Meeting Minutes
There were twelve attendees at our January meeting:  Andrea, Julie W., Katie, Mary, Martha, Virginia, Ann C., Sue, Elena, Jude, Denise, and Joan.

For Show and Tell, Mary showed us a wonderful phone bag Martha had made her so Mary can always have her phone with her.  How thoughtful, Martha and how pretty, a fashion statement!

Virginia is working on a Luna doll and says she will finish a Bridget doll  for the February meeting.
Ann C., has been busy making masks with coordinating colors.
Sue has a UFO she will finish to show for the February meeting.
Andrea has been working on her tatted doll and plans to have it done for the February meeting.
Jude showed her finished Tilda Santa.
Denise plans to finish her Triplet doll for the February meeting.  She also made a needle case.
Elena showed us a clay faced doll she had made. The Chinese lunar New year 2021 is the year of the Ox and appropriately Elena made a fabulous cow. She also showed us a third doll she had made.  How imaginative!  Great work, Elena!

Attendees discussed the upcoming challenges.  After careful consideration it was declared by our president to do a Button Doll for the May challenge. Many members emailed their agreement including members who were not able to attend the meeting.  A button doll would be any doll that featured a button or buttons as part of the construction or costuming and could be easily seen.  
We still plan to do our Edgar Allan Poe challenge sometime in the fall, hopefully when we can all be together in person!
