oh baby


Time to re-arrange some stitching priorities ... next January (Lord willing), we will be welcoming our first child! I am still pinching myself and getting used to the idea. So far I have not had any sort of morning sickness, so it hardly seems real.

I plan on blogging for my family over at Vox Vendsel and have a post up there about finding out, if you are interested in reading it.

I am having visions of a Beatrix Potter nursery ... I bought some of those Beatrix Potter leaflets by Green Apple about 10 years ago and have been saving them! So much to stitch, so little time. :)

So many fun things ahead, congrats. The Beatrix Potter nursery idea sounds wonderful. Every since I saw the movie Miss Potter I have thought that would be so sweet. My daughter didn't agree and went with cutesy rather than classic. Oh well. Enjoy it all, CJ ok;-)
