A Productive Day

I took my computer in to see why I couldn't get my embroidery files to save on my memory card. The girl at the shop didn't have any idea. She has a 64 mb card at the shop for sale so we tried it and it worked. She said she has used a 2 gb before so maybe that is the largest I can use.

My husband took the 4 gb card and formatted it and it still would not work. I am going to put a question in on the Janome website and see if the size is the problem or if it might be something else.

Craig was at school and work all day, Kelsey left to go to work at 3, and Larry left to go to work at 2:30 so the house was totally quiet all afternoon and evening. I worked on stitching out the embroidery for the blue baby quilt. I got it all embroidered and even have most of the borders sewed on.

I used my Janome 1600P DB machine for piecing this quilt and do not have a 1/4 inch foot. I can really tell the difference and will be ordering one soon.

Is anyone out there having problem with their return (enter) key on their computers when in blogger? About a month, ago my computer started messing up when hitting the return key to start a new paragraph. When I hit the return key, the cursor will often stay where it is or go back to the beginning of the paragraph I am working on. I then have to use the arrow keys or the mouse to get the cursor where I want it.  I do not have this problem in Microsoft Word.

Well, it is Saturday morning. I just finished watching the Fons and Porter quilting show. I am going to grab a peanut butter bagel with my cup of coffee, have a glass or orange juice, and hit the sewing room. No one will be home with me again today until after Kelsey gets off sometimes after 1 p.m. Then she'll be in and out. So I'll be able to sew all day again. An afternoon walk and church services tonight. What a wonderful, relaxing day.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. I really like the font you have chosen for this quilt, Vivian.

  2. Now that is just a really neat idea for a baby quilt Vivian, great job! Enjoy your day, it's going to be gorgeous in the Ozarks!
