Happy New Year to everyone out in blogland! So far… so good. 2011, I’m ready.
I started and finished a quickie project last week for a friends birthday, so I can’t show it off just yet. I was happy to take a break from the squid quilt, but now I’m back to it! Here is the progress so far:
I think I have 4 more rows to go, then I’m halfway done!! WooHoo 🙂 After this I’m planning on making 2 or 3 baby quilts. I need to practice free-motion-quilting, and I think baby quilts would be a fantastic way to practice!
Other than sewing, I’ve been tweaking my diet… again. I know that there are things I just shouldn’t eat… but, I don’t think I can go through the rest of my life eating so strictly. So I’m testing my digestive system to see just how much I can handle. Sadly, I think sugar is completely out, along with potatoes, gluten, and coffee. I’m hoping honey will do me good and that I can have some starches as long as I stay away from potatoes… but that might be asking too much. We’ll see. By doing these “tests”, my joints have started screaming at me, headaches are back, and I haven’t been able to sleep through the night… along with other little things. So I’m pretty motivated to get back to eating right, and the new year is a good kick in the butt for those types of things.
