Happy 2010!!

I trust all of you had a full and blessed Christmas and New Year!!

Thank you for understanding the need for a blog hiatus. Now it's time to catch up not only on our doings; I need to visit your blogs again as well.  It will be fun to become acquainted all over again!

In the next few days I'll post some pictures of projects, but first things first....


  • Two UFOs must be completed before starting a new project.
  • At least one Christmas present will be completed monthly. It will be nice to know that when December comes, several gifts will be ready to go.
  • Except for backgrounds, fabric purchases must be for a specific project.
  • No new patterns or books.
  • Within three months of moving sign up for at least one class at the LQS.
  • Within six months of moving, join the local guild.
  • Hairballs will be barfed only on easy-to-clean surfaces. Momcat is never too happy about them being on the carpeting.  And when they're on bedding she becomes quite unpleasant.
  • Give the other kitties a chance to cuddle on Momcat's lap. 
  • Swat and hiss at Maggie only once per day, no matter how much she deserves more.
  • Give thanks daily for the blessed life we all live here together.
Have you been creating for 15 minutes a day in my absence?  I supervised Momcat in the making of five scarves, 30 knitted dishcloths and one quilt.  My siblings and I really like Momcat's knitting. Cuddling up next to her and watching her fingers loop the yarn is mesmerizing. I'm happy to report that we are each very polite about not grabbing at anything. The same cannot be said when she cross-stitches.

Looking forward to catching up with all of you soon!

Welcome back Linda and Pi. Great list, and I hope it all goes well, especially the hairballs! Mittens is a fan of the cross stitch too -- what with that needle and thread popping up and down like a great surprise, or a mouse. So fun to try and grab!

Glad to see you back in Blogland! Sounds like you've been busy. I love all your resolutions so much that I may have to join in on a couple....but not the!

Cute post. I love your New Year's resolutions. With the exception, that I think you should join a quilt guild as soon as you move. It can be a great way to meet new people and make friends in your new home!

Great New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I'll be making any as I don't trust myself to keep them. A brill idea to make 1 gift a month. And you certainly got a lot of knitting done!!
