Friday Night Sew-In

It's Friday Night Sew-In again! This is my second time to participate in this event and I have been looking forward it all week!
Handmade by HeidiAs I hopped through the blogs following my first  Friday Night Sew-In, I found many bloggers writing that they were disappointed with their accomplishments. Several times I was compelled to leave comments saying "every stitch counts" - and it does. 
Why is it that we set aside a lovely evening of sewing and at the end, feel disappointment, instead of thankfulness and pride?!? I'm going to work on that tonight!
I also learned from hopping around the blogs that I was sorely lacking in the refreshment department! Clearly I need to think about that to make this FNSI more of a success!
My plan is to enjoy sewing some civil war blocks, and maybe work on some borders for my December UFO. But I might also try making some Christmas gifts while I watch "The Grinch"...and remind myself not to let the Grinch steal my Christmas spirit! I will remember to feel thankful and know that every stitch counts!
