August blog update

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Texas is having their normal summer, hot, hot and hot and dry. Today in Southeast Texas it is in the high 90s , feeling like 108. Time to stay inside and stitch.
I did finish the wedding piece for my daughter's wedding Oct 20th and even have it framed.

 I can now stitch on my rotation pieces and have finished stitching a couple of them.

I also stitched on another ornament for a gift this year.

August has been really excited for my family. I have a granddaughter, Anna who graduated from Foster High School, Richmond, TX in May and will be attending Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX this fall. She received a $16,000 scholarship from Rodeo Austin and we all went to the award ceremony in Austin, Texas held at The Bullock Texas State History Museum on August 9. 28 youth from all round Texas received from $4,000 to $16,000 each totaling $400,00. It is wonderful to see what great donors we have in the great state of Texas.

Also, her roommate in her dorm has grown up together from elementary school to college! How ironic! who would have thought?❤️❤️

It is amazing to see how our young people leave for college today.

Time to stitch a little bit now.
Enjoy the rest of Summer.
