Weekly Update

Good morning. Our weather is Texas is great these days. Nights are in the 50s and 60s and the days are in the 80s. My busy time is over for a while, so I have been doing a lot of relaxing and stitching.
Also, enjoyed a Sunday afternoon watching my granddaughter and other youths ride and competing in a rodeo. I have also been stitching on ornaments for exchanges. I am in a Yearly Ornament exchange with a great group of crafters, an ornament exchange with Brooks Books, and an ornament exchange with the Friendly Stitchers Group(pictures later). Also stitching ornaments for my family and friends as they look forward to receiving one from me each year. I did finish my first design that I made the pattern on the PC Stitch software. I have a lot to learn with that software, but am enjoying it. Here are my WIPs and the finished "Sleepy" . I let my granddaughter decide how I will finish Sleepy. It will be finished as a small pillow.
 “G” -Stitcher’s  Alphabet – BrooksBook

1.     “Christmas Angels“ #2 Heavenly Host” Collection(4)-Joan Elliott 

1.     Greeting Card-August Doodle 2013-Blueladie Designs. I now have 8 cards stitched in the set.

This is the picture that I used to make my pattern on the PC Stitch software.
 Here is the stitched piece of "Sleepy". Now to finish it as a pillow for my granddaughter.
Happy stitching or whatever life throws your way.

Your work is gorgeous, Joyce. I have the alphabet stitches by Brooke in my queue also, along with her Advent Animals. Sleepy looks wonderful and your granddaughter will have a treasured memory.
