Weekly Update

A day late posting, but I am here today. Sunday afternoon was spent enjoying watching my granddaughter ride at her monthly riding club. She did really well, improving all the time.
This week I am house sitting and providing a taxi to and from the riding stables as my daughter is out of town on business this week. I have completed backstitching the 33 line poem and am down adding a row of small roses at the top. It will be framed in a 12x16 frame and given to our women of the year beginning day next Saturday. I will have a picture next week of the finished item to show. Here are pictures of my week of WIPs progress.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished and framed poem! How exciting to be almost done with the Alphabet Samplings Book. Halloween House and Redbirds are both beautiful.

Some pretty things there, Joyce. Grats to the grandchild for her riding skills. I would love to go riding again, but I think I'm too heavy, sigh... (Not that I really care but...) I'm on break this week and playing a little bit of catch up. I hope you're doing well!!!
