Goodies!

Thank you so much to all of you for your happy wishes on my pregnancy! You are all so sweet! We are very excited :) Dawn asked how far along I am. Based on the first day of my last monthly period I am 7 weeks along and due on Feb 2nd - which is actually my birthday! We will have our first visit with the OB on the 30th of June.

Here is a picture of Cuddle Bug the other night reading to his new baby doll (his practice baby brother/sister) whom he named "Baby Billy." He's so cute!


I got some wonderful goodies in the mail the other day! I got this incredible collection of charts (and 2 kits) from Jacque over at "My Needle's Delight!" Thank you Jacque! You are so kind!! I love each and every design! Some of these charts are designs/designers that I haven't heard of before which is really exciting for me as a beginner :) I don't deserve such a wonderful gift but I will treasure it and will enjoy every stitch I make on these designs - they are from such a lovely blogger!


I also got an order from Handcrafts Online. I ordered some linen, a finishing kit for LHN's "Peace" thread pack and some CC threads I needed.


I really need to get to some serious stitching now with all the fun new goodies I have!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and productive week! I am hoping my next post will show some kind of stitching progress!! I need to get my tin done for the Monthly Finishing Challenge. I haven't even started that.

Thanks for reading and for all your kind comments and well wishes!

What a sweet, sweet picture of your son!! That will be one to treasure through the years.

Great selection of new stash. But with a collection like this and as many projects as you've finished now, I think we're going to have to reclassify your "beginner cross stitcher" status to "cross stitcher extraordinaire"!!

Cuddle Bug looks very intent on reading that book, he is gorgeous.
That was a nice package to receive.

Jacque is awesome, what a sweetie! What great mail. Your little guy is adorable :-).

Tanya said...

Oh that Mosey n Me design is a classic - I stitched that ages ago - love it!!!

Your little one is precious!!!

Tanya, who is excited you are due 2/2 since Zack was born 2/1 :)

Aaaawww - Baby Billy and your DS are so cute together! So glad that everything is going well.

Enjoy that sumptuous stash!

Ooh - I missed the initial announcement. I'm so happy for you, Kim! All that fatigue and nausea will be worth it when CB's new sibling comes home. It sounds to me like he is angling for a brother by the way he named the doll. Many hugs to you! And how neat to be the subject of so many RAKs. If anyone deserves it, it's you. And to think you were worried about blogging...

Hi Kim - haven't seen a post from you for a bit (not that I'm stalking you) - just hoping you are feeling okay and getting some nice stitching done. Miss you! Michele

Dawn said...

That is cool that you are due on your birthday! I'm due on mine, too.:)

I hope all is going well!

Tanya said...

Kim,
Hope all is well. I haven't seen you online lately but then the first months of being preggers are so tiring and well, I was sick for the first four! Hope you are doing well; I'm thinking of you and sending good thoughts.
