abcquilting@yahoo.com:
What is the EQ7 and what is it used for?

 

Bettie

EQ7 is a computer program that you can use to design quilts.  You can also draw out your blocks and it gives you cutting directions or paper piecing patterns or templates ....  whichever you want.  It is lots of fun to play with.   I haven't upgraded to EQ7 from EQ6 yet but it does have more options in the newer program.

Yayyy Marlene, so happy you found your blocks.  What a relief!   

Sitting here watching Ready TV this morning -- Quilting Arts was doing a sement on fabric painting and dyeing.  Now for Fons & Porter and then I will get up and be productive.

As much as I hate wearing this concrete tube (thats what it feels like) it does seem to be helping a lot.  Will head out to the garage and get some quilting done today. 

Have a great day everyone!

Life is good, Mon thru Friday. Maddie is back to my best buddy and being happy and contented. Electrician and plumber are done, contractor is staining stairs and guys are doing touch up. It is all coming together. A/c heat unit is working after a crisis with some wires that came disconnected this morning.

So until weekend things are looking good. DS will have to work Sat so it will be much shorter time of dealing with DIL this week. I try real hard to just stay out of the way but when they are in my house it is not always easy. DS will move in to house this weekend and I expect DIL will be asked to help him, floors need to be cleaned and polished nice. this she will do. And she can set up Maddie's room. That will keep her down at his place and busy. It is sorta like she is the one needing entertained during the visits instead of Maddie.

Happy quilting for all.

Marlene, I can't think of a safer place to put your VB blocks than behind your ancient steamer  chest.  You just have to remember you put them there.   : )

good afternoon all - thought to get on here this morning but didn't happen... is a dreary rainy day in Oklahoma - forecast for TS this evening - no fun!  I woke to pain and more pain and Jay woke to a swollen face - his tooth is really bad so finally got him to go to a dentist - antibiotics and a date to have the tooth pulled and to start the work for his dentures in March... plus the cost - oh my!!!  no more buying fabric or patterns for me for at least 6 months...teehee... will keep me in check...My pain medication isn't working as well as it does on normal days so think I am going into a flare - yucky weather is the cause... Sunshine come back!!!

filled the Scentscy's with new scents so the house goes from cinnamon buns to hazelnut to vanilla beans - love the scents and found out my DIL is going to become a sales person so I know who will be getting all my orders from now on.

Order came last night for the cocoa from land o lakes - I had a butterscotch and Mom had hazelnut - yummy - tonight I'll try some cinnamon - love there cocoa - is so rich and made with water instead of milk which amazes me - I had searched and searched and finally someone made one that is as good as made from scratch...

I am resting up today - have meat on for stew tonight in crock pot and the rest of the day will be in my chair so that I have energy for pool tonight - Mom is going with us and she is excited... lol... told her was in a grungy bar and she is excited about seeing one of those...teehee... tomorrow her hair appointment and thurs the lawyer - so the week is flying by...

wishing warm quilty thoughts and hugz for all!

    I finally got our taxes taken care of, after a week of putting it off. I was on hold for more then an hour when I called the IRS for clearification on a few things. They pipe the same 'muzac' through, over and over, with no change, the entire time your on hold. I'm certain it's engineered to put you in a stuper. The could play that sh*t in daycares and dementia wards across the coutry and put all of the little kiddies and crazies into a drug-free drooling coma. Course their care takers would be in one too, but who cares...  no one would be causing mischief!
    Went to mail off the forms once had we had them all in order and post mistress met me in a near panic because she'd gotten an e-mail notifying her I hadn't concented to a UA for the PO job. I mailed the bleepin concent form more then a week ago.  I checked my e-mail box when we got home and had 3 nasty grams from the fed saying I had 24 hours to get it taken care of. They directed me to "go to this websight and fill out these forms". I did. The web sight said I had to go to ND to pee in a cup. It wouldn't let me say that was not an option, nor would it let me proceed until I seleced either Minot or Fargo.... It timed out while I fought with it and wouldn't let me back in. So I called the PO and told her the issue. She e-mailed the reginal director, who said "Oh yeah. we have that problem with MT applicants all the time. Call this 1-800 # and get scheduled at the local clinic." (If they knew it was an issue, why'd i have to go through all that in the first place??) SO I called...and sat on hold to the same brain numbing muzac for the required 147.2 minutes before I  finally talked to a guy who said he'd mail me a UA kit and I should take it to...the biggest Drug dealer/pusher in the state for processing. (Ok. It's a clinic...but they have a nasty reputation!)  I suggested I could speed things up by getting the kit from the local SO ..but no, that wouldn't work. It might break the chain of custody.  Yeah...sending it through the PO is gonna guarentee it gets to and from un-tampered with. We can't trust the cops not to mess with it.
    I think I'll go drool in the corner somewhere until the effects of that accursed muzac wears off...

You are sooo lucky to have found your blocks.Could you look behind the trunk and see if mine are there too? I am sure the elves said they left mine at your house so I didn't need to worry.lol   Isn't that frusterating when you spend so much time looking for something and the one place you didn't look ;there they are.Tick tock goes the clock and still no blocks sewn.I better find someone to stand over me with a whip and make me put my nose to the sewing machine.Already the quilt police have been here and I am not allowed to make anymore quilt tops until I do some binding.Is it normal to have more than 15 quilts that need binding? I HATE binding .Why can't people just love them without binding lol.

Can't wait to see you at VB

I found a new snack sensation.  It is a peanut butter made by the Peanut Butter Co out of NY.  It is a peanut butter blended with white chocolate.  Creamy smooth and really yummy.
