A little weenie dog

Man oh man what a week it's been.  I got hit the with norovirus and was out for several days.  No fun my friends. Needless to say I didn't much accomplished this week.  Yesterday was the first day I felt I was somewhat back to normal.  I wanted to stitch something but really didn't want to tackle that sampler I've been working on, but wanted to do something small that I could finish in a day.  I remembered a bib I got in a pile of stuff and it was the perfect thing to get me feeling better.  I decided to do the little weenie dog from February 2011 issue of CrossStitcher magazine.  I've been wanting to do one of these patterns forever and finally found the perfect thing to stitch one onto.


 I got slightly off-center because I didn't measure correctly so I just added the words 'WOOF' and another little flower.  It works. 

 Such a cute little thing for the baby.  It felt really great to be stitching again after my little hiatus.

In other news: Colby and I did go see "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" in Durham which was full of awesome.  I haven't laughed like that in a long time---even my baby was twirling around in my belly!  
 Hopefully he won't remember all the things he heard that night though (wink).  You can listen to the podcast that was recorded that night here if you'd like to hear the shenanigans that went on that night.  

Also a few weekends ago, we took a trip up to the Roanoke area as a last little trip before the baby gets here.  

We had a lovely time and took a drive up to the mountains and visited two farms that are in Colby's family.  While at the farm we happened upon a cow giving birth.  I must say, it was one of the most amazing things I've seen in a long while.  Talk about perfect timing.  The trip was peaceful and just what we needed.

I guess this was about 25 weeks.  I'm definitely bigger now and no hiding that bump! 

Til next time!

March: Dessert of the Month

Hey folks!  I've been a little absent this past week, it's just been one of those weeks.  I did want to share the March Dessert of the Month cross stitch though--cuz it's super cute!

You can still join in the fun at The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery!
