Weekly Update

Good morning, it is now Tuesday am and I am a little behind posting my Weekly Update. With working now in the tax business, I am really busy and on Sunday afternoon I had to watch my granddaughter ride in another rodeo. She did better than her first time which is great. She is improving daily and enjoying it.
I did relax last week and made some progress on my WIP's. Also, my partner received the ornament I stitched for her. Her is the one I did for her and the one I received from her.
 Istitched Country Couttage's Joy*Love*Peace and fiished it as an pillow ornament

Weekly Update

What a week! I have gone to work after a 4 month vacation. I am working for an accounting placement firm at present. They have placed me with a small CPA firm as a tax perparer for the tax season. I started on Wed and worked Wed, Thur and Friday. It is a good firm and very good to work for. I was tired each evening but rested by stitching a little. Stitching always relaxes me.
Today I am catching up with all. I have finished my February ornament-Bringing Home the Tree by Littlehouse. Here are pictures of my progress on WIPS and the finished ornament.
