Not a whole lot...

That's exactly what's going on over here - not a whole lot...

The quilts are delivered to the Farmpark Show, just waiting on the judging (which is going on now) and the Opening Reception where we get to meet and chat with all sorts of wonderful people who have entered quilts. Many times this is the only event during the year we get to see so many people all at once, some that we don't get to see too much during the year so it's always a nice treat!

Other than that I've been quilting again and I will be back in a few days to show you the quilt I've been working on...

Besides that it's mainly work, quilt, work, eat, quilt, sleep, work, eat, quilt, quilt (not necessarily in that order)

Oh, but I do have good news to share... So some of you know I've been dieting for awhile. Once we got back from vacation last fall I knew it was time to make a change. I started the 17 Day Diet and have stuck with it for the most part, even through the holidays (except that week between Christmas and New Year's, but if you diet then you are just crazy if you ask me - it's like asking for punishment), alas, I've been eating better for a few months now and not banging myself in the head when I'm bad. I had a small piece of birthday cake, I went to family meals and ate whatever they were eating, they're not dieting so I'm not going to punish them, but even with the "non-diet" moments  - I'm down 20 pounds so far!

I can't believe it. I feel better, I have more energy, I'm loving the foods I'm eating and not really missing the ones I'm not (okay there are cravings, but who doesn't crave something, even when you eat what you want...) and I'm so happy.

Ben keeps telling me that if this keeps up we might need to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe... Just maybe! Wish me luck. Speaking of which, I will be showing a tutorial of one of my new favorite foods I've discovered since I started eating better. I think you just might like it too!

So, that's what is going on here. What have you been up to lately?
