Weekly Update

Our fall and winter has come to Texas. Only in the 40s and 50s during the day and it is suppose to freeze Thanksgiving night. Now is the time to stay inside and stitch. My Saturday stitching group went on a road trip to the new ABC Stitchery Shop in Spring, TX. The store has relocated from New Hampshire to TX. It is about an hour from us here in Katy and Richmond. We got there as the store opened at 10am and didn't leave until 1pm. It is a wonderful shop full of lots of great items, including a long wall of thread of all types. Needless to say we all added to our stash. Then we stopped for lunch and a lot of talking. What a fun time we had.
I have a large finish this week. I started The Library-Littlehouse Needleworks in Jan 2010 and have now finished it, Nov 2013. My niece is going to have it framed and put it next to The Bookshelf-Littlehouse Needleworks(also stitched by me) in her Junior High Library where she is the librarian.

Here are pictures of my progress on WIPs for the week

What a beautiful job on the Library finish. The wips are coming on great too. And a day trip out with stitching friends always involves more stash and chat doesn't it!
