Ooooooh baby pics!

Oh my it's been a while since the last time I posted. I haven't really had much to share till today but today's been a fab day. I finally had my first baby scan which they normally do between 10-12 weeks but I was 13+!! Actually found out today that I am actually 14 weeks tomorrow! So I am a little further on than I had thought - only by a few days. It was such a relief seeing the tiny heartbeat ticking away and its arms and legs kicking. It's so good to see what is actually inside. It has been particularly stressfull for me recently as dh has been working away again and there was a problem with getting him back for the scan. Well, not so much getting him home but getting him back out there in time for the next gig! I am praying for no delays as he has just got on a plane to Heathrow and then flying out to Bucharest in the morning. So it was touch and go for a while but he made it to the scan so all is well. They can't tell the gender at this stage but we will be finding out at our 20 week scan.

13 week scan 16th July 07


And, now onto some stitching. It was the HAED SAL this weekend and I was stitching Twilight Shimmer and I have the beginnings of a face!!! You can make out her nose and lips and an eye. I am getting a trifle bored with all the blues but I think I did extremely well this weekend. It must have had something to do with DH being away. By the way he is away for another week, back monday, then going away again Tuesday!! I am not getting to see him hardly any this month sniff sniff (that'll be the hormones!)So here she is in all her glory. I saw on Rachel's blog (Willing Hands) that she has been busy with her Loose Feathers. I feel so bad as I haven't even started one of their designs yet and another is on its way!!!

July SAL progress

Oh yep, I have also ordered some fabric from Sugar Maple Fabrics to start my Cirque de Circles chart. I have never ordered from them before but Mindy was ever so nice and helpful. I hope it comes quickly. I haven't yet decided on threads yet but will post a pic as soon as I get everything together.

So happy stitching, till another day, or another week lol.... xxxxx

How exciting to be able to see the baby, it must have been wonderful to have heard its heartbeat and all. Your HAED is looking lovely, nice progress. Looking forward to seeing what color combination you decide on for CdC.

Oooo baby scan, looking good, sweetie and your SAL piece is stunning I've gave up on mine missed too many weekends :( never mind, I noticed your post on HAED board about Cirque I love the fabric you've chosen, you've stumped me for thread colours I was thinking a gold colour but quite muted and depending on the colours in the fabric maybe greens, I would def do a floss toss, I bought a stunning Needle Nes floss no name but it has 107 on it must be floss number it's purples, browny-orange and greeny-blue that might go

Love your WIP.. It's a nice felling to see your work start looking like something, hugh.

Jamie said...

BABIES! Oh I just love the little critters. They are just so sweet, even at 14 weeks.

Your HAED looks fantastic. I hope the traveling with your hubby's job hasn't been too stressful.

I cannot wait to see your CDC start.

Thanks so much for your kind words and warm thoughts on my blog - they mean so much.

So good your DH was able to attend the scan, bet he was pleased. You have got a lovely photo and it brings back lovely memopries from not that long ago :-)) I found out what sex DS was as he was my second baby, DD the first was a surprise but I think you 'know' what you are carrying :-))
Lovely progress on your HAED piece too!

How exciting - your first look at your baby! They didn't do that back-in-the-day when I was having babies, but my daughter is going for her first on August 9th. How are you feeling?
