With the news that my 96-year old MIL is now out of the hospital, out of rehab and heading home, we are hoping that better times are ahead! Approximately 3 months ago she had a slight stroke, then in September she fell and broke her hip and had to undergo surgery. That went fine and 2 days later she developed an intestinal infection that almost did her in. She has made a full recovery and everyone is truly amazed. When the doctor's told her she was a "miracle," her response was "when you have 4 churchs, family and people you don't know but your children know on the internet praying for you, you can't do anything BUT get better!" Amen to that.
I was lucky enough to attend a Floriani seminar at Quilts n Lace quilt shop in Melbourne last month and had a ball. The Floriani software is simply amazing AND when you purchase it you are guaranteed FREE upgrades for life! Plus you receive free patterns every month. I had been to a previous seminar last year and received lots of really neat embroidery thread, stablizers and embroidery patterns to use on my embroidery machine. The more I thought about the program, the more I liked it. I have 3D software for my viking, but each time they come out with a new version, you have to pay more money to upgrade. For me to upgrade to the 6D would have been big bucks and to just get the 6D package as though I didn't have the software was even more expensive. So I bit the bullet and got the Floriani software and because I purchased it during an event, it was discounted BIG time. In addition to the software, I received 10 embroidery programs, 100 spools of the Floriani thread in a rainbow of colors, samples of their various stablizers and the peace of mind that I no longer have to purchase upgrades to the program. Even when they change a program, as they recently had to do, members of the Floriani were given the upgrade FREE!
I have been playing with it and am very pleased. If I need help, they are available 24/7 at no charge.
Will be posting a few pics of some quilts that I have completed soon.
