Weekly Update

Fall is in the air and the Holidays are coming. What a great time of the year! My Monthly Saturday Stitching group met on Sat. We always have a fun morning, stitching, enjoying everyone's stitched work and their WIPs. We also planning a road trip on Saturday Nov. 23. ABC Stitchery Shop moved from New Hampshire to Spring, Texas. This is only about an hour from us. What fun, after enjoying their online shop, now we can go to the shop.
It has been a busy week with family, friends and work. I did get some stitching in although. Finished a couple of exchange ornaments, also finished a couple of other pieces too. Here are pictures for the week. This first ornament and handmade card went to Melinda in the Brooks Books group exchange.
