I have been working on the stepping stone:

I colored it with alcohol inks.  It will need a couple of coats of Marine Poly before setting outside.
We had a visitor:

Also I bought a new toy:
A Silhouette Cameo with the fabric pkg.
There are a ton of videos on Utube if you want to go on over and check this baby out....
 I can use this new tool to make greeting cards, scrapbooking, and cutting out appliques for quilting.  Also I am hoping I just might be able to use it for mini's...  This is a wonderful item.  It cuts vinyl, paper, fabric.  It can be used in conjunction with quilting, rhinestone's, and etching. I have also read you can use a pen in place of the razor to draw.  I will be busy learning this new tool when it comes in.  Don't think it can replace my sewing machine though. lol....


  1. The stepping stone is gorgeous...too pretty to step on! See, even the deer wants to walk on it! I have not heard of this machine, maybe it is new.

  2. what a beautiful stepping stone; very well done!

  3. I love the stepping stone. I've never seen the "toy" but I know you will enjoy using it in your many crafts. We had a deer in our yard earlier today but I did not get a photo.
    Thanks for checking in and I wish you a lovely week.

  4. Your stepping stone looks very pretty. Love the deer photos. It's fun to get to see them up close. I bet you have a great time with your new "toy." :-) Hope you have a great week!
