Does your iron ever sting you?

When I make quilt blocks I keep the iron on a pad next to me so I can press as I go.
Yesterday, for some reason I missed the fabric and touched my left hand.  Just for a split second.   This what it looked like...ouch!

Today it there is a nice blister about 1/4 inch thick. I do not want to pop it because it heals quicker if you don't pot blisters.
I was shocked at how fast it burned me.  
So, be careful when you sew and have an iron nearby!

boo hoo......this too shall pass!


  1. I hope you have a nice aloe plant to cut a little bit off and rub on that burn! I'm sorry you hurt!

    Your cutouts came today and they are perfect! I can't wait to start putting this together for Peg.

  2. I'm glad you like the cut outs. I was afraid they were too small. I mailed you three more today.
