So, my computer has been down for months. I think it may be the video card, but I'm out of the loop on computers these days. Anyway, my dilemma is this. I can't download patterns to print because I have no way to save and extract zip files. I can do wireless printing from my phone or iPad, but does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can actually get to the patterns to print? I may just have to dig in and try to fix this dumb computer. But man, I want to be carving RIGHT NOW! Or maybe my husband can print some at work. Or I can go to the library.... pain in the ass though, I'll tell you that much!

So my joy is short lived! 😢 I cannot get patterns to print correctly. First it cut off the sides. Then it filled the page so much it cut off the sides. LOL. I guess I will try downloading the app for my printer again, but last time I tried to use that I could not get it to work. *Grumble grumble grumble*
