A special thank you today to Brenda who stopped me jumping out of a window. I was trying to provide British Patchwork and Quilting Magazine with some illustrations for an article and knew that once, I had been able to get EQ5 patterns to save as BITMAP files so that I could convert them to a JPG File? But could I remember how to do it? No. (And if you are thinking: what on earth is she talking about, no I don't understand the difference. I just know that one is accepted by them and one is not!). So, after at least an hour of trying and as I was getting really frustrated about wasting an unexpected day at home, I emailed Brenda in Australia who sent the answer back within seconds. Isn't the Internet and blogging a brilliant thing?

Ok, so the verdicts in the comments seems to be that I don't go off to Irian Jaya. The point Purple Missus makes about not getting fabrics so easily out there is a very valid one and I am not saying that you are wrong in your view. I just, as a lawyer, trained in putting both sides of the argument, thought it appropriate to add in some argument for the other side: much as I love fabric, sometimes the lack of it can seem an advantage.
