    Just ordered "Stand-Alone Designer Software." Thanks for the info!! With the shipping added, it comes to about $20 which is a pretty affordable Christmas gift for myself. Yippeee!! Hope the software is easy to use as it looks in the video.

    I must own a gazillion patterns between books, magazines, and plastic sleeve patterns. But, invariably, I end up doing my own thing, usually not following a pattern. I guess I just like to look at them. _ :hunf: _ I'm thinking this design software is going to get me out of some tight spots. _ :) _

    Mrs. Santa never forgets me, always something I really need/want that only she seems to know about.

    I love when EQ has a sale. The last sale I was able to pick up the block book, that has all the blocks in EQ6. I like to take the book to bed and go through the blocks etc and at half price, it's a deal.

    You will love the stand alone programs. I have the Sew precise one, two and three....and use them all the time. Lot of paper piecing and odd blocks in there and so easy to use....

    I still like the flower head pins (for the lenght) even thought they are plasic flowers, they seem to withstand the heat a bit better but can melt.
    And easier to see.

    I have more than gifted myself the past few months. A new (2nd) machine and loads & loads of fabric, including quite a statsh of batiks. This covers Mother's Day, Birthday, Christmas, etc. I deserve it. LOL

    You were so naughty to post this! LOL I just ordered four stand alones from them.

    I'm learning to do foundation piecing so I ordered The Town and Country, Precise Collection 1&2, 3 and 4. At these half prices I couldn't resists.

    Seriously, thank you for posting this, I have been looking for patterns for foundation piecing.

    Went to FL to the Elinore Burns Retreat and bought a Babylock serger; also found Macy's and bought a diamond pendant. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to me!
