Weekly Update

First, I go to the doctor's on Monday Morning. Off with the cast and walking(I hope). What a past two months. Who would have thought a toe could give you so much trouble, but it is not going to stop me. With this surgery, it is going to help me later in life, so I will be around to stitch more of what is in my stash.
Even with a cast on my leg and using a walker, I was able to go and watch my grandkids in their latest Foster FFA progress showing their pigs. What a great day, Saturday. Christopher(17 and Anna(12) showed their pigs(Peaches and Shiner) in the same weight class. What fun watching brother and sister compete with each other along with several other pigs. End results, Anna won 1st with Peaches and Christopher won 2nd with Shiner. Then in Junior Showmanship, Anna won Grand Champion and in Senior Showmanship, Christopher won Grand Campion. All in all, what a great day. Now they will get ready for our Fort Bend County Fair the end of September. Here are a few pictures from the day.

I received the neatest package this week. I took part in a PIF this year and received my PIFpackage
from Magge Smith at She stitched me a little pillow that is just so neat and pretty. Here is a picture of all I received.
I also take part in a quarterly ornament exchange with Christmas Ornament Crafters. I received two really neat ornaments made from bottle caps.
