Ouch! That hurt… 

I did something that I’ve never done before today, and hopefully won’t be doing again. I cut the side of my finger while cutting fabric with a rotary cutter.  OUCH! Now, I’ve been close a few times and nipped my finger nail, but never my actual finger.  It’s not really as bad as it sounds. Don’t get me wrong, it took a nice chunk out of my finger, but Neosporin and a band-aid is really all I needed. (After a few choice words of course.)

Moral of the story? Pay attention when you’re using any cutting device! Even if you’ve done the same thing a million times, it only takes one time to seriously hurt yourself.

Okay, so what was I making that caused me to shed blood? Funny you should ask, because at least this quilt top is finished and I  have something to show for all my pain and suffering 😉.

Okay so that’s a bit hard to see. Here is a closer look…

Well these pictures came out darker than expected. But yes, that is a Christmas quilt. Silver and Gold. This will look great with my Christmas ornaments as they are Silver, Gold, and Chocolate.

Have you done any projects for Christmas yet?

    1. I usually stay away from fabrics like this because of the sparkle. I am always afraid the sparkle will wash out or fade or something. But I figured since it is a Christmas quilt it won’t be used quite as much as an “everyday” quilt. Plus it was so pretty, who can resist that?!
