Weekly Update

Good morning all. We are still having it hot and dry here in Texas. Hopefully, we will have an early fall with much coolerweather. Even with work, packing for my move this comming weekend, FFA progress shows and a Memorial service for a very dear friend. After a two year battle of cancer, Gwen is now at peace and not hurting. Here are pictures of my progress of a few stitches this past week.

I am now on Page 4 of the Alphabet Sampler Book by With My Needle. Have completed the letter M, only need the vines on it. My first piece of linen, 18 ct and I am enjoying it.
 Finished letter b on Lizzie Kate's ABCs of Aging Artfully. I am stitching on Mondays along with other Lizzie Kate stitchers.
 Finished stitching the border on the third panel on the Library by Littlehouse Needleworks. This is a favorite of mine.
 Stitching on the All is Calm ornament. This is the last one to be stitched in the 2010 Littlehouse series of ornaments. Loved all of them and have given a number of the ornaments as gifts.
 My pheasant's tail is stitched and I am on the body of Christmas animals by Heaven and Earth.
 This is another of my favories, February Violets-Flowers of the Month by EMS. The colors are so pretty.
 A little more stitched on The Old West by Littlehouse Needleworks. I see myself stitching this again.
I am also stitching my ornament for my next Aug-Oct exchange.
Happy stitching this week and may your life be everything you wish it to be.

Happy 4th of July to all my USA stitching friends and Happy Summer/winter to all my International stitching friends. Our wseather here in Texas is Hot and Dry. A lot of the firework shows have been cancelled and a ban on buying fireworks as been put in place. Houston is still having their show, so will watch it on TV.

I am downsizing from a two bedroom/2bath apartment to a one bedroom apartment with a sunroom. The sunroom will be my stitching/craft/compter and library room. I will put some pictures up after getting settled. My granddaughter has been helping me pack and we are getting a lot done. My grandson and his friends are moving me the last weekend in July.
I pack each evening and then stitch to relex. Here are pictures of my week of stitching.
