Cajun Corner – Vol.

Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
My wonderful embroidery tech visited last
week.Clothilde received a real good
check-up.She had me order a few parts
for upgrades which have since been received and the machine has been
upgraded.Clothilde is purring like a
kitten and sports a brand new laser and bobbin guard.While here I was able to introduce her to
lemoncello.I believe she really liked
it and I have promised her a bottle on her next visit.We were also able to take her to Tippy’s
Tavern for dinner one night.
Installation of the bobbin guard was a piece of
cake.The laser was a bit more
challenging.Our tech had already
returned to Orlando
before the new laser arrived.She was on
speaker phone as she walked me inch-by-inch through the process of installing
the laser.We got to the point of
aligning the laser when I just could not get that light to shine, as it should,
on the needle hole in the needle plate.There are only 2 screws holding the laser in place and those screws
needed to be a bit loose in order to align the laser.While trying to align, one of the screws came
loose and I just could not get it back in the proper hole.George had to help.To make a long story short, George looked at
the laser and talked to the tech and realized that I could not align the laser
since I had it in backwards.He turned
the laser around, screwed the 2 screws in, and after fiddling a bit with alignment,
it was done.Leave it to me to install
the laser backwards.
Yesterday, once we got off the phone with our
embroidery tech and the laser was installed, I hung up the phone and put it on
my cell phone stand next to my computer and went back to digitizing.After an hour or 2 I decided to take a break
and grabbed my android and went outside.The phone was dead.I pushed the
on/off button and nothing happened.I
connected it to the charger and nothing happened.We even changed the battery.Again, nothing happened.Neither of us could revive it.This morning we drove to the AT&T store
and a very nice gentleman named Josh tried to revive the phone, to no
avail.It was a new phone or nothing.I purchased (well, we got it on our plan) a
Moto X.Apparently, this is the new and
improved version of my Atrix 2.I have
played and played with this phone today.I have read instructions and at one point called Josh for a little help
which he was kind enough to assist.As
the kids today say, “This phone rocks.”I
can hook it up to my computer to charge the battery; or, plug it into the
wall.It has a voice command like my old
Atrix 2 had, but this one has better response and does stuff for me.So you think that sounds crazy?I don’t even have to touch the phone to make
a call, send a text, or even do searches on the internet.This is just day one with this phone.Imagine what day two will bring?Oh yeah, the advertisement for this phone
says it is the only phone assembled in the USA.Okay, it wasn’t made here, but at least the USA got a part
of the action.
We have to come up with a name for my phone.Doris, Boudreaux, and Clothilde are taken by
my embroidery machines.It must be a
Cajun name.I am thinking about
Marie.Are there any thoughts out there
on Cajun names for the Moto X?
The garden is bountiful this year and we are
enjoying the fruits of George’s labor.
I do a lot of monogram digitizing.People want their name in “this” font.There are a lot of monogram alphabets that I
have done one or two letters, no one bought them and they are just hanging out
there.I think I’m going to complete
these alphabets and offer them in my Etsy store.Yes, I know, it is another project for my
long list of projects for our Etsy store.
I did get to enjoy an evening with the girls last
night. It was delightful.The food, of course, was fabulous.That break from reality is always
HAVE A HAPPY FATHERS DAY
