Sunday Update

Good morning to all my stitching and crafting friends. Hope you have had a great week. Every with being very busy at work, I have been able to relax in the evening with my stitching. Here are pictures of my WIP for the week. I finished my first 2012 Christmas Card.  I also finished an ornament for an exchange and will picture it when she had received it. Also, I was given my Granddaughter, Anna, band picture. She turned 12 on January 30 and is in the 6th grade. This is her first year of band and she is enjoying it. Of course I think she is sweet and pretty.

You certainly are keeping busy. I started doing a wedding sampler after I first got married. My husband made fun of it, said it was stupid....I never finished it. I haven't done much x-stitch since. Now I do mostly beading and crocheting.

Your granddaughter is beautiful. My husband is a professional drummer so i always notice stuff like that.
