Update on stitchery and life

What a finish for Sept and start for October I have had. Our Fort Bend County Fair here in SE Texas was from Sept 25 thru Oct 4. I volunteer in the Open Adult (Creative Arts) Department as well as enter in several divisions. Also, have been to a couple of Youth Rodeo to watch my Granddaughter ride and compete. She is so much fun to watch. I also work for a CPA as a tax preparer/accountant, we have been really busy with the Oct 15 deadline for filing your 2014 income tax return. The end is in sight so I will start having more time to stitch, yea.
Here is a picture of my entries this year.

I won a Rosette(outstanding) and a blue ribbon on a collection of handmade greeting cards and a blue ribbon on a set of monthly calendars I make as gifts for Christmas in the Arts & Crafts division, a blue ribbon on my first pair of glasses in 1946 in the antique division, 5 blue ribbons in the holiday division and 4 blue ribbons in the stitchery division. It is fun to enter and volunteer.
I did make a little progress on a few of my WIPs also.
     “These Boots Are Made for Walkin” – Bobbie G
1.     “Christmas Angel“ #3 Heavenly Host-Collection(4)-Joan Elliott 
 Christmas Animals – Heaven And Earth
1.     “Sleepy Kittens” – Sunset Kit-finishing stitching for a friend,
whose Mother had started it before she passed away.
1.     Texas Signs of Spring #2 – Redbird Designs
This was done for a Birthday gift for my Great Niece, who is  a student at Texas A&M
1.      “Toy Store” #4 Hometown Holiday Series-Little House Needworks
     Wine Glass – Spring Bouquer Collection  Mill Hill Kir
I am planning on stitching several for gifts. I have finished the first one and have started on the second one.
That is it for this update. Have a wonderful fall.
