Monday Mishaps ~ That Extra Cut

I can’t be the only one who’s done it! You ¬†know what I”m talking about… that moment after you cut something – whether it be paper, material or something else. That moment after when you lift up your original project and find you added an extra cut… to something else.

That’s right. I’ve done it on more than one occasion. I’m one of those people who doesn’t always sit at a craft table to do my crafts. I cut my yarn, or paper or whatever right where I am sitting… more often than not, it’s my bed.

Yup, that picture right there is of one of my pillowcases. I sometimes forget just how sharp the scissors I use really are. Yes, they are high carbon stainless, and so sharp they can be used to cut fiberglass (although I don’t do so). I didn’t even feel any extra resistance when I cut either. (I’m hoping that if I get skin in there, I’ll notice BEFORE I cut into myself!) But there’s the proof… and I did it more than once. Ah, well, at least the pillowcase wasn’t expensive!
