You Are The Best!

The pity party's over. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement and support. You have no idea how much they cheered me up!

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!

The Peace Out pack is groovy man.
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.
Red and Yellow Crayons
Flying Geese Modern
Teal Chevron
Hope you are having a great Tuesday!


  1. Good news..but try not to over-do. Congrats to Janarama! Whooohooo

  2. Glad to hear you are back in action...at least watching action LOL!

  3. So happy to hear you are on the mend! Glad ou were able to keep yourself distracted while you we trying to rest too! I hope it won't be too long before you are back to Ringette and quilting.

  4. Welcome back - you are doing soooo much better than me with EQ! Will try and catch up - preferably without a broken wrist!!

  5. Glad you're on the mend. I love the teal chevron eq - that would be gorgeous IRL :)

  6. Glad you are feeling better but I think your idea of down time is different than mine.lol You seem to have got alot done.
    Isn't the craftsy classes cool! I took the Jane Dunnwold class too! I like that you can go back and check. Ask questions and have access for the future.
    The teal quilt would look quite spectacular done.

  7. Yippee!!!! Thank you for picking my post. I'll give you my address as soon as I receive the email from you.

    Glad you're on the mend.

  8. There is something very Frank Lloyd Wright about that Teal Chevron… It's probably the band across the top. I'm really liking it.

    Sounds like you're as good at being sidelined as I am. Lol! Try not to push yourself or either hand too far, k? :-) Rest up and keep dreaming!
