Weekly Update on WIP progress

Happy March to all of you.
First let me send my prayers out to all of the storm victims. What a disaster!
Again this past week and until April 17th, I will be very busy at work. Therefore, I am very tired in the evenings and only get an hour or 2 of stitching in. Of course I can't go without stitching. I have changed my rotation a little, adding in a couple of new designs, I am doing for my Grandson and Granddaughter for Christmas gifts. Also, a friend that is now divorced and his x took his son's stocking with her, talked my into doing a christmas stocking for him. He is paying me and of course I couldn't say now. Money for more stash! I almost finished an ornament for an exchange too.
Also, stitching on the piece for a lady that has had a design started and not finished(getting paid for it too). So here is what I stitched on this past week.
The Alphabet Samplings Book-by With My Needle
 The ABCs of Aging Artfully-Lizzie*Kate
 A Thanksgiving Wreath ornament-Holidays All Year
 The Halloween House-by Ursula Michael. This is a SAL with 10 other ladies.
 "Lilly" by Nora Corbet. I am stitching it on a Laguna 28 ct Sparklies fabric. (I won the fabric)
This will be a Christmas Gift for my Granddaughter, Anna.
 A Snowman and friends Christmas stocking being stitched for a friends son. A lot of the blue hightlights are only half stitches.
 Red Birds-JCS Nov/Dec issue. The trio of magnolias are begining to take shape.

Happy St. Patrick' day to all.
