Mary and I spent about 5 hours learning this Scan and Cut machine. I found a quilt that has many small pieces to cut and applique and thought that if we conquered that, we’d be well on our way to mastering this machine. I was correct!. And so far, we have learned much, but not conquered the machine. We have to remember all the steps to be able to repeat them. We managed to get a few pieces cut out. The idea is to scan in a pattern or several and the machine will cut them out. Tomorrow, I’ll try and cut a few more out. The instructions had lots of missing bits of knowledge.
Then I took time to work on a pair of short summer socks.
I have finished the heel and have picked up the stitches for the instep,, so can now put these away for working on without the brain in gear and can start another pair.
These are another 15 jars of strawberry jam that will be used as gifts. We like the good sized pieces of strawberry in it that you see floating. We stir them together when we open the jar.
Our daughter and DH is hosting the annual Thanksgiving dinner. She always does a lovely job of decorating. This year I am contributing, with the help of the dollar store, these pumpkins. They now all have her last initial.
And here is an owl for each of the boys. They may enjoy the owls on their doors and they may finish decorating them or leave them as is.
