Valentine Swap--what I made

I'm finally getting around to posting what I made for Floresita for our little Valentine's swap.  I stitched up a couple things that I think are super cute.  

 This little "Be Mine" cross stitch that I turned into a magnet.  The pattern is from one of my thrift store finds--a collection of small charts for holidays.

 This sweet little rabbit stitched up some blue striped fabric.  I really like the contract between the stripes and the bright red thread.

Simple shape but big impact--at least I think so.  The pattern came from the Super Colossal Iron-on Transfer Book that I've mentioned here.  Another one of my awesome thrift store finds. 

In other news: The baby is so active!  He has these periods of movements throughout the day and he is really flipping around in there!  It's is such an amazing feeling--like a little hello from him to let me know he's in there.  I am 22 weeks now--over the half-way mark!  
Kitty Maggie was really sick this past week with a bad tummy.  We took our first-ever trip to the emergency vet.  I sure hope it's our last--that was so stressful. But she's feeling better now and back to her old self.

I guess that's about it for now--'til next time!

Aw, sweet stitching! ♥ I can't wait to be done with school so I can start doing swaps again.

Gah, I can't believe you are half way and I haven't seen you in soooo long! Hooray for flipping baby!
