    If I won the Brother Scan and Cut,I would use it to make the cards I send out on holidays and to make one of a kind appliques for the clothes,pjs, and pillowcases,I make for my grandchildren.

    What I love about fall! The weather begins to cool making it time to work on all of the larger, heavier projects on your mind. Also the colors of fall are so inspiring. There is more time to work on things due to the long evenings. Fall truly is my favorite time of the year!

    A little creativity goes a long way! A ninth grader dreamed up my favorite last minute costume. He cut holes for his head and arms in a giant gift-wrapped box and put a bow on top of his head. The tag read, “To: Women From: God.” I still laugh out loud when I think about it.
