Weekly update of WIP stitchery.

What a week, full of happiness and sadness. First, I attended Christopher's(grandson) FFA Banquet on Thursday evening. It was very nice and the seniors were awarded scholarships. Christopher will use his as he is going to fire academy at Lone Star College, Cypress, TX. He has become a great young man.
Then last sunday I watched Anna ride a new horse in competition and did really well at the barrells and poles. Se is becoming quite the young cowgirl.

Then for the sadness, another classmate and friend, Jere Nell Kubala Claghorn, lost the battle with cancer. This brings our number to 31 from our high school class of '58. Also, I am on my way to Hutto for the service of a dear and close cousin in law. We cousins in my Mothers family have grown up together and have stayed close.
Today is a fun day althought, will be attending a Founders Day Luncheon with my sorority sisters.
I did get some stitching done with all that was going on this past week

Weekly Stitchery Update

Good morning from Texas. We had a great weekend, with the weather being perfect to be outside. I enjoyed my granddaughter riding in a riding club rodeo. She did very well, still learning as she has only been riding since last August. I did get some stitching don and finished my March ornament.
Almost finished the fourth Littlehouse season pillow for my daughter's birthday. Here are pictures of last weeks WIP progress and finish.

Hope all of you had a great Easter Holiday. I spent the day going to Church with my daughter and grandkids and then Christopher grilled for lunch. It was a great day.
Here are pictures of my week of stitching on my WIPS. Didn't get as much as I would have liked, due to work being very busy this week. I work for a CPA and it is tax time.
