Well not just sewing. Costco was happy to see me as I spent my way back into their heart. Lots of fruits and veggies because once Fat Tuesday is over, I'm going to try a juice fast. I would love to commit to 30 days, but I'll be realistic and go for three, then 3 more, and we'll see from there. Loaded up on celery, cucumbers, carrots, apples, blackberries, blueberries, acai, and spinach, maybe I'll pick up some kale later in the week. I will add protein powder to one or two per day depending on how I feel. I do feel like I should juice fast in the summer when we have lots of homegrown produce, but I wanted to do it now after the 30 day diet I did after the first of the year.Lost 10 pounds in January, a two week break, then 30 days (maybe) of juicing. Then 2 week break and the New Adkins will begin. Just getting a good jump start as it seems a bit easier to lose in the winter. My goal is 85 pounds off this year. Wish me luck!

Fabric addict. *ugh* What is it about fabric anyway? I don't like feeling out of control but, well, I think I just might be when it comes to fabric. I keep saying "No more!" but the packages keep coming! Feeding the addiction doesn't make it go away, it just makes it stronger. I can justify almost any fabric purchase with my twisted logic. "It's on sale!" "It won't be available when I decide what I'm going to make with it!" "It's just a half a yard. What's the harm?" "I don't spend money on anything else" "I make these for other people, not me, so it's not a selfish thing" "Pretty! Need it! Have to HAVE IT NOW!" Goodness there is nothing good about this! Hopefully facing the beast and seeing it for what it is (my desire for instant gratification) will help me get over it a bit. Ha! Sure. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to correcting it. Um yeah. I guess I'll try again to keep my resolution--no more fabric--today. lol

I finished the nearly king sized BOM cottage quilt last week; I need to post the pictures from my camera. Also the Covenant Garden and Christmas Presence quits. I made 2 baby quilts this week as well. Working on 2 more baby quilts and hopefully get Paris quilt top finished this weekend. Good thing my son is my housekeeper! lol I feel blessed to have the twins living with us. I know its hard for them at 24 to be with mom and dad, but such is the economy of now.

Quilting plan for today is to piece the Paris quilt top. It is cut and ready, but first I need to run out to the local farm to get eggs for the week. I will post pictures of my quilt progress this afternoon. Hoping it gets completely done today!

I got one of those shoe things to hold my fabrics that are 3 yards or more. Gosh there is so much when I gather it in one spot!
Below is a close up of the top of the cabinet. I know it's cluttered but I know where everything is and it is very compact! I think the storage drawers are holding at least 600 yards of fabric. WooHoo! I'd better call my homeowners insurance and add a fabric rider to the policy!
