Hello from sunny SE Texas. Our weather was in the 30th at night this week, but warmed u to the 60s and 70s during the day. The weekend has been really nice in the 60s. I spent the day at a youth rodeo watching my granddaughter ride and compete on Saturday and enjoyed it as always.

Good morning to all. Hope all of you that is having snow and cold weather, that you are warm and safe. Here in SE Texas USA, our weather has been in the 70s all weekend. Very nice to get out and enjoy. Now today, a cold front dropping the weather down in the 30s tonight, only in Texas.
My busy time at work is now as I work for a CPA and do taxes and accounting. Therefore, I didn't get as much stitching done last week as I would have liked.  I was also lucky to win 2 charts from Blueladie Designs this week If you haven't checked her website out, do so, as she has great designs. Also, I am stitching a lot on my granddaughter's horse "Cochise". I want to get it finished as she has now sold it and got a new horse, Vandy, a sorrel horse. Also, she got a new trailer for him. She rode it for the first rodeo on Sunday and did really well.  Here are pictures for the week.
My Garden of Joy SAL 2009 Friendly Stitchers Group now has 47 squares completed. I added a Carrot patch this week.
 Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking Gold Collection Kit.
This one is stitching slow but sure.
 My Granddaughter's horse Cochise, is nearer the finish line. Then I will put it on a pillow to go with the other one I stitched of her first horse, sleepy. This was designed on PC Stitch.

Have a great week.
