First with the help of my personal IT person I discovered I had the cutter blade upside down in the Cameo,  Worked great after a bit of tweaking and turning the cutter.  I did not secure the misty fuse tight enough to the fabric –  watching it cut was interesting and of course it stuck to the mat.  But here it is “MAIDEN CUT”


On to the onions.  Used a little less then a half yard by 45″ of cotton and sprayed with vinegar, added onions to 1/2 then folded the other end over and sprayed again.  Rolled it tight and secured then steamed for 1 hour 20 minutes,  Then wash out and dried.  Pressed and the iron spit out water which changed the color where the water landed.  Have not rewashed but will then see if changes again..
