Mardi Gras

Yes, it is the Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday celebration today,
but did you know that it was also National Pancake Day?
I made pancakes from scratch this morning for my family. They were very yummy. I even warmed the syrup! We had a couple left over and I will warm them up for breakfast tomorrow morning!
I've been working hard in my studio. I've completed a customer quilt top and am near completion on a t-shirt quilt that I pieced and quilted.
Here is a picture of the quilt and a couple of detail shots:

The weather has been so very nice here the last few days. We have had 80 degree weather so I've been busy working out in my garden pruning and planting and pulling weeds.
Tomorrow is the start of Lent and while I am not Catholic,
I like the idea of participating in Lent.
In years past I have always forgone something...
or my glass of wine.
This year I've decided that I would ADD something,
More daily devotion time,
daily exercise and
daily decluttering time in my home.
Discipline.....could be harder that giving up chocolate!
Wish me luck!
