Weekly Update

I am finally finding time to set down and post my weekly update. Our Fort Bend County Fair started on Friday with a parade and then a rodeo that evening. Then on Saturday, went with my daughter to watch Anna ride with the Youth Rodeo Association in Gonzales, TX. Last evening was another rodeo that Anna rode in. She did well all around.
Now for my exciting news. I have entered my crossstitch for many years and only won blue and red ribbons. This year, I finally won a rosette for my Alphabet Samplings Book=With My Needle. More pictures of the others items entries later, but for now here is the rosette picture. Not very good of me, but you're looking at the crossstitch not me, right.
Also, here are pictures of my week's progress on WIPs and another ornament finished.
My granddaughter Anna is carrying the Texas Flag and my daughter, Deanna is next to her carried the Saint Luke's Hospital Flag, a sponer.

Here I am with the rosette and blue ribbon I won at the 2013 Fort Bend County Fair, Texas for my Alphabet Samplings Book-With My Needle

I also won 3 other blue ribbons and red and blue ribbons in the Holiday section, pictures to come.
