Hubby got me Quilt Pro! WhooHoo! Although I have never worked with
quilting software or even paint, I am so excited to give it a whirl! I use a mac so the other software EQ, I think it's called, is not compatible unless I install

projects at once, but I'm really wanting to finish one quilt before starting

Have been working all day today at the office. Boss getting ready for a hearing this week out of town (good).
I offered some red felt spool cushions as a PIF yesterday. I don't know if that is the correct name for them, but that's what I am calling them. It's the red felt discs you put on the spool spindle on the sewing machine to cushion the spool. I sent out two to six people that responded to my thread. I'm still waiting for one more address to sent out a seventh set.
