I finally decided to purchase .PES format to test whether I can get it to work on my machine. Thus far I've downloaded the files and put them into one folder on my laptop. Tomorrow I will transfer the files to my old desktop computer to test them. If it works well (and without too much frustration) I'll try to setup the laptop so that I can work from here rather than the desktop. That computer is extremely slow and outdated, but I've tried other laptops without success.
And now for Pin It Wednesday...some organization ideas for home and studio:
From my "fine art, masterpiece" board: a few fine art pins because I've added about 100 pins to this board in the last couple of days. It's easily my most-pinned board with 1000+ pins, most of which are of paintings from the great masters.
Aren't they stunningly beautiful? Imagine the art and talent needed to paint the crystal glasses in this last painting. How fine a brush is needed to paint the roses on the teapot and cup? I hope you enjoyed these. Visit my Pinterest board if you'd like to see more fine art works.
