I chose Wednesday, December 7th. Husband out of town, all quiet at home. So I worked - ironing, cutting, sewing, ironing... BONUS! I had my favorite old movies playing in the background. I had a sandwich for lunch, don't remember what time that was (isn't it great when what you're doing has your complete attention?). Around 8:30 p.m. I got hungry again and wandered into the kitchen. I started planning my post to describe all the gifts I was making (yes, both of them) and then it dawned on me.

I walked back into the kitchen glanced at my calendar and noticed "MAKE, BAKE & CREATE @ SHERRI'S 6:30." I had just missed out on one of my favorite parties of the year. A gathering of friends to celebrate the season, catch up on each others' lives and have fun. We even raise money for charity by auctioning off items we've made, baked, created or bought. This group of friends is special, we've done it for years, it's probably our silliest night of the year and I missed it.
2012 will be my year to get more organized. Or maybe it's the year I'll put everything on the calendar in my phone and just have it chiming away to remind me when to get up, when to go to bed and what I should be doing in between those activities.
Thanks to Barbara at Cat Patches - for encouraging and inspiring me to make more time to quilt.
And to my friends at OLC Circle - I love you all. Sorry about missing the party, I hope to see you in May.
