What's up?

I know...You will just have to bear with me....I am not good at titles for my blog! :)

Well, right now I am functioning on just a few hours sleep. Our littlest one was sick for half the night. YUCK! I hate when the kids get sick. You just never know if you are going to get it or it gets passed on to the rest of the kids. When something like that happens, sometimes it is a whole month before the family feels better. Cross your fingers and pray that does not happen!

What have I been stitching....well, believe it or not I have pulled our Mira's Cinderella. I have the castle done, just working on the dress. I guess I wanted to work on one of my big ones for a while. I am also working on some gifts for Christmas. Can't talk about those though.

Um, kids are doing great! DH is doing great too! I have so much to be thankful for!

Happy Fall!

Needlework Show

Head on over to the Needlework Show. I saw sooo much eye candy! Glad my pocket is empty or I wouldn't have anytime to stitch all the things I have in my stash!
Saw some really pretty scissors I would love to have.
So many patterns, I didn't even write them down. I do want to try one day...Brooke'sBooks Publishing I like the Halloween Fairy. She many others I would love to do too.
Enjoy the Show!

Another give away I found

Head on over to Green Fairy Quilts for another awesome give away! I love all their fabrics. Look at the holiday one particularly!

A new start

I thought I would try blogging on blogger...we will see how that goes!
The title of my blog "My Family Keeps Me in Stitches" is very true for my life. I have a large family. My husband and I have 7 children and yes, they are all ours! My Mother has always said to me, "You can either laugh or cry!" With 9 people in one house I have to choose to laugh. I love my family: my children and my husband. My faith is very strong and personal to me as well.
As far as stitches..well that goes to laughing and I love to cross stitch! It is my therapy. I tell my husband all the time it is either stitching or therapy! haha
This blog will have much about those three topics, family, faith and stitching.
So have fun reading my blog. I do enjoy reading yours!
