Weekly Update

The holiday season was started. I love the Christmas season and what it stands for. My first occasion for the season was a Holiday Tea last Saturday afternoon. I was part of the committee that hosted it and it was attended by 46 wonderful friends. It was held in the home of one of our members. I am a member of Beta Sigma Phi, an international friendship sorority. Lots of friendship, food, and visiting.
Then Sunday, I went to Edna, TX to watch my granddaughter ride and compete in the monthly Texas High School rodeo. She is so much fun to watch.
I also won a chart of my choice in Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe 12 days of Christmas Give a ways and received it on Sat. I chose the Victorian Merry Christmas Sampler chart.
I did get some stitching done as well last week. I am still stitching on ornaments for gifts. I did finish another one as well. Here is the finished ornament and the WIPs I stitched on.
