Weekly Update

What a wonderful week I have had. First there were 5 ladies that went on our road trip to the new ABC stitchery shop in Spring, TX. Of course we all added to our stash. It was fun to go to a shop and see the items in person. We have missed our shop in Richmond since it closed. After shopping, we then had lunch and back home(an hour trip). We did a lot of visiting and looking forward to the next time. Then I spent Thanksgiving at my daughter's with family. We ate and played Spades and had a wonderful afternoon together. I have sent my last ornament exchange and Secret Santa Gift off. Now to finish up on a few more ornaments that will be gifts this year. I have given the first ornament- Redbirds Rejoice-Blue Ribbon designs as a gift to the lady I work for. She had commented that she liked an ornament with the date on it each year and of course I date mine. She was proud of it.
I have finished another greeting card-February Doodle-Blueladie Designs. I plan to do the whole year as greeting cards. Check her website out at . Here are my pictures of the completed cards and the WIP items.
