Weekly Update

A good Sunday afternoon to stay inside with a glass of Ice Tea and stitch. It is in the 90s here in Texas. Once again, I am a proud Grandmother. My granddaughter, Anna(13) competed in her first big event of the summer. Will have pictures next week as I am waiting for my daughter to send me the pictures she took. Anna did her best time at all events at the Fort Bend Youth Rodeo last night. She was 11th(missed 10th by a fraction) out of 20 in straight barrels, 7th out of 20 in poles and placed in the middle of 20 in cloverleaf(Barrels). For my new followers, here is a picture from a couple of weeks ago.

I did make progress on several WIPS this past week. Completed stitching and finishing another ornament for the next exchange. My exchange partner from Germany in the Friendly Stitchers group received my ornament, so will show you what I stitched. Also, I received my ornament from David in the May-July exchange with the Christmas Crafters group.

Congratulations to your granddaughter! WTG. :) Your stitching is lovely, as always. I love the halloween piece. It's getting to be that time of year, isn't it. Right now I'm stitching a July piece and CCNs Santa's Village. :) Don't bother to look, tho, no pics yet. Take care. Drinking lemondade and ice water here, (Kentucky) 90* too. :-o

Your stitching is beautiful as always. It's been in the upper 80's/lower 90's here, too. Humid, too. Yuck. To top it off, we got about 3" of rain Saturday. :(
