Break

Hello Friends,
I am taking a couple of different types of breaks. Right now is the one from when I go from the day job to my other job. I am sitting in the parking lot :)



I got this back from the framers yesterday. Please forgive the poor picture. I will get it hung up over the weekend.
Last night was the monthly EGA meeting. My friend Louise and I went out for Japanese beforehand. I think that I am going to take a break from EGA for awhile too. I don't seem to be getting much out of the meetings and the membership has changed some so I don't see some of the people that I enjoyed. There is some other chapter issues that are bothering me too. So time for a break.



Here is the eggnog poundcake that I made for the meeting.
I am looking forward to doing some stitching. I have to do some housework. After u get out of work at 10 I am planning to go to Walmart to pick up some things so I don't have to fight the thanksgiving crowds.
I am enjoying seeing everyone's ornament finishes. They are fabulous!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

That is a beautiful finish. I used to belong to the EAC (the canadian guild) and I had to walk away as well due to how it made me feel.

Your framed piece looks fantastic, Chris! Beautiful choice in frames...

I've never joined our local EGA because they all do stuff I really am not interested in (hardanger, etc). If you aren't getting much out of the meetings, I'd say you're making the right decision to take a break...

Stitching with groups is for fun - so if you're not enjoying it, don't go. I totally understand!! Very nice finish, and yummy looking cake -- they'll sure miss YOU.
