Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give.

Today I thanked my Chicks for six years of their hard work and dedication to our organization. We had a pot luck brunch but before we could start I made them do their "chorus line" for a photo. Starting from left to right: Karen Ayres, Liz Hotaling, Barbara Kavanagh, Beth Mashmann, Maureen Cagino, Kathleen Corrigan, and Elaine Rivard. Karin Maag-Tanchak couldn't make it today but she's another important member of the group.
Everyone brought delicious food! We had ham and cheese biscuits, blueberry muffins, a strawberry and greens salad, banana bread, asparagus and ham rolls, various cheeses, and an egg breakfast strata with sausage, potatoes, vegies and cheese.
Everything was so good some of us went back for seconds.
After brunch we retired to the living room to talk about vacations and knitting and to eat a little dessert.
The brownies and lemon bars hit the spot.
DH hung around long enough to take a group picture and then he snuck off to watch football.
I wore my "February Lady" sweater for the first time since finishing it and it was a big hit. It's only the second time I've made myself a sweater that I actually liked and will wear forever.
When I went looking for buttons I couldn't decide which ones I liked best so I bought all three!
I have a nice red baby alpaca yarn sitting in my stash which I think will have to be used for this sweater also, with a few minor variations.

Thanks to all my Chicks for helping to make my dreams of running my own business come true. If it weren't for all of you wonderful ladies there wouldn't be a Chicks with Sticks. Thank you and God bless you all! Here's to at least another six years!
