I'm happy to hear that :).

Well, you need a program that converts .eps files to .pdf files, e.g.,
epstopdf, or ghostscript. That you can bring into TeXworks by adding it
as a tool in Edit > Preferences > Typesetting. Then, you can select it
from the drop-down list in the toolbar and use Ctrl+T to run the
conversion. If that succeeds, the resulting pdf should be
displayed/updated in the previewer.
It should work just like "converting" a .tex file into a .pdf file, you
just need to run a different program than TeX ;).
