Thank You!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your warm congratulations and sweet comments on my pregnancy announcement. I felt so loved and supported by all your sweet thoughts! This past week was eventful-- the good news: I had a lovely, restful vacation visiting friends in Ohio (eat. walk. nap. read. stitch. repeat!). The bad news: this weekend I ended up in the emergency room due to some unexpected and scary bleeding. The good news again: they did an ultrasound and all is well; the bleeding was caused by a small tear called a subchorionic hemorrhage, which is nothing too serious. It was a very anxious situation to be sure, but in the end I saw my baby's heartbeat and had a good explanation for the bleeding. Hoping that the tear will resolve itself and I will go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

Now, how about some stitching??
I finished the needlecase from LHN's "Travelling Stitcher." This was a sweet and fun stitch.




Here is "Spring Has Come" by Prairie Schooler all finished up!


And my progress to date on Beatrix. This is what I worked on most of last week. I am finally finished with the first page ... really need to step it up on this one. Loving the Victorian Motto threads on this -- they stitch so nicely!

Ta Ta For Now. Hope you all have a lovely week.

I am SO glad that everything is okay, Rachel. I know your anxiety level must have been really high. I must have missed your last post somehow and I'd like to offer my congratulations to you! I absolutely loved being pregnant with both my boys and I hope you will too. Your LHN and PS finishes are wonderful - I especially love the PS! And Beatrix is gorgeous - love the floss color!

Congratulations again!

Oh, Rachel, how frightening! I'm s glad all is well. It must have been so exciting to hear the baby's heartbeat. Your stitching is lovely as always. I can't wait to see your Beatrix Potter projects for the baby, and I like your progress on Beatrix for mama!

What a scary moment for you Rachel. I'm so happy to hear that everything is OK, and I hope your pregnancy continues in a healthy manner.

All of your stitching is so very pretty! The spring sampler is gorgeous, the needles design so pretty, and I love the threads on your Beatrix Potter.

Take care!

How scary! I'm so glad that things are going well now and that your baby has a nice strong heartbeat...take care!

Love all your stitching, esp the PS finish. Everytime I see you finish one of these, I feel the urge to stitch it too!!!

So glad to hear that everything is okay! I think that I missed your last post too and so a big congratulations! I went through quite a few complications with both of my children (5 day hospital stays, etc.) and everything turned out fine. Just take of yourself. I love your LHN and PS finishes. Both are favorites of mine! Beatrix is beautiful. I started it once and abandoned it. Seeing yours makes me wish that I had continued. Again, a huge congratulations to you!

I bled with my pregnancies, too. Take care of yourself--let it be your body's way of telling you to take things easy, even if the drs did explain it away. Beautiful stitching!!
