  1. I must apologize Remy, it seems that the trouble is in Firefox, I finally popped up internet explorer and sure enough it everything downloaded just fine. I don’t know what the trouble is, I am just glad that I finally thought to try it. I love your site. thank you for all the beautiful designs. If you are taking suggestions I have got two… one it the “use it up, make do, wear it out or do without” (I am not sure if I am writing them down exactly as they go) the other is the one about in “hard times, etc. an the last one is is all times praise God.” Have a wonderful day. May God bless you and yours.

    • Hi L A,

      Glad you are able to download my patterns successfully via Explorer! I love your suggestions for a Quote Sampler … Thank you! I’m still having some script problems with Adobe Flash, but I’m not sure if that’s what was causing some of the problems.

      I asked a very tech savvy friend to check out what might be the trouble and he couldn’t find anything specific. He thinks it’s probably one of those weird little conflicts that pop up from time to time when there are upgrades in programs, and that it will eventually get sorted out when enough people complain to Firefox, Explorer, Adobe,, etc.

      It seems (fingers crossed) to be working now, and I hope it continues!


  2. Hi Remy:

    No joy, I still can’t get anything to download no matter what I try.

    Good luck
    L A Bell

  3. for some reason I can’t seem to get anything to down load for me, do you know of any troubles? Or any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?

    • Hi L A,
      Yes, we’ve had some problems with the Box widget. I think it’s finally working now!
      Let me know if you still have problems.

  4. Great design Remy!!!
