Weekly Update

What a wonderful week I have had. My 74th Birthday was Saturday, the 11th. I stitched the morning with our monthly stitch-in in Katy. Stitching, chatting, show and tell of stitching and enjoying fresh Peach cobbler. Then the 10 ladies sang Happy Birthday to me, what fun. Then Saturday evening, my daughter, Deanna, and grandkids, Christopher and Anna, hosted a party at the winery tasting room for me. What fun, with family and friends. Wine, chocolate, stitching patterns and kits and a pretty red scarf were just a few of the great gifts I received. I did get some stitching done also last week. Make some progress of several of my WIPS. I also stitching a piece for a Valentine exchange with the Friendly Stitches group. Here are pictures of the WIPS. Also a few pictures from the party, more pictures to come from my daughter.
