Just a few minutes ago I burned my butt. I was sitting on the floor with my hot iron and backed myself up into it.
My sister keeps saying that I "roasted my ham" and "burnt my bacon". Roll Eyes

Whee! What a fun trip down memory lane! Not the injuries of course, just all those old faces Smiley.
I'll come back & list some of my accidents later, there've been a few :/..

Ha!  This thread just reminded me of the time I almost removed a fingertip with a rotary cutter!  Luckily, other than accidentally having the rotary blade on the quilting ruler, I'd followed all the other "rotary cutting best practices" of having my fingers pointing in the direction of cutting and not right next to the edge, so it was only a tiny sliver of finger I lost.

Half-healed, under mature wraps in case anyone's squeamish:

Ouch! Shocked
My hubs once sliced off a chunk of his finger nail with one of those big paper cutters they have at schools (we were in high school). You know, the ones with the big blade on the arm of it? He was cutting papers for a teacher and another student distracted him. I was trying to warn him that his finger was in the way but wasn't quick enough.

I did it to the end of my right index finger with a kitchen mandolin. The warning to use the safety handle is there for a reason, sure wish I'd been smart enough to listen before I mangled my dominant hand. The worst was no crafting while it healed, that ingrained the lesson quite firmly though.
I have metal fiber gloves to use with a rotary cutter, I am still careful but they prevent accidental slips.

Ouch!  Those mandolin things always make me cringe a lil even when I'm watching someone else use one - they're wicked-sharp!

I hadn't heard of metal-fibre gloves for rotary cutting before - probably a really good idea if you have a lot to do in one go, slips are easy to make if there's a chance of zoning out while doing something.

Metal fiber gloves? Sounds useful for the kitchen, too. Lord knows how many times I've nicked my fingers while cutting things.
