This is whats been keeping me busy…

This is the quilt I have been working on for one of the ladoes on the cross stitch board I belong to. Her beautiful 7 yr old son has been ill since he was a teeny kiddo and he is terminal…but no one really knows how long he has. I stitched 3 of the 28 cross stitch squares in the quilt. My son stitched one square. The other 24 squares were stitched by people all over the world. I know you can’t see the detail of the cross stitched squares but that is because the quilt is so big (as is, without the border, it is 53in wide by 70in long). I will end up setting up a page on my craft web site with close ups of the stitched squares and, if any of y’all are interested, I will post that link here.

Nothing really to update about my pregnancy…I’m here…I’m pregnant…and everything seems to be going well.

***OMG, I was just going through my archives and reading the comments and I came across this post…I just realized my next OB appt when I will probably get an u/s will be on the 18th and I will be almost 11 weeks…close enough to make me pause.

    I’ve been thinking of you a lot and checking in here since I can’t get to “the Board” regularly.

    Glad you’re “just here” and nothing major is going on right now pregnancy-wise. Ash has a sonogram next Friday (13th)-hope we get some details on gender and such.
