Good morning all. It is cool in the 60s but the Sun is shining nicely. I did a little Grandmother duties this week as my daughter was out of town some. I did get some stitching done, even finished a pillow ornament(Joy Peace Love-Country Cottage Needleworks) for an exchange. I got it in the mail to Canada and will post a picture after she receives it. I have included the pattern in my give a way, see end of this update. Here are pictures of my stitching of WIPs for the week.

Good morning all. We are having cold nights and nice (in the 60s and 70s) days with the sun shining.
I have had a busy week, but still managed to get a little stitching and card making done. I have almost completed my next ornament exchange piece and will picture it after my partner get it. Hope all had a great Valentines Day. My daughter brought me a vase of pretty flowers from her and the grandkids.
Then I received a box in the mail with winnings from Astrid at http://astridxstitching.blogspot.com/. She has a neat blog, check it out.
I love to read and enter give a ways on blogs. This time I won a collection of stitching and cardmaking supplies. Here is a picture of what was in the box. Looking forward to using the items.
Also I will be having another give a way in the next couple of weeks, be on the lookout.
Here are progress pictures of the WIPS that I stitched on this past week.

Now that the weekend is over, it is bad to normal for me. Saturday morning started with our monthly stitch in at one of the stitcher's home. There were 7 of us, stitching, eating a cupcake or two, looking at everyone's show and tell. They are some great stitchers in this group. Then on Saturday afternoon, I went into Houston to the Renaissance Hotel for our Beta Sigma Phi Valentine Dance. Several of us met for Happy Hour and then attending the dance. The Theme was " A Night at the Moulin Rouge" and was so much fun. There were 73 of us having dinner and then dancing the night away. The hotel gives us discount rates, so we just spend the night at the hotel, had breakfast together and then came home. This is me at the dance.
I did make progress on several of my WIPs and also an exchange ornament that I will show after my partner receives it.
