Blog Update of stitching and family

Fall is in the air somewhere. Here in Texas, it is still very warm and we are recovering from Hurricane Harvey and the flood. We were lucky and did not get any flooding in our neighborhood. Many of our friends did, so please keep Texas in your prayers. I have been stitching a little on my rotation and have even finished a couple of items. I have also started to finish the sleds from Sue Hillis(pictures next time. Our Fort Bend Country Fair starts the 29th of Sept and I have been getting items ready to enter. I also volunteer in the Creative Arts Department, which is also fun. I enjoy seeing what other are creating. Here are my two items that I have now finished.
1.     “May Bluebird” The Button Up Birdies #4- by Cathy Jean-The Victoria Sampler
September Weather Poems-Sue Cook-Britian’s #1 Crossstitch Magazine-2000 issues
Here are the WIPs in my rotation that I have stitched some on:
1.      “August” Calendar Girl Series-Little House Needleworks
      “Texas Coral(IndianPaintBrush)Flower”–The 12 Days of Texas Christmas Series -Redbird Designs.
     “Caroling Quartet” #3 Hometown Holiday Series-Little House Needleworks
I somehow started this "Caroling Quartet" twice, so I will make an ornament out of the second one.
      When Cardinals Appear – Blackberry Lane Designs
    Snowman Towel- Border Bonanza –Cross My Heart

Oh my goodness! I have been thinking about those homecoming mums recently and I was wondering if the tradition was still going strong. I graduated from a Texas high school 27 years ago, and ours were not quite that big. You could wear one on each shoulder and the streamers came down to about mid-thigh. Thanks for the memories, Joyce! :O)
