oops! I thought, then I was off to find the screwdrivers.
|2. Your machine will now look like this from the bottom. These screws can be removed next, or left in place, as I didn't know that at the time, I removed them.|
|4. Once inside I found the reason for my troubles, so many teeth had fallen off that the cogs wouldn't turn. I had always wondered why it rattled, and occasionally made a snapping noise when in use.|
|5. These cogs were fine, no missing teeth.|
That fixed, I could try out my new Marianne Design dies, there were so many lovely ones I had trouble choosing. The X-Cut is quite a narrow machine, so that did help to reduce my choices.
|These hearts are really lovely, and I'm looking forward to trying out some new card designs with them soon.|
|The bird on a branch is really sweet, I wasn't quite sure it would fit through my X-cut, I promised my sister she could have it if it didn't, but it does so I get to keep it. I bought a Martha Stewart border punch too!|
I also bought a dozen fat quarters, half blues, half greens, and some strips of material with tractors and pirates on. No doubt they'll be showing up in the blog soon.
bye for now, Julia
