Suffice it to say, life is moderately insane lately. Being pregnant, working 2 jobs, hunting for/bidding on a house....sheesh. In fact, right now I'm at my second job (occasional weekend shifts at a nearby college library), waiting for a call from our realtor. Aghhhhhhhhhhhhh! All I seem to do is work, sleep, and pee a lot. But on the bright side, my blood sugars have been freakishly normal and I feel pretty good (albeit mildly stressed), so I refuse to feel guilty for my nightly after-dinner naps. hehehe
Stitching....uhh.....yeah. I did finish the photo album cover - in my previous post - and Grandma loved it. I've also finished my Halloween piece for the HOE exchange, and am just waiting for a package containing a few extra goodies to arrive so I can mail that out. Other than that....napping has been winning out over stitching. I did pull out Shepherd's Bush "Father Christmas" for a night or 2, but no really significant progress was made. Maybe I should refrain from goal-setting for a couple months??
1) Finish the "something small" I started in August! yes, finished and gifted.
2) Work on Halloween exchange piece. yes.
3) Work on Labyrinth. no.
4) Finish ornamentifying the sprites! no. (although 3 of the four just need stuffed and whip-stitched)
5) Work on Fairy Tale Towne? Or maybe my last square on my Woodland RR piece? Hmmm. nope, none of those emerged from the workbasket. whoops.
2) ornamentify the sprites.
So there you go. Aren't you impressed with my drive and determination?!?!?!? I do have some fabric and a pattern for something that might be a cute nursery decoration....but I'm not making any promises.
Oh, and we have an ultrasound next week....18 weeks....maybe we'll know if it is a boy or girl in there..... :)
After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way. I did add...
Related to my latest finish - it is stitched on 32-ct. linen. I started out stitching with 2 strands of floss, but quickly decided that I d...
...or you will end up frogging a whole bunch of over-one stitching. Grrr. So there is no progress pic on the cowboy piece today, because I...
This is the little mermaid pattern I started the other night - a freebie. There was no color key, so I'm using: Crescent Colors "...
