I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

flat surface disease

I had to take a picture of my sewing room so Judy wouldn't feel alone in her covering of horizontal surfaces. We call it flat surface disease. This is what it looks like now, after I went out, cleared things off and cut for a couple of hours on my niece's quilt. Here is an EQ6 exported image of the quilt I am working on.
Stashbusting report... I probably would have gotten more done without having to clear surfaces to do anything. So far I have cut about 3 yards and started piecing the units for this quilt. I didn't buy any new fabric this week. So at least I am heading in the right direction. I also got some hand quilting done on the wall hanging I am making for Jan's shop. I should have finished it before Christmas, but I had so much to do it got put on hold.
Have I mentioned how much I love my EQ6?? I have had 5 for a number of years and 6 is so much better. My friend April got it for Christmas too and we have been having a great time emailing each other the projects we have been creating back and forth.

ahh-so that's what it's called! Flat surface disease! Is there a cure? LOL I love your quilt design--I remember seeing that in a book somewhere thinking it's one I'd like to do. Don't ya just love EQ6? Makes it so easy to change colors, etc.

I won't even take a photo of my cutting table right now, it's in need of some clearing.

I LOVE EQ and I agree EQ6 is much better than EQ5, well worth the upgrade.
