Sunday July 17 Update

Hello all friends, hope your week was filled with may stitches completed and life has been good to you.

I stitched a little each day and made progress on a few WIPs this past week. My grandchildren, Christopher(16) and Anna(11) are again raising and showing animals with the FFA this year. They had their few progress show on Sat. Area school's FFA have progress shows before the Fort Bend County Fair the end of Sept. Christopher showed his Charolais Steer-TEX and his pig, Georgia. He placed 2nd with the steer. Anna showed her pig, Missie and her goat. She got a sixth with the goat. Here are a few pictures of them.  Also pictures of this week's stitching.
I am on page 3 of 16 of this Alphabet Sampler Book by With My Needle. It is stitching up so neat.
 I am making progess on ABC's of Aging Artfully by Lizzie Kate.
 I have completed the letter "B" of The Stitcher's Alphabet by Brooks Books. I am stitching them on an afghan.
 Another pumpkin stitched on The Pumpkin Patch Kitchen Towel
 This Thanksgiving cornacupia will be another of The Holiday ornaments.
 My Candle Christmas card is coming along.
 This is The Old West by LittleHouse Needleworks. It will be a birthday present for my nephew in Oct.

Until next week, Happy stitching and have a great week.

You amaze me every time you show progress photos. You must have smoking needles to get as much done as you do!! Grats on all the progress Joyce, and grats to the kids for placing in the contest!
