At last I’ve got something to show you on my workdesk this Wednesday. Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to get my Cougar cutting machine up and running again (she’s called Sheba) – she’s been in deep hibernation for several years as I’ve been dealing with other more pressing matters in my life during that time!
After much correspondence to and fro on the wonderful Thyme Machines forum, those wonderful people on there have helped me on the way and Sheba is in action again, just in time for me to make a card for a new baby – baby steps, you could say. You can see the finished card and its matching tag on the table. I have yet to make a card insert for it, which I am going to design on the computer and print out.
To the right you can see my Final Cut Pro folder with notes and instructions for using this video editing software on the Mac – not that I’ve done a lot recently, and that’s another thing that needs to be brought up to speed again soon. On top of the folder are my instructions on designing and cutting stencils using Sheba. The same cut file I used for the baby footprints has also been made into a stencil.
Since I last joined in with WOYWW I have been very busy, and have been attending a 5-week course at the cancer support and info centre at our local hospital entitled “Moving On After Cancer” which is proving to be extremely interesting and very helpful. Yesterday afternoon was session 3 of the course. You will notice that there are some new page tabs at the top of my blog, covering the sessions, if anyone is interested in reading them. I have had some good feedback from the cancer forum I am on – this sort of support is sadly lacking in other parts of the world, notably the USA and Australia, and I am happy to pass on the excellent information we are receiving.
Have a good week, everybody.
