Weekly Update on WIP stitching progress

I am getting ready for a superbowl party at my daughter's this evening. Since our Houston Texans didn't make it, I am for the SF team.
I managed to get a little progress on several WIPs and also stitching on my next exchange ornament.
Had a fun day on Saturday. My daughter gave my Granddaughter, Anna, a Surprise 13th birthday party at a pizza place. 12 friends of Anna managed to keep it a secret, wow. Her Brother, Christopher, helped get her to the party without letting her know why they were going out to eat. She was told that they were going to eat with Grandmother. She was surprised. Here are a few pictures including the stitched one I did for her.

Now for the WIP progress on my stitching this past week.
