Have you heard of the ScanNCut by Brother?
I just finished writing an article for examiner.com and I really want to get one! I've thought about getting the cricut or other cutting machine, but they aren't really about sewing and fabric. I really can't picture myself getting into card making.
I can picture using this to put my kids art on to a tee shirt. The videos on youtube make it look easy. I could make stencils for doing the hand embroidery and denim appliques too.
Gotta get the shop cleaned up first. Have been sorting and purging all month. Pretty soon I'll find my table and get back to making!
