Default Re: Blew up my glue gun!!!

I hope you feel better soon. I read this to my husband and all he could do was roll his eyes and shake his head. I too have broken my toe while making bows! My foot slipped off the bar stool and hit the kitchen counter. I almost passed out from the pain. I went to the doctor and the xray showed that I had a crack all the way accross my big toe. My doctor was impressed. Did I mention I was 8 months pregnant? The doctor put me in a shoe because she did not want me to loose my balance and fall. It was such a sad sight. I had the pregnancy waddle and a broken toe limp.

Linda I hope you get better soon. Broken toes are not fun.

Maeve I hope you get well soon too.

Ouch! Sorry about all that! Hopefully others will learn from our mistakes and not repeat them. I'm surprised you didn't throw something at dh, lol! Bad timing for a lecture! But at least he did get you some boots.

Never make bows bare foot.

I keep my woodburner in a frying pan and the glue gun on a cookie sheet. That way their paths don't cross. Also gives me an excuse not to cook.

My DH would have probably laughed at me b/c I do that kind of stuff all the time. I practically have to wear pants b.c hot glue has dripped on my legs so many times. I may have to add shoes to my bow making uniform now!!!

How are you doing? Is your foot healing okay?

That totally sounded like something I could have done. Who would have though that crafters need steel toe boots to ensure their safety?

UGH SO SORRY! Something similar happened to me. Mine got overheated. It made the biggest pop I think my head hit the ceiling. I thought it was a gun.

Hope you feel better soon!

It actually doesn't seem to be healing at all. It is still really swollen and has pushed my small toe right over and has caused a corn on my small toe. Am off to the doctors again now and have an appointment with the podiatrist later today. But the good news is that my DH fixed my glue gun for me (it's just a bit shorter in the cord now) and so I'm well and truly back into production PS - I still don't wear shoes when I work!! I just hope it's okay by the end of the month as we're off to UK and Europe and I think I'm expected to wear shoes for that!
Cheers Linda

Ow, I hope they can help you get it to heal. That just sounds painful!
