New Year, New Beginnings, New Quilts!

Many of us are deciding on our New Year Resolutions. While I really didn't give it much thought besides getting back to exercising regularly, eating better, spending good quality time with family and friends; Julie has set some goals that I think are promising in my own quilting studio. As I read her posting today I had an "ah-ha" moment....it sounded like something I want and could do. So if you think you spend way too much time in front of the computer, drooling through quilt magazines and more time thinking about doing them rather than doing them you may want to consider her goals to be your own as well. Though I must admit I don't have that many UFO's (likely from drooling over photos rather than working on them!!)

Yesterday I had all intentions of making a small project for a friend until I was interrupted by son #2 that Meowzer made it home. Meowzer went missing Saturday evening. We live in a heavily wooded area so he makes the rounds to numerous homes and loves to hunt. This isn't the first time he was a no show but this time it was for three days of not coming home for food or his naps. The cat was soaking wet with mud; a bewildered look in his eyes and he wanted in. We promptly bathed him as he purred the whole time (yes, he loves baths). He then slept through the rest of the day and night. He obviously didn't eat for a few days as well. I don't know what happened to him but he is glad to be home. I hate having a cat that loves the outdoors but this is how he came to live with us.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and promising resolutions or goals that are manageable!!

We can start our own support group...Quilt blog addicts anonymous. I am determined to limit my "research" time and just get on with the fun of making quilts. I'm not too worried about the UFOs. Just so I have some finished quilts when the year is over I'll be happy!

So glad you got your cat back. Sounds like he has a story to tell but you will never know it. Look forward to seeing your project done. Happy New Year.

Welcome Home, Meowser!! I know how you worry about him,and he might be an OUTSIDE kitty, but he lives INSIDE your heart!

Happy New Year!

Our kitty went outside the morning after Christmas and we didn't see him again until Sunday night when he finally showed up. Wasn't very hungry, wasn't hurt or scared, no big deal to him. I was sure he was a goner & was seriously missing him, he's the one who sits on my lap or sleeps on my feet when I read or work on the computer. Like yours, he likes to go outside to make the rounds and hunt and he wouldn't be happy if we made him stay inside so we have to let him out, even if it means he might not come home someday.

What a great blog, Mary! Love your idea of getting more done in the new year. Setting goals is a great way to accomplish more. Looks like you're off to a great start in 2009! Its so good to have you back "blogging" again. You have been missed!
