thumb come down on the blade.

A nurse friend told me this evening I should have had stitches.  Too late now.  I'll live, and have another sewing-related scar to show to the unbelieving.

HI :) LOVE your blog :) Concerning INJURIES :( Hope you heal nicely :) Get to the drugstore and buy a package of BUTTERFLY BAND-AIDS. I call these my STITCHES :) I am a self-employed seamstress with NO health insurance at this time :) I cannot AFFORD a doc OR emergency room visit unless absolutely necessary :) Butterflies PULL a SMALL wound CLOSED. THEN...Put some anti-biotic ointment on it and a regular band-aid over top for a day or so. Check it, leave the butterfly ON IT... for a FEW days.. Of course, if it's inflamed or swollen, get thee to the ER...STAT :(
