I have had EQ7 for close to 2 years now and I actually have a few projects plugged into it that I'm looking forward to trying out.
But at heart I'm a graph paper and pencil drafter. So I might go months without opening the computer program.
This past week I was compelled to revisit what I had been playing with once upon a time - and I'm glad I did!
Now, I did decide to abandon the pinks and yellows and work in more of a fall/winter palette at this stage. While visiting in Montana earlier this year I picked up a selection of great fabrics from Michele D'Amore for Benartex, Leaf Haven. And they've been sitting up on the shelf waiting for just the right project.
But even before I started working on that version, I started pulling fabrics for a slightly larger version of the same pattern, in cool purples and taupes - a mellow winter feel.
I still have a couple more fabrics to find in order to bring this puppy to fruition, but I am super-psyched to get started on it! And I have to admit, I love feeling super-psyched about new projects again. Love it.
