I went to see the ortho on Thursday and the news is very good. It's a small distal radius fracture -- no resetting or surgery needed. Just a new cast, which freed up my thumb and fingers so I can move them freely. No ringette -- boo! -- but I can quilt a little -- yay! I don't think the doctor meant quilting quite as much as I have been since Saturday though...LOL! Freeing up my fingers and thumb means I can type easier too, which means I can start blogging again too. Woo hoo!
First order of business is to announce the winner of the My Memories digital scrapbooking software!

Congrats, Janarama! I'll be sending you an email shortly. Thank you to My Memories for sponsoring this giveaway!
The other bit of news is that my 10 Years And Still Over The Rainbow and some of my Colour Your World pieces were featured at Quilt Inspiration. I'm so honoured that they featured me and am touched at the kind words!
While staying cozy on the couch, I've been taking advantage of my down time by watching a Craftsy class. Whoa! I'm totally hooked! If my Internet supplier and Craftsy would just give me unlimited Internet and classes, you might never see me again. I learned how to dye cloth with Jane Dunnewold. Now I'm taking a colour class with Joen Wolfrom. So cool! Alas, I used up almost all of our bandwidth for the month in two days so we needed to pause until today. Whoops!
So then I decided to play with Electric Quilt -- yes, I suck at resting, but I did take plenty of naps. I'll give EQ this much, it's very one hand friendly. Um, that didn't come out quite right. ;) I doubt I'll ever make these quilt designs, but it was fun to play with the program this way.
