Weekly Update

Fall is in the air, well anyway a little bit. We are having a first cool spell, temp down to the 80s. I only have a few WIPs to show you as I am working on a few exchanges and a gift that I can't show yet. Here are the WIPs that I did make a little progress on:
1.     Joy and Peace Ornament-#9 2011 Ornament series - LittleHouse Needleworks

April “Sweet Pea” Flower Of The Month series – Ellen Maurer Stroh

1.     “Christmas Angels“ #2 Heavenly Host” Collection(4)-Joan Elliott 

 “G” -Stitcher’s  Alphabet – BrooksBook
And of course I watched Anna, my granddaughter start the fall season off in rodeos.
She rode last weekend on Saturday with the Youth Rodeo Assoc and Sunday, The High School Rodeo. Then yesterday, the second Youth Rodeo was in Bellville, TX. She has placed in the top 15 out of over 35-40 youth in Barrels and poles both weekend. I am one proud Grandmother.
Here a couple of pictures.





Have a great week and find a lot of time for stitching.

Weekly Update

I had a very busy weekend watching my granddaughter start her new year of riding with the Youth Rodeo Association and the Texas High School Rodeo Association. Both rodeos were held in Edna, TX at a beautiful arena. There were over 700 runs with appro 250 youth riding Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Then Sunday again over 500 runs and again approx. 250 youth riding. The Youth Rodeo, Anna was competing with 36 youth in poles and 40 in barrels. Then Sunday, in the high school rodeo, competing with 46 other youth in poles and 54 in barrels. She did good as it was her first rodeo with the high school rodeos. There is no breakdown of ages in the high school, with girls from 9th grade thru 12 grade competing together. Anna did place in the middle of both events.
Here is a couple of pictures as she is starting her run on poles.


I did get my Redbirds back from the framer. Here it is and I think the frame is so great and really sets the piece off. I will get a better picture later, but wanted to show it to you.

Weekly Update

First, I would like to send my prayers to an online stitching friend's family and friends. Deborah Faris Bryant from Debbie's Cross Stitch blog passed away this week. Her blog was so much fun to read and watch her progress. She always had something great to say to my blog and we had fun watching each other's progress as well as many others. I never had the chance to met her in person, but felt like we were friends though our blogs and facebook. Rest in peace, Debbie.

I was able to make progress on several of my WIPs this past week. Life left me along after work each evening and I was able to stitch and stitch. I even finished another of my Redbird Designs.

Weekly Update

Hello from hot Texas. It is so hot here that it is good that we can stay inside and stitch.
I did spend last Sunday afternoon at Rusty Spurs Rodeo watching my granddaughter ride and compete. She is so much fun to watch even in the hot weather. It is hard to believe she is starting High School (9th grade) Monday. She will also start competing in the High School Rodeo competition. Looking forward to watching here.


After stitching on my Redbirds all last week and finishing it I am back at my rotation of projects. Redbirds is now at the framer and I am looking forward to getting back framed.
Here is my progress on WIPs I stitched on last week.
