Weekly Update

Happy Thanksgiving. Hope all of you will have a great week with a lot stitching, family, and food.
I have a lot to be thankful for in family and friends.
I finished the February Calendar Girl by Littlehouse Needleworks and got stitching done on a few other WIPs. I am stitching a little each day on ornaments as I give them as gifts to family and friends
These were taken on my Grandson's 20th birthday dinner at Oliver Gardens.

 My niece in the middle joined us, too.
 Mom has done a great job of raising two great kids.
