Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

There are three friends who ride with me every month to our quilt guild meetings. It's about a 40 minute drive so we laugh and talk and laugh some more. Last year we decided we'd do a 12 1/2" Christmas quilt block exchange as our gift to each other. This is my block for 1010. :) Cute, cute, cute...don't you think? I used a pattern from one of my Art To Heart books. It's hard to see here but I did a machine blanket stitch in black around each letter. Of course, now that they're done I'm second guessing myself. Do you think it needs anything else? Is it too plain? Christmasy enough? Sigh. We are our own worst critics don't you think?
Are any of you out there doing block exchanges for Christmas? I've got about 20 now that I've collected from silent auctions at my guild and from these friends. I think after this Christmas I may have enough to make a top - my most treasured quilt is one where the blocks were made by friends so I know a Christmas one will be doubly special.
