Who want's to fuse!?

Alrighty. I successfully posted my first tutorial on fusible applique. The feedback was good. I hope it helps some of you overcome your fear of the fuse. :o) But enough about that, let's pick a winner from last weeks Steam-A-Seam contest.

Number 15 is GILL!
Gill said " I've enjoy applique, but always used bondaweb (I think you call it wonder-under!) Is this better or just different??"
Well Gill, you're about to find out! :o)
In other news, today is my cancer-versary. One year ago today I got that phone call that changed my life. Even though thyroid cancer is "the cancer to have", it hasn't been an easy road. At this point I feel it changed my life in a good way because I have become much more greatful for the blessings in my life. So, celebrate with me today by doing something you love! :o)

Congratulations to you and Gill! You are so right, we have to cherish each and every day that is given to us as if it was the last!
Tonight I am going to bake a cake!
