I've been spending the last two evenings just cutting and cutting and cutting the Angel pieces. Each Angel has 10 pieces so it's been time consuming cutting out. I have not even begun to fuse them down. I have until Feb 10 to have them turned in for the Block Swap. Today, I hope to have them all assembled and fused so that I can begin sewing them down. Maybe one an evening.
I was down in our storage room looking for something and emptied a box of summer things which included this beach towel. It took a while to find what I was looking for and when I turned around, I found little Miss Mandy Candy making herself comfy in the beach towel. She loves to be covered up in a blanket and she won't stop fixing until she is. Luckily, she stayed there while I went and got the camera.
I got to play with my new design cards this past weekend for the slice. I'm even more smitten with it than when I first received it. I love the sizable fonts and designs. Of course you wouldn't want to cut out a full sentence of letters since it would take too long. However, for a quick diecut, this is great! Here you can see I can choose the size from 1-4" in 1/2 increments. It "slices" the design into the card stock. When the excess paper is removed, you have your design.
They were supposed to introduce 12 new design cards yesterday. I hunted for them but then found out they would be released on different months throughout the year. If you haven't seen them yet, here's a link to the upcoming 12 new design cards!
