I posted on my blog the UFO list according to my new criteria and priority for finishing the project.

The list is raw and I plan to refine it in the future.


PLEASE, POST YOUR RESOLUTIONS HERE

I don't make resolutions for anything. I just go with the flow. There are things I would like to do but if I go in a different direction I'm OK with that.

Oh, Yes! Eat more cookies!

Christmas Cookie Rules

1.   If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh from the oven, it has no calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the Test Cookie and thus calorie free.

2.   If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie, it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.

3.   If a friend comes over while you're making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample, you must sample with your friend.  Because your friend's first cookie is calories free, Rule No. 1 means that yours is too.  It would be rude to let your friend sample alone and being the friend that you are, that makes your cookie calorie free.

4.   Any cookie calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move.  This is due to gravity and the density of the caloric mass.

5.   Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.

6.   Cookies colored red or green have very few calories.  Red ones have three and green ones have five - one calorie for each letter.  Make more red ones!

7.   Cookies eaten while watching "Miracle on 34th Street", "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story" have no calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

8.   As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking the cookie causes calorie leakage.

9.   Any cookies consumed from someone else's plate have no calories since the calories rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate.  We all know how calories like to cling!

10.                Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes never have calories.  It's the rule!

Margaret --- where do you live?  There are two quilting retreats being put together by QCA members.  One is in Washington state and one is in the Des MOines Iowa area.  There are forum threads about both out here.

Loved reading everyone's quilty resolutions, but think I'll do better following Kris's example for the coming year.  I never used to have UFOs, now I have several.  I still have hand-quilting to finish on the border of Jodie's Sampler, applique blocks from a BOM started last Feb., a kit for a Civil War quilt that was going to be my first project for 2011, a scrap quilt with rows pieced but not yet joined together and MQ #2 that still needs to be quilted.  I also need to make a quilt for a baby expected in June and I've offered to make quilts for three relatives (they didn't even ask for them, so that whole thing was my own idea) AND I joined the Farmer's Wife's Sampler group.  What was I thinking???  If I can stay sane and organized I really want to get them all done.  Thank goodness, I'm retired and don't require very much sleep.
