Unlike many quilters, I don't embrace all the new tools that flood the shops & shows.  Seems there is a nifty specialty ruler introduced every week.  

My Christmas gift from son/family was a Brother Scan n' Cut machine.  Our small Fiber Frenzy group was introduced to it in the fall and I could really see how helpful it would be for me.

Now, my head is spinning thanks to my pal Kathie who gave Judy Simmons and me a comprehensive lesson on our new Scan n' Cut Brother machines. much to learn. Both of us did videos as we went through the many options of the machine....lots of stops/starts talking over each other & mistakes that helped us learn. 

I came home with evergreen boughs to add to my new landscape art quilt. Here's a sneak peak which of course needs to be appliqu├ęd before adding final touches to the art quilt.

Julie Fei Fan Balzer ( is a mixed media artist (including quilting:) who uses the Brother Scan n Cut a lot and demos it on her You Tube videos from time to time. I do not make art like hers but I enjoy her relentless, nurturing approach to making art. Check her out.

Oh my goodness, what a wonderful Christmas present! I remember how excited you were to try this machine out at one of your group sessions. Sky's the limit for you now. :-)
