Ok, it's officially Autumn now! It feels so chilly out! We left our windows open last night and froze!! :) I uploaded a pic of sophie, so I thought I'd post it. Here's she is...

Hoping to get more done after Jake's down for the night. I did get something framed today Egg Basket, a shop exclusive by Shepherd's Bush.

That's all for now! :)
I haven't done any stitching lately! I've been working and cleaning and doing schoolwork and taking care of the kids! And when that's all done I'm too tired to pick up a needle! I was bad again, I stopped at my LNS on Friday and got the last new SB kit I wanted. Oh well, I work hard for my money, I deserve a little treat every now and then! :) That's all for now! I'll post more when I get time! Laundry's calling! fun, fun!!

Decided to add some more pictures! Thanks for the comment stacey, I'm glad it works! :) Well, just one more hour before I have to go to start getting for work, the countdown begins. Maybe I can get a little stitching down. Jake is taking a nap. Let me go set the timer! :)

P.S. Today is the first official day of Autumn! Yeah!!
I got out another UFO last night. Queen Mermaid by Mirabilia. She almost finished, except for her hair and body. I just dread all that skin! I don't know why?? Skin phobia?? She's going to be so pretty once finished, I just need the motivation!!

After I stitched a little bit on her, I got sophie back out and finished up the light pink. I got her hands and face done, next I'll do her little hat and the flowers.

And then on to the border. I just love stitching with silk. It's easy to use compared to DMC cotton. I wish everyhing could be silk!! :) Well, not much else. I actually have to work for the next 3 days and I'm not looking forward to it. Wish I could have enough money to be a stay-at-home mom, but then again it is nice to get out and talk to adults! :)

Ok Stacey, this is for you!! LOL :) I have been busy with my ds Jake. He's been sick and it's either from teething or a bug, or both. He's got two molars coming in. Not fun! Here's the latest picture of him...

As you can see his shirt is all drooly and he's got a little rash from the drool on his chin. Poor baby!! :) One thing nice about him being sick is he wants to be held a lot. It was so sweet just snuggling with him yesterday. I love my boys more than anything!! :)

Well, got a little stitching done on a UFO Angel of Winter. I had forgotten how much white and blue is in this design. I think I started it in 98. It would be so nice to get it finished one of these years!! :)

I also got some stitching done on SB's Sophies Roses. At first I stitched the girl with the wrong pink. Frogged it all and used the pink provided, but noticed it looked more like light purple than light pink. I went through my silk stash and realized I have two colors listed for that number (3332) a very light pink and a very light purply-pink. So maybe they changed the dye lot?? I frogged one more time and used the light pink in my stash, which is more like the picture. At least I'm on the right track now! :) Well, that's all for now!

Is there anything better than a baby's laugh? I just don't think so! And is there anything worse than a baby's cry?? Especially when you are sooo tired?? :)
Decided to title my Blog "Autumn Sway," because I have all the windows open, and although it's not Autumn yet, it's starting to feel like it. I just love the sound of the trees swaying in the breeze. I live in the woods in NW Georgia, so there's plenty of them!!

My house after we just bought it last year.
My first official post! I am off work today!! Woo hoo! What an emotional week it was for me! Money has been a little tight for us, so I was contemplating working fulltime. I told my boss what I'd like to do and he was ok with it. I got home and spent time with my kids and I realized that I couldn't do it! I was crying the whole day! Once I made that decision I felt so much better! I decided I would sell everything, eat rice everyday. Whatever! I just couldn't leave my babies! I have been working about 30 hours a week now, but it's only temporary until a co-worker gets back to work. She recovering from surgery. Well, that's about all! Got an 83 on a math quiz and got some stitching done. I think I need to work on a small project for some IG (instant gratification). These BAPs are getting me down!! :)

P.S. someone is giving away free puppies down the street! I want one!! I haven't even seen them, and I want one!!!!
