Here are some of the key blocks that I have completed for my daughter's quilt. I'm kind of tired of keys and locks so I thought I would add embroidered blocks that have key sayings, like "You hold the key to my heart". You would think that it would be easy to find key sayings that are just a few words, but it's not. So if you can think of any good ones, please let me know.
One thing I learned just today when I laid these out to take a picture is that some of my images are backward. The key is facing the wrong way. If I turn it around it's upside down. No mater, whatever I have to do short of discarding them, I'll make them work. Did I mention before that this is the first quilt I have ever made, lol.
The other day when I was reading someone's blog, they mentioned how to print digital stamps and included a link to a U-tube video on how to move them around the page and even enlarge them. Last year when I bought a new computer, I couldn't find my Word program and my new unit didn't come with it free. Now I am using Libre Office and find it to be very easy and similar to Microsoft programs. The only way I have ever enlarged a picture and successfully maintained the scale in the past was to do it using the copier at work so I was excited to learn something new. It was easy to follow the Word instructions in my Office Libre. Not only am I HAPPY, but I am so SELF satisfied that I learned a new technical thing.
