My news and some patchwork

Okay some of you may have already guessed it clever peeps but here's my news. I'm pregnant! Only 7 weeks so early days. Wanted to wait till I'd seen the midwife before announcing it to the world! There are still a lot of people I havent told yet. Feel pretty sick and miserable which is why I haven't been on here for a while. I am thinking how much stitching time I have got between now and when the baby comes, due January 08. And how much stash I have collected up and will I ever get any of it finished. So I am wanting to try and focus on finishing some projects starting with Patchwork. Although saying that I have just signed up for the new Quaker SAL on the yahoo group Martina Weber one. And I have also seen this
Inspiration Rosewood Manor on thread bear which I think is quite unusual and I have also been browsing the Scarlet Letter at all their gorgeous repro samplers. Just not ennough time now perhaps.

Onto Patchwork, I love all the colours I am putting together on this. I am tring not to get any that are too samey but it's a difficult job as the motifs are many and varied. Here is my progress. It is very addictive once you start it.
Patchwork may 07

I ended up making the little heart into a pinkeep but mine never seem to look as good as some as your ones that i see. Practice makes perfect. I have met my May goals except the new start one unless you call the red heart a new start.

It's my birthday next week and my hubby has just surprised me with a trip to Paris - 3 nights!! We are going to take our dd to Disneyland. I know she will love it. In all our 8 years of marriage we have never been abroad together. In fact the last and only time I went abroad was when I was 15 years old!! To Bavaria. So it is quite a big thing for me. I just hope I won't feel too sick or panicky. I figure this may be our last chance to go for a while at least. Hopefully not another 8 years!!

Thanks for reading. When I stop feeling so sick I'll be able to stay on a little longer and get through some of all your posts. Have a good week. xx

Congratulations on the good news!
A friend emailed me a newsletter from a LNS in Arizona. In that newsletter was a picture of the Jan Houtman Patchwork Sampler. I immediately fell in love! I'm nuts to even consider it as I'm stitching And They Sinned, the Inspiration pattern you mention and several others! Sadly, I can't view your pictures from my work computer so I'll check them out at home soon. Are you using the suggested thread colors?
Congratulations again, Julie
