Good Fortune, Clue 2 Finished, New Ornament

Bonnie Hunter@ Quiltville's new mystery quilt started 2 weeks ago called Good Fortune.  This is the first time I have done one of her mysteries, and I am trying to keep up.

I finished my pieces for Clue 2. Clue 3 comes out Friday, so I am doing better than last week!






I also finished an ornament.  This is from Robin Kingsley's book called Just Be Claus.  I like how it came out.  I am going to give it as part of my Christmas gift to someone at Bunco.


In other news, after struggling with my older Bernina Artista 185 embroidery machine, and trying to download designs with the Artlink software after my laptop died, I was able to contact support at Bernina and they helped me with my problem.  So I will be able to embroider some gifts this year.  So it has been a good week already.  I have been struggling with this issue for several months now.  My laptop was designated for use with the Bernina and was running on XP.  I lost a lot of designs that are on the hard drive.  If I could find the exact same laptop that ran, they could transfer the hard drive to the new machine.  Overall it was an expensive fix.  I'm so happy I can use their new software, and transfer the designs to my machine now.  The first up is going to be a sweatshirt for one of my son-in-laws who owns a used car lot.  I made him one about 13 years ago and he is still wearing the same sweatshirt.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Computer problems are no fun. I am glad you were able to work yours out, and sorry you lost designs along the way. Is there a way you can make backups or save things on the cloud so that it won't happen again?

Yourr ornament is so special, I love it! Glad your Bernina issues are resolved, computer problems are so frustrating at times.
