Having spent the past week in hospital and not being able to stand on my foot for another month ,I should have lots of designs sorted onto files , every nurse that comes into my room like to see what I am doing and are amazed when I press sew on Embird and show them how it will sew out , it is taking the pain off my mind for awhile .

sorry you are in pain and in the hospital, hope you are better soon. And do hope you can go home and embroider for real very soon.

Whatever it takes to distract from pain is a good thing. Sounds like you will have lots of pieces to stitch out when you return to your machine. I hope I catch them in projects.

Sorry to hear that you are in the hospital, but I am glad to see that you are able to do something you like doing. I can imagine the nurses expressions seeing your Embird . Have fun, heal soon and have minimal discomfort

May your recuperation period exceed your wishes to get computer sorted out. Hoping it's fast and less painful too.

Hope you don't have to stay in the hospital the whole time and that the pain subsides and healing starts. Sounds like you have a positive attitude and that will help you along. Get all those designs sorted and organized!
My husband broke both ankles last week but considers himself lucky that he does not have to have surgery . Yesterday he got "boots" for both feet so is starting to be able to move a bit. I wonder if I can get him to do my designs???!!! Good luck to you.

I hope you recover quickly.
The software simulation is always fascinating to see, even when you have used that feature hundreds of times.

Fortunately most software suites have the option, which is a must for digitisers - a lot of mistakes can be discovered before the first stitch-out. I just noticed I had one colour in the wrong place in a new design - and I'm glad I could correct it before I stitch my first try in a few moments.

Embird has a feature my 6D does not have: you can use a stitch simulation as a screensaver - and I am proud enough of some of my designs to use them that way. Just select a design in Manager then Alt+F and save it as a .scr file.

Hi Cathy, I do hope your surgery went well and that you will be back up on your feet sooner than later. It always gives me great satisfaction sorting things into their proper files.

Now, if only I can find time to sit down at my computer and name all the hundreds of pictures we took on our European White Christmas holiday!!!

I love watching Embird sew out designs it's fascinating to watch - Meg has Embird and it's fun to see how things are digitised. Love Chris
