Well today was the first day I have had a chance to do any embroidery sewing at all.

Hubby had a nasty fall a couple of weekends ago and had an overnight stay in Hospital. Since the daily visits at home by the Nurse and Physio.
So today was a free day form all of that. Put the Air con on at 6 am as the heat is forecast to be bad again today. Got breakfast out of the way for both of us and off I go to sew.
Do you know how some times our brain just doesn't work quite right? I was so excited to get started I forgot to check the format of the design before I put it on the USB for the machine. Spent a good 10 minutes trying to find in in the machine. It was not there. Took it back to the computer yes it is there. Back to the machine no it is not there. So back I go to the computer again and that is when I see it is the wrong format for the machine. Fixed it and all systems go.
As my Mum used to say "go slower and you will get there faster"
So to anyone having drama's with your machine not showing design check the format it could be your fault. LOL.

I have a machine that takes anything I can see in the software, although I like to stick with pes. I learned that with Christie here. We both learn so much, I think the saying goes... 2 heads are better than one! Lol! Glad hubby is good, enjoy your stitchin!

Mum was right. I have always said " the hurried I go , the slower I get" lol usually because I miss something in between. Hope hubby is much, much better now.

I knew I was on a tight time frame and wanted to get so much done but it took longer to get started with me doing silly things.
Hubby is feeling better on Friday I take him to see our Doctor and he wants to go for coffee while we are out so that is a positive. Thanks for your concern

I'm so glad things are looking better for you and your hubby. Enjoy every chance you get to stitch.

Yes I was so pleased with the bows. They were the 2 in a hoop so keen to try another size.

Sorry to hear about your husband's fall, Barbara, but glad he is on the mend. I have had days just like this! Glad you finally got it all sorted out. Your projects look fabulous.

Thanks things slowly getting back to normal.

So sorry to hear that you were having machine issues. It's easy to do. My Brother won't take any other format than PES, so I have to make sure I put that one in each time. For the Husqvarna there are a few I can use. Your sewing projects turned out great by the way. Hope hubby is recovering well. Love Chris

Machine issues were all mine too much on my mind.

I know just how you feel. Had to call the ambulance for my hubby this mornng. He woke at 5am with the shakes and then started vomiting. They did a few tests and xrays. Thank goodness he only needed some antibiotics. It threw me out for the whole day. Hope your hubby will be up and about without having the nurses and physio coming in all the time. I know how disrupting that is. Hugs to you both.

Things are improving he is pottering around with a walking stick slowly getting there.
Hope your Hubby is feeling better and the antibiotics fix him.

Oh boy I have done that. As I see, once you got going, you were really busy and created some great items. I hope your husband is feeling a whole lot better.

Yes I was pleased I got something finished. Than you he is slowly getting a bit more mobile. Still having visits by nurse
but not daily so some free hours.
