Yikes! Where has the time gone?!?

Wow, over a week since my last post! And sadly, I haven't done much stitching in that time, either. Between work, my first round of doctors' appointments, my mom coming out to visit this weekend for a scrapbooking event, and the tiredness that has finally hit me (although thankfully, that's pretty much the only "pregnancy symptom" I've had to deal with), I just haven't been in the mood to sit and stitch.

I HAVE made a bit of progress on the latest round of the Neighborhood RR - here is Toni's square as of tonight.

Don't mind the bit of pet hair on the left side of the square! But now it looks a bit more like a house and gazebo. This round is kind of difficult for me....it is 36-ct. linen, which is a smaller count fabric than I ever use, and the margins are so small that I have to work in-hand (something else I rarely do). but I just keep plugging away!

Oh, and an SBQ I missed from last week:
What proportion of your stitching is for your own personal use versus gifts?
Well, I'd say that about 90% of the stuff I stitch starts OUT to be for me....but then down the road, I decide that something will make a perfect gift for someone. I think I keep 50-75% of the things I stitch in the end, though. Working on this round robin may change those percentages a bit, though!

Hi,

I always read you blog but must have missed your posts about you being pregnant, congratulations.

I also am pregnant and have estimated that i will be due in May also, i was quite excited when i read your posts lol!

It was a surprise for me and my partner he did not talk to me for nearly a week but he is quite excited about it all now thank goodness i was getting worried for a minute.

I unfortunately have been suffering with bad nausea and very tired all the time, you are very lucky not to be getting morning sickness.

My first scan is on the 5th of Nov, looking forward to that.

Well i will be keeping up on you blog to see how things go, i have started a seperate blog for baby stuff feel free to check it out under my other blogs in my profile.

Take care
Naomi
