Mr. Robin flys to Washington

Is it just me or has January flown by?!? I have been a busy little bee, working away on some things for my baby boy (oh and yeah--we found out it's a boy--eeek!) I decided to go with a woodland forest friends theme for the his little part of the world. Think raccoons, foxes, mushrooms etc. I think it's going to be super cute. Unfortunately we don't have the space to give him a full-on nursery, but he will have part of the spare room for now--he'll just have to share with the computer and my craft stuff. I'm pretty sure he won't mind--or really even know what's going on. But before I show you what I've been working on for the baby, I wanted to share this piece I stitched up for my sister's birthday. I've been wanting to do these patterns for so long now. They are the Ryan Berkeley transfers from Sublime Stitching.

  I think Mr. Robin looks very regal in his suit don't you? I really want him to have a name like Sir Earl Pennyweather.

What a fun design.  Now I really want to stitch up the others.  Miss Kitty is definitely calling my name----meow.  On another note I made it to the Sublime Stitching blog!  So exciting! 

Baby news: I'm 18 weeks now and the little bugger is squirming around!  We are working away on names--who knew it would be so hard to come up with something!

Mr Earl is indeed regal!

Baby names - Just remember, you can never make everyone happy. And it's gonna be hard to top Spacklena! ;)
