Weekly Update

Hello from hot, hot, and dry Texas. It is good to stay inside and stitch or read or craft and watch a little baseball, football or your favorite TV. My stitching on my regular rotation only made a little progress this week. I was asked to backstitch a poem and add yellow roses as a border for our Women of the Year in my sorority(Beta Sigma Phi) as her gift the end of this month. Therefore, I stitched a lot of it instead of my regular WIPs. I did however put a few stitches in each of them although. Here are my pictures of my progress for the week.
