Sunday update

Happy Holidays to all. Our weather is still in the 80's during the day and 70s at night. This is Texas all right. We are to have a cold spell tonight come in. It may ever go down to the 30s at night this week. I have a had great week. Tuesday evening I hosted our Tuesday night stitch and wine. There were 6 of us. It was fun, stitching, talking and having a glass of wine or two. Then Saturday morning, one of the other regular stitchers hosted the monthly Saturday morning stitch-in. It is also a lot of fun with all of us, stitching and enjoying chatting with each other. One lady brought her baked Christmas cookies, that we all enjoyed. Then yesterday, also had a March of the Nutcracker Luncheon. We had 47 together for the lunch. My nutcracker ornament was loved by the lady that won it. I did get a picture. I also made some progress on my WIPs this week. Here are the pictures;

I added the cities of Farmington and Chama. Farmington is the friend's hometown and Chama is the Elk hunting area of New Mexco. He goes Elk hunting each year so I added a Elk to the Map also

The ABC Samplings book will be amazing when it's finished. How many pages will it have?

You did a great job personalizing the New Mexico map. It will be a wonderful gift!
