MORE JANE & A Little Sizzix. . .

Yesterday I took the plunge and played with my new Sizzix machine! WOWZER... does it cut fabric great!! Love it. I took it to my sewing circle group and we cut scads of circles for one of the gals who is making a bazillion grapes for an applique quilt. We cut ALL her grapes in just a few minutes! But, we got so carried away playing with the Sizzix that we forgot to take any pictures until the meeting was over! lol. Next time.
DJ Triangle: LS-3
Another DJ tri was finished yesterday. The left side is almost ready to put together. Exciting stuff. Just for fun, I took the little tri's picture in a different place [see above]. Because the bottom melon is muslin and lays over a dark red, I cut a slightly smaller melon and used it for a lining so the red wouldn't shadow through. Of course, I could have simply cut the red away from the back, but decided to line it instead.

That's all for this morning. Sew. . . until next time. . . what are YOU playing with today?

Quilty Hugs,

You keep making great progress. Those triangles do look tricky. I like the special pose. So festive

Great job on the DJ triangle. I haven't seen the Sizzix so will have to check that one out.

Your triangle looks super photo'd on your tree :) But how did you get it to stay up so good!?

Yes Cyn, you have your tree up and done already? lol... ;)))

LOL! Iagree with Rosa! Those Sizzix cutters rock! I'm about to cut a hundred felt trees for a scout project next week. Would NEVER attempt such without my Big Shot!

I see trouble a-coming! Cutting fabric with a Sizzix is addictive. Just sayin'... :D

I got the sizzix last year but my michael's doesn't carry any quilting dies :(
