Dreaming Mermaid and rotation update

Gosh isn't time flying by!! Tomorrow I will be 29 weeks pregnant! As I am having a c section at 39 weeks this means I have 10 weeks to countdown. That is if I don't go earlier. But at the most I have ten weeks left. My bump is getting bigger by the day and is definitely football shaped all at the front this time. I keep thinking I should post a pic of me and bump so I can have something to remember. We have nearly finished decorating Lily's room now and her new furniture comes on Thurday so we can move her in and start on the baby's room. We have ordered the pram and carseat (a huge expense) and I have started getting some bits and pieces together for the hospital. So exciting. Good news is that dh is back from touring now (he had to come home early) so it's really wonderful to have him back home and around me to help as I have been really tired.

Stitch wise, today I have just finished making up my Harvest Exchange for the SBEBB and will be sending that off in the next couple of days. I enjoyed working on it and really hope my partner like it. Will post pics when it arrives at its destination.

Dreaming Mermaid page 5 is finally complete YaY!!! I am wel into page 6 now but all I have left is half pages to do. No more full pages!! So here's my progress so far.
October update

I really want to work exclusively on this for a bit as it's my goal to complete it before the end of the year and I have three and a half pages left to do in only a couple of months so I really need to get cracking on it if I want to meet this goal. Also, it is for Lily and it would be nice to get it finished before the new arrival comes.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying your stitching. I will stick to my routine of reading and commenting on blogs on Tuesday. I like to fit it in as they are so inspiring to me and I keep getting lots of new ideas. Take care all. xx
