Progress on America

Good Afternoon. I made some progress on this piece. I know I scanned it crooked. Sorry about that. I thought I would have more done on it than this but my eyes have been giving me problems so it's been slow going. This morning I laid it down to do an easier piece. I'm doing Lady Bug Baby by Ellen Mauer-Strohl. It looks like it will go easy. I am trying to get ornaments done and larger pictures done for some of the great nieces and nephews. The lady bug baby will probably go to 1 year old Aubrielle.

Speaking of great nieces and nephews. No. 20 was born Wed. They named him Ryker. I know it's a little different but I've heard the name a few times and really like it. So now I have 11 great nephews (no 12 due in Aug.) and 9 great nieces.

Today is Addie's (one of my great nieces) birthday. Tomorrow she is having a big birthday party with her school friends and girl cousins at the gymnastics club she's a member of. Hard to believe she's growing up so fast. She won't be a little girl much longer.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

Congratulations on your new great-nephew. 20 of them! I'm surprised you can keep track of all their names. Will you be stitching something for him?

Love your WIP, Barb! And what an amazing number of nieces and nephews. Interestingly, my son's best friend has a son named Ryker (not sure if it's spelled the same way or with an "i").
