Guild Holiday Pot Luck

My quilt guild had it's holiday dinner tonight.  Lots of good food, and lots of very talented ladies in one room.  There was a 12 1/2 inch Christmas block exchange, and a block of the month, neither of which I did this year.  I have too many UFO's (aslo know as Unfinished Objects) in my possession to join in on these exchanges.

These were the block of the month for the month of September 2011.  I won these blocks driving down I-95 home from VA. 

They are still neatly hanging in my closet in a 1 gallon baggie waiting to be a quilt.

This is one of many that are "begging" for me to sew together.  In the mean time a very good, long time friend asked me if I could make her two personalized Christmas stockings, which has turned into five Christmas stockings!  

I have 6 stockings cut out.  They need names embroided on five of the tops.  Tomorrow is Thursday, and I "must" get the names embroided.  

To top it all off, I missed a step in Orca Bay (the pieced borders), and finally started step #1 of Easy Street.  How the heck could I make Christmas blocks, and Block of the Month blocks when I have shown you just a tiny piece of what's on my plate. 
Christmas presents still need to be bought, and wrapped, Christmas Tree still needs to be bought, and decorated, decorating still needs to be finished, and all the "ballroom" is still without "proper paint".  I found a place within myself a long time ago, which keeps me in a frame of mind where I "embrace" the state I am in right now. I am who I am, and the love of my family and friends will get me through.  It will get done, Christmas will be fine, and wonderful for my beautiful family. In 34 years no one has ever complained...

So in case I don't get a chance to blog later, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Piecing everyone.
