I am doing it again!

I can't believe I am going to do all these BOMs and Quiltalongs again. I am still not done with 2012's BOMs. LOL I guess I should just leave the computer off during January so I am not tempted. LOL I had decided that I would just do 2 this year. Hmmm, so far I am up to five. Oh well, at least most of them are just once a month. Surely I can get my blocks done and move on to the other things I need to do. They all have links over on my sidebar if you are interested in any of them.

Let's see, I really should be working on a small tote bag for Miss Ava Beth. Her birthday is the 17th. She is a huge fan of the Jayhawks. I bought Jayhawk fabric to make this for her, so I really need to get it done since I also have to mail it.  I'm just not feeling bags at the moment. LOL 

I also decided that I wanted to do some counted cross stitch bookmarks this year for some friends. Hmm well, I bought a book on counted cross stitch bookmark designs. Does that count?  
I also just received the book and needles I ordered for learning to knit socks. I have put that on hold for a couple of weeks, till I can get caught up with some other stuff. 
 Do you see my sweet Buddy's little head above the yarn? (grin) 

I am almost done with the hand quilting on my Raggedy Annie and Friend's quilt. I am on the last block, then just have a 3 1/2 inch border to do a simple design on and the binding. Then this quilt will be done. 

If I have any intentions of getting the Carpenter's Star quilt done for mom's 75th birthday, I really need to get with it. Also would like to get started on a quilt for my niece who is getting married in October. I have considered using the quilt along quilt for that. If I pick the right colors, it could work. 

Also, I just started a new 3 week diet to see what food allergies I might have. Kevin bought JJ Virgin's book, The Virgin Diet, just before Christmas. I finally got around to reading it and decided to give this a shot. So for 3 weeks I will eat no soy, corn, peanuts, eggs, dairy, gluten, or sugar/sugar substitutes. After 3 weeks, I am supposed to add them back to my diet, one at a time and see how my body reacts. I won't lie. This has been a struggle. I have had trouble even eating 1000 calories daily on this diet. Mainly because I am eating so much fiber, it fills me.  Today is better, because I started eating every 2-3 hours. I am already up to almost 8oo calories. I still have supper, and maybe even an evening snack. Wish me luck. Three weeks is not that long. I only have 17 days left. Yea!

Well, I did not intend to write a book. I think I am caught up now.  Thanks for visiting. You all come back, please.
