Aunt Bekah

I'm going to be an Aunt again! Some of you may remember that my niece, Lucy passed away at 4 weeks old due to whooping cough. By the way, most kids are vaccinated for whooping cough but by the time they become adults, the vaccine wears off. It is then very easy to pass it to babies who haven't been vaccinated yet. So if you are around babies or plan to be, it would be wise to get your vaccines updated. That was my public service announcement for the day. ;)

Anyway, my sister is having another baby and this time it's a boy. I'm sad for Lucy but overjoyed for the new baby coming around Christmas time. :) So now all of my previous cross stitch projects are being put on hold so that I can get a birth announcement done.

Happy Dancing!

I finished the last block with a little alteration to make it say 2010 instead of 2009.

And here it is all finished! BoInk or "Book of Ink Circles" by Ink Circles stitched on "Champagne Cocktail Flair" Monaco dyed by Enchanted Fabrics. This was a really fun project. Hmm....Does this mean I can start something new? *Evil laugh* I will have to look over my stash and see what I may start next (not that I don't already have plenty of projects to to work on now).

Robin Hood Progress

I really love this piece. I have been working on other stuff too but I'm waiting to take photos of them when they get to a good stopping point. I'm currently trying to decide what to work on this week. I would love to go ahead and finish up BoInk.
