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.

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. :)
