Updated blog

The WIPs are Sweet Song of Christmas-one of The 12 days of a Texas Christmas-Redbird Designs, Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking, Yellow Rose- Dale Burdett, March Calendar Girl-Littlehouse Needleworks, and Seasons Greeting ornament-Little House Needleworks.


April 15th has come and gone for another year. As you know I work for a CPA doing taxes here in the USA. Therefore, my stitching has been very little the last couple of weeks. I did put a few stitches in a few WIPs. Also, working a little everyday on the Yellow Rose. It will be a gift this next Saturday. I am a member of Beta Sigma Phi, an international Friendship sorority and I was chosen Sister With Something Extra in 2014. This year I get to honor the new Sister With Something Extra for 2015. Our flower is The Yellow Rose, so I thought I would stitch her a pretty Yellow Rose. Next week I will show you the completed Rose. I have enjoyed stitching it.
My lovely daughter has a birthday on April 16. She has become a great lady and has made me a wonderful Mother and Grandmother.
It is a beautiful Sunday morning with the Sun shining. We had severe thunder storms Friday night with lighting and lots of rain, but it is now passed.
Have a great week with lots of stitching and whatever life throws your way.
