Resisting Temptation

I's' been a minute since I last posted. TQP #14 is up and ready.

First things first, the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival start this week. If you are in the area, stop by and say hello. Several podcasters, Sandy, Tanesha, Pam, Frances, along with myself are having a meet up. Meet us at the waterfall around 1130.

If you listenen to my podcast, you know that I will be starting a fabric diet starting the 1st of March. Well, I was advised to start now and not wait. (Nonnie) Can't do that!!! The quilt festival is this weekend. How can I start a fabric diet and attend a quilt festival. It's not humanly possible to be that good. So, born was the title of the podcast and post, "Resisting Temptation".

*Jodi, the puppy, is growing fast. He has gone from 2.9 lbs to 6.6 lbs. I am glad that he is getting along with his brother. Here are pictures of both. I apologize that the pics are not great quality, but they would not be still.
