You would think I had learned my lesson after the haircutting fiasco, but no... I left out my good sewing scissors.
Fortunately it was just the quilting gloves that got the chop and not the quilt - whew!
Mum called me after it happened and the message went something like this. "Kate dear (very serious tone)... I'm just calling because Sarah has cut off three fingers ... (a pause that seemed way too long at the time while my heart skipped a beat)... from your quilting gloves... (my heart starts beating again as I sigh a massive sigh of relief!)... I just wanted to let you know so you could buy another pair while you're out if you needed to." Mum... don't scare me like that!
Luckily gloves are cheap and easily replaceable (unlike little fingers), but quilting gloves don't work so well like this! (I feel a little like I'm back in the 80's)
But it takes more than that to stop me from quilting :) Fortunately I found these little thingies for the ends of my fingers in my sewing bag and they work just fine.
By the way, recognise the fabric? I've loved working with it! There's a new pattern brewing and I can't wait to show it to you :)
