Weekly update

Here is my weekly update of my WIP progress for the week. Also working on a Christmas ornament exchange piece and now finishing a piece for a friend. I have been without my computer for a couple of days. My cd drive broke and I had a new one installed. I was lost without my computer.
Also, my Lizzie Kate partner has had time to receive her exchange from me, so I will picture what I stitched for her.

Sunday Update

Happy Holiday weekend to all my US stitchers friends and all of my other countries' stitching friends.
We have had a very wet weekend. The rain did stop on Saturday and it has been a great weekend since then. I have ducks that wander my apartment comples and Saturday morning I watched a mother and new ducks. I did take some pictures and that I would show them off.
Hope all of you had a great Valentines. I know I did. After a busy day a work, I spent a couple of hours at my LNS stitching and having a glass of wine, then I went to my daughter's for dinner. I had yellow roses and a bottle of Cupcake wine waiting for me. Of course I have to show them off.
Also, my progress on my WIPs are shown. I did finish my Lizzie*Kate exchange and put it in the mail on Saturday, will picture it next week after my partner gets it.
I was stitching in my sunroom Saturday morning and watching the ducks, it was neat.

Sunday's Update

Hello stitchers. Beginning to get really busy at work. I am a tax preparer for a CPA firm. Stitching s little each evening is my way of relaxing, even if it is only a couple of strands each. I did have a great weekend, attending a Valentine Ball on Saturday night, as well as staying at the hotel that it was held at.
Here is my progress for the week as well as a picture from the ball.
I have now stitched 6 pages of 16 pages of The Alphabet Samplings Book by With My Needle.
 I have started line 5 of the The ABCs of Aging Artfully by Lizzie*Kate
A little progress on the September Weatherpoem. Britian's Cross Stitch Magazine
