I spent the weekend working long hours again. Not as many hours as last weekend but more hours than I care to work. I'm glad it's Tuesday and I can sit, relax and stitch. I told Keith that I wasn't going to do ANYTHING today but relax. Although I do have to be at work at 10:30 for a meeting, but that gives me a chance to hit the library afterwards.
My Mother In law was here last night. She is with out electric, won't be restored for 5 to 7 days, because of the high winds we had from the hurricane. She brought us all her fridge and freezer food. She couldn't see it all going to waste. Specking of hurricane winds...Man was it awful. I can't imagine what a real hurricane would be like. The winds were so strong that I thought for sure our house was going to be blown away. And the sounds the winds made..I'll never forget it. Sounded like a high pitch scream.
An update on Brandon sleeping...Well...I put a small TV in his room. (we don't have a radio other than our computers). We leave it on all night so he has sound and some light from it. The 1st few nights it worked great. The last 2 nights have been OK, he still screams and throws a fit but not for a long period of time. I'd say about 10 minutes. And we don't tell him it's bed time. Or tell him to go to sleep. We tell him it's time to lay and watch TV. And he does it. I hate using the TV to get him to sleep, hate the thought of him watching TV at all, but it works. And that's all I really care about. Does using the TV method make me a bad mom?
I received a magazine in the mail yesterday from Mary in WC (no blog that I know of). It is the magazine that has this witch in it. I first seen this witch onchiloe's blog and fell in LOVE with her. Isn't she great looking. I can't wait to stitch her and will probably start her as soon as I finish my DMC Bath time. I hope I have the prefect fabric in my stash for her. And specking of Chiloe's blog. She has a GREAT blog started full of galleries to check out. Here is the link..plz take time to check it out.cross stitch gallerie .
And here is a picture of my WIP..I didn't get much stitching done this weekend due to my work hours, but I did get a lot stitched last Thursday. It's coming along nicely. I don't know why but I can't seem to get a good picture of this piece. Maybe the next picture I'll put something dark behind it. See if that helps.
For a birthday present to myself I am now a subscriber to the cross stitch magazine called Just cross stitch. I can't wait to get my 1st magazine. Keith had a fit over it because he was going to pay for the subscription for me, as a b-day gift from him, but I jumped the gun and couldn't wait. LOL Oops..sorry hun..you will have to think of something else to get me. And only 2 weeks to come up with it!
