Thanks for all the comments. It is comforting to know that I am not alone in my excitement over the annual JCS ornament issue. I went to my EGA meeting last night and was able to fondle a friends copy. Did she have to pry it out of my fingers?? Almost. My husband is usually off on Fridays and he will drive me to Greensboro for my job and pick me up afterwards so that we can run errands and have dinner. Today, wonderful guy that he is, he stopped by the local needlework store to pick up my copy. So I have looked through it once and I am pleased. There are quite a few that I would like to stitch. I will let you know my favorites after I have spent some more time with it :)
The meeting was good. We are probably going to switch our meeting to the 3rd Thursday of every month. In October we are having a harvest/Halloween party with some fun like pumpkin carving. Hopefully next year we will have a fall/Halloween ornament exchange too.
In December the chapter meeting is our Holiday party with dinner and an ornament exchange. The chapter has a lot of talented stitchers. When I take out my ornaments for Christmas I will post some pictures of the ones that I have received over the years. I always love getting them out and looking at them.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend with stitching time and time with friends and family.
