On the fence...

To buy EQ7 or not to buy EQ7 that is the question.

For those of you who have EQ7 (or 5-6) what is one thing that you can think of that would help sway me to purchase it. What is that one function you have found you can't live without?

For those of you who do not have EQ7, what has stopped you from purchasing it?

I design quilts by sketching them out on graph paper but have found the process a little time consuming if I want/need to change anything about the design. Which happens a lot! My designs are constantly changing or evolving. I'm an accountant by trade so the math is not a big deal to me; however, it would be nice to have it done for me for a change. ;)

Check out the fabulous Doll Quilt that was sent to me this week...

Lexis from Washington DC sent this blue beauty to me along with some thread, a yoyo maker, a fat quarter and an Odyssea charm pack!

Keeping it Real.

Just keeping it real.... Notice the stacks of projects I have to move if I want to press. This is how it looks right now in my master bedroom. Yes that's correct, I sew in my bedroom even though I have a sewing room next door. Right now I can not even walk into that room. (hanging head in shame) My dear husband has given me until May 10th to get it together and back into the sewing room. I'm not sure I have the drive to get it done.

I have been really busy with work and in my spare time, I'm trying desperately to finish this quilt. It is for a friend who recently got married. I won't see her again until June so by then it has to be done. I wasn't so sure about it but it is growing on me. I love the scrappiness of it and how the vintage fabrics actually play nice with the modern fabrics. I'm thinking another one will be on the list of charity quilts to make using any and all scrap fabrics. I can't wait to free motion big flowers in the white blocks. Now I just wish there was enough time in the day to get it all done....
