Weekly Update

Good morning to all. It is sunny, hot and very dry here in my part of Texas. It is a good time to stay inside and stitch. I did get out Thursday evening and watch my Granddaughter, Anna, take part in the August Fort Bend County Youth Rodeo. She has only been riding for a year, but has come a long way. She didn't make the finals, but was in the top group of riders. Of course, I have a few pictures, which include the grand entry of the rodeo.

I did finish another ornament this past week. Also make some progress on WIPs that I am stitching on and started the letter "E" of the Stitchers Alphabet by Brooks Books. Here are the pictures:
The Alphabet Samplings Book-With My Needle
15th page of 16
Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking
I stitched some of the backstitching on the lantern.
