Meeting Minutes
Our meeting in December was the largest attended virtual meeting so far.  There were 14 members appearing:  Andrea, Ann C., Julie W., Maggie, Cindy, Katie, Martha, Sue, Jude, Barbara, Liz, Joan, Leslie, and Mary.  And three states represented!:  Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois.  So nice we can see each other and not have to travel so far!  
For show and tell we shared our gift exchanges the pictures of which are in the previous blog post.  Leslie told us about the "Susie Snowflake" doll she made for Liz.  It was based on a song with the same name which Leslie remembered from when she was in second grade.  Liz asked Alexis to play the song for us, which she promptly did!  The wonders of modern technology!  We found out that Barbara talks to her Christmas tree.  (Wonder what she says???)  It was fun being able to chit chat with each other and catch up on what was going on in our members lives.

Not much business covered this meeting as it was our annual Christmas Party.  Somehow we started talking about buttons and ended up thinking we might do a button doll as our June challenge and the Edgar Allen Poe doll as the November challenge.  We will work on details at our next meeting.
Remember there are no dues until we begin meeting in person again.
