Just Some Updates!!

Here is a picture of my Starry Night, it is a mobile picture so the quality isn't the best.  I am almost finished with (my page one) I make working copies because I abuse my charts highlighters big X's when I finish a square etc, plus I increase the size some too so my page one isn't necessarily a page according to the kit. I am loving this but glad to be taking a break working on Connor's birth announcement. I didn't realize how the color changes were slowing me down so much.

Picture update # 4
Again sorry about the quality.

Here is my birth announcement for Connor. Oh my the frog has visited so much and there are a few permanent mistakes but I have been able to "fix" them can you tell where they are?? Seriously if you can please let me know I'd rather know now than people point them out once it is finished and framed and hanging in his room haha.
I have realized that gridding is a life saver for me, I still do the counting like normal but...its more of a "okay I should be hitting a grid line" and if I am I know I am safe and if I'm not I know I need to recount. I know a lot of stitchers think its cheating...but it saves me heartache :)

I can't believe I will be 31 weeks this Sunday, time is flying by yet crawling so slow. I am so excited to meet my little boy, but so scared at the same time. I mean my choices can affect this child forever!!!
Whew. Alot is resting on our shoulders.

We got the pack 'n play, play yard put together LOL that was fun and then the stroller too. I just have to say the only word on the English instructions were "SNAP" with a digital drawing of the item but for the other languages there were like 30 words each diagram. Makes you wonder how many words it takes to say "snap" in french LOL

I have joined a yahoo group called "The stitch specialists" I am so excited. A designer "Abi" not sure of her last name or is she wants it posted on the internet so will refrain at this time. Has made a project- they used it as a SAL but I'm a little behind and will be working on it late but its called "tree of stitches" Its all about specialty and stitching on linen. The instructions provided are GREAT and the chart beautiful! I am so excited to start this! Going to finish the birth sampler before I start the TOS and gotta get some fabric too and maybe some new thread. We will see! I may just use some threads from my current collection.

I think this is all for now, hope you all are doing great!
