This time of year I do purchase something for myself for Christmas if it's something I really want or can use in the future.
I got my newsletter form EQ today and they have a sale on these two items and others, the ones I am getting are stand alone programs. In othe words you don't need EQ to use them. They are half price, a good deal.
I am getting this one, it sounds great. Seems like one could learn some new techniques and I am all for that.
Also this one, I love to paper piece and I love houses and these can be incooperated into a log cabin quilt which is still on my waiting list (the snake river by judy martin).
