A List and a Bear Block

Our Guild meeting is tonight. I have a lot of things to get ready! I made myself a list in order not to leave anything undone.

Finish the charity quilts and sew on labels - check
Finish postcard from last week's Bee Night - check
Gather up library books for return - I want to renew one of them. Still have to find them all.
Bring the 'Happy Tropical Basket' wall hanging for Show and Tell - I still have to sew on one button.
Make deviled eggs - check (We are having a bit of a potluck tonight. We usually have one at Christmas time, but we have a very hard-to-get speaker for our end of November meeting, so our potluck will be tonight - a harvest potluck.)
Gather up mug, plate, cutlery and napkin for the potluck - check
Gather up things to bring for a project in Africa - check
Bring the finished Block-of-the-Month block - check

I feel as if I still have a lot to do, but I guess I'm nearly done. I should have started early this morning, but because I love to procrastinate, I worked on this block instead. I got the idea from the block that gave me so much trouble on this week's Block Party. The pattern for the bear came from the library book that I want to renew. I still have to stitch around the bear, but my machine is not cooperating today and I am in no mood to argue with it. I might make a few more of these blocks - a deer, a moose - a squirrel etc. Maybe next week!

But now I am going to take a quick nap. If I don't I won't be able to make it through the entire evening tonight.
Today is day 26 of Blogtoberfest.

That is the best plan... We use paper & plastic, but if we all came prepared we would be saving "something."
