If you are looking for my 'Sew Retro' Paper Piecing Pattern Give Away you can find it here. If you visit Jeanette at Gone Aussie Quilting's blog, not only does she have a fabulous version of this pattern already quilted, but I think her Heather Ross Spoonflower prints are the best give away in the whole blog hop.
Too Busy for Scrapping
I have not had much time to work on the back of the Tall Boy Runner this past week. My closest friend is moving away this weekend and I have been busy helping her with childminding, packing and a spot of weeding.
I have a few ideas on the go - a log cabin (yes but not really enough long strips left over)
- a more traditional block using squares
- a sort of improvisational piece (my favourite kind of piecing)
I am happy to pursue all of these options until I can make up my mind which is most suitable.

Linking up with WiP Wednesday.
Duncan's Myositis has cleared up and he has been back at school since last Friday.
Last Thursday I went and saw a Hand and Upper Arm Specialist about my swollen index finger. He seems to think that the palm spike tip (about 1mm) is not the cause of the inflammation anymore. He seems to think that my finger has developed what is called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
I won't bore you with the details but it is not very nice. I really do hope that it is not too late for my finger. Indeed I think some of the swelling has eased, some of the functionality has returned but I am a long way from straightening it.
Thankfully the pain is not excruciating and so I declined to go back to Brisbane again this week to see a Pain and Rehabilitation Specialist for treatment. I saw my GP today and obtained a referral to a Hand Clinic that visits locally on Wednesdays. So tomorrow I am off to see a Hand Physiotherapist. I have developed some dermatitis on it but I suspect that my poor finger is under a loss of stress from the CRPS.
Luckily it is not too painful to sew by hand or on the machine.
