Well, don't really have a lot to share today, but I will give it a whirl. Our week-end was relaxing, (partly anyway!) and that was great. I needed that. However, even though we relaxed and spent time with family, went to church, and ran some easy errands, my mind is still whirling, haha. Not sure if I can stop it even if I want to.
One of the selling points of my machine (yes, sorry, I am STILL jabbering about my new sewing machine) was that you could download embroidery designs from the computer, whisk them onto a jump drive and load them easily onto your machine, therefore giving yourself access to literally thousands of design possibilities. WELL...let me just say this...there was NOTHING quick nor easy about it! My ever patient and wonderous hubby got involved in this little project (this was just one of the things we did that was SUPPOSED to be relaxing, haha) with me and it is was a slow, ponderous, and once again somewhat frustrating project. I spent around an hour or so looking for Mickey Mouse designs, as Sam's birthday party is going to be a Mickey Mouse theme. Seemed like the perfect excuse to me to whip up a coordinating, fun party t-shirt. Right? Well, finding the design WAS easy and fun. But to download it to a jump drive was beyond my computer skills, and this is where hubby entered the process. Oh, and just as a side note, you have to PAY for these designs. Now anybody with half a brain would have realized this of course, but I don't claim to be the sharpest gal sometimes. OBVIOUSLY they cost something. Well, figuring out that most of the designs I was interested in only cost from 2 to maybe 4 dollars, I decided that wasn't too bad because after all I would store them permanently in my machine..right? Well I can't tell the part of downloading the design that became somewhat of a nightmare for hubby, as I would only bungle the details. But it was. You name it, and it happened. But somehow
|PRETTY CUTE HUH? I JUST NOTICED I DIDN'T CUT ONE OF THE JUMP STITCHES BETWEEN T AND I, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.|
This was one of the verses that I read today during my devotional time...how I love it, so I decided to share it with you...
Psalm 8:3-4 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained. What is man that You are mindful of him?
