Weekly Update

Since Winter still is around, I hope all of you are staying warm. Our weather has been cold for my spot of Texas. It has been in the 30s and 40s all week. Hopefully Spring is just around the corner.
I had a fun week. Saturday morning was our monthly Stitch in. The lady that opens her home since our LNS closed is great. There were an overload of stitches this past Sat., a total of 12. We took over her home needless to say. There was a lot of stitching, show and tell and chatting. Already looking forward to next month. Saturday, I went to my sorority's Valentine dance and had fun.
I also stitching and made some progress on a number of my WIPs. Also finished March 2013 Doodle by Blueladie designs. I am turning them into greeting cards.
