 Also, enjoyed the FBYRA rodeo, My granddaughter, Anna, competed in barrel racing and pole bending. She did finish in the top 10 in barrels She also competed in the Rodeo queen contest with 7 other young ladies. She didn't win, but is a great young lady and always does her best.

Have a great week, stay cool and safe.
Find a lot of stitching time,

What a lovely young lady, thank you for sharing pictures of her endeavors and it is a big deal to make it into the top should be so proud of her! My goodness you have been busy with your stitching! All of it is so lovely, but my favorite is the Christmas Animals. I have drooled over that pattern for a while now, and it's fun to watch it come to life.

Joyce all your stitching is beautiful. I can't imagine how you keep so many projects in your rotation. I can barely keep 2 going.

The pictures of your Granddaughter are wonderful.

Stay cook in that Texas heat.

More lovely stitching, Joyce. I think Christmas Animals is my favourite in your rotation at the moment. It's lovely to read about Anna and her rodeos. May she continue to ride safely.
