Waiting and Stitching

One good thing about sitting around waiting for the baby to come is the time it's given me to stitch.  I've been sitting on the couch with my feet up--doing nothing much else but stitching and watching TV.  Not so bad really.  I have already finished up another tea towel and wanted to share it. 

I chose to do this Sublime Stitching Julie West pattern again.  I really love this entire set but there's something about this pattern in particular that I just really like.  You can see the previous one I did here if you like.

The face has a tribal quality that I like.  You could stitch it up so many different ways.

I hope you have a wonderful week.  I'll just be going to work and waiting for baby.

Sweet Duckie with a Sweet Treat

Oh dear friends, I've just been waiting around until the baby makes his debut.  I have officially hit the uncomfortable no matter how I sit, stand or sleep phase.  One more week to go--I think I can do it. I have been stitching away though--which has been great.  I've been trying to tie up loose ends and of course I'm still working on the tea towels as they come in.  I've also got a couple of secret projects that I can't reveal until after the baby gets here so you'll just have to wait.  Until then. I have another tea towel addition to share with you!  This one is for Jill.  Go check out her fun blog, it's filled with such pretty pictures and she's a beautiful stitcher.

I really needed to stitch something cute because I've been feeling so blah, so looking through all my patterns this one caught my eye.  How cute is this little duck holding her perfect cake.  So sweet.  You can find the patterns here.

Just look at that adorable face.  I definitely felt better after stitching this pattern.  Just pure cuteness. 

I'm going to start on my next towel since I'm basically just waiting around for the big event.  Please send me some mojo to get this baby moving!
'Til next time!

Dessert of the Month: May and June

Well I got a little behind on the Desserts of the Month cross stitches, but I got caught up this past week!  So here they are--and somehow they just keep getting cuter!!

A very festive flan!

Super sweet bubble tea!

Progress so far. 
I still can't get over how adorable these patterns are.  Again, you can join in the fun here

In other news:  Colby and I are just playing the waiting game now.  I'm just over 37 weeks pregnant, so it could happen any day--or it could be another couple of weeks.  I can't wait to meet my little guy.  I think I'm finally at the point where I'm tired of being pregnant and just my bebe here!
