It has been a long time! These are some pictures I took at my mom's house a few weeks ago. I meant to post them then! The first picture is one of the first ones I did years ago. The second picture is my mom's "welcome wall." And the third is a sampler she did with our birth dates and my parents' wedding date. I have many more pictures to blog, but with homeschool, I am running short of time. I have been dealing with my three-year-old's philosophy of life this morning: because Bella's stuffed animal was sitting in a chair, that meant she (Bella) was in the chair first and so of course Mary Margaret should have to move.

I have been working on 'Sunlit' by Blackbird Designs. The fabric and colors are so beautiful. It is a real pleasure to stitch. Last night (while watching 300), I finished 'Against Every Sin.' I cannot wait to start something new, but feel a bit overwhelmed. Now that homeschool has started up again in earnest (did it ever really stop?) I wonder if I will have as much time to stitch as I have over the summer. My mom and I went a bit crazy ordering from Stitching Bits and Bobs. They are having a sale until this Wednesday. I ordered 'Trix and Treats' by Blackbird Designs. I would like to start something from that. And I just won 'Pretty Pumpkins" by Homespun Elegance that Tanya listed on ebay! But for this morning, it is back to math... Does teaching Mary Margaret (6 1/2 years old) to cross stitch count as 'school' for the Georgia attendance records? It would have at one time, that's for sure.
