Weekly Update on stitching and life.

Summer is here in Texas, hot and hot. We have had a nice rain this afternoon and everything looks nice and green. My Granddaughter. Anna(13) is competing in rodeo events for juniors. She took part last Saturday in an event and won 4th overall in her division in cloverleaf, figure 8 and poles. Most of us know these better as barrel racing. Of course, Grandmother is very proud of her.
I finished stitching an ornament for the Christmas Crafters group and got it in the mail. I will picture it after it is received. I also finished another greeting card using a design called "January Doodle" by Blueladie designs. It was a fun design to do. Check her website out at
