Weekly Update

Good morning all,
My week was slow up until Saturday. Then my chapter, Alpha Theta Masters of Beta Sigma Phi, had our beginning day luncheon to start our new year off. It was held at the Junior League of Houston and was great. I have a final(hopefully) doctor's appointment on Monday Morning and hopefully will start driving and wearing my sandals again. I did get a few stitchers in several of my WIPS and did get my Map of Texas completed. Now to back it with the Texas fabric and add the rope for a wall hanging. My Grandson, Christopher, will be 18 on Sept. 3 and he had picked the Map of Texas out and asked if I could stitch it for him. I plan on finishing it this afternoon, so next week will have a picture of it completed. Here are my pictures of the Map of Texas and the WIP progress for the week.
