Weekly Update

Happy Sunday to all of you. Here in my part of Texas, it is hot(in the 90s daily) and we are having no rain, need some really bad. My Granddaughter, Anna, is doing so well with her riding. She is taking part in the weekly summer rodeos held by The Fort Bend Youth Rodeo. After 3 weeks with 2 more to go, she is in 10th place in straight poles, 15th in straight barrels and doing better each week in the cloverleaf barrels. Proud Grandmother, I am. Saturday morning, I enjoyed our monthly stitch in with 7 ladies. We did some stitching and a lot of visiting. Always a lot of fun. I did make some progress on my WIPs this week. Here are the pictures of the progress.
