Sometimes I am very surprised. Early in December Mr. Handsome asked what I might want for Christmas. Oh yes, there was something beyond the usual socks and pj's but I did not know if it was too extravagant. Then I some how found an amazing offer for the Cameo Silhouette on a blog.
Mr Handsome was in
on business during the sale event and it was a bit tricky trying to get the information to him so hopefully he could order it (international communication is not so easy sometimes). I had my doubts about the possibilities because of all the logics that were involved at the time. Would he even see the wonderfulness of this amazing machine? Would he think I had way too many toys already and so he would pass on this one? Would he even have the time to open my email and see the amazing offer? I felt like a 6 year old little girl waiting to see if Santa would bring the shiny new pink bike that I wanted. Canada
Well YES he did it! So I now have the software installed on the computer (I had to get through the Christmas/New Years holidays) and today is the day that we begin this new adventure.
I am looking forward to cutting appliques, envelopes, cupcake boxes, card thingy's and stencils. And I found out that I can use the Cameo with my design programs to cut appliques that I draw, we will get there after a bit of practice. Oh the fun we will have!
Speaking of Applique. I have been working on a "Ballard Design" inspired wall quilt. I will be offering a tutorial with fabric requirements and instructions, it will be added by Thursday afternoon and I will "explain" more about it then. I had originally wanted it for Christmas but the holiday sort of got away from me so I have it for Valentines Day. There really is not a season on "Love" is there!
(The pillow is almost done! And happily we are moving into quieter days since the holiday-more time for finishing projects.)
