An Update!

I cannot believe I've been gone for over a month! How did that happen?! I swear I laid down for a nap one day and just woke up this afternoon :)

I have been struggling with "pregnancy fatigue" for weeks and weeks. I feel like I'm dragging through each and every day. I'm mostly just taking lots of naps and vegetating. I wish I could say I had lots of stitching to show for myself, but the truth is I don't. I've been completely unproductive in every way - including hobbies. But I am the queen of the afternoon snooze and that has to count for something! And the good news is we have a beautiful little apple seed to show for it! This is our first peak at Cuddle Bug's new sibling - whom we lovingly refer to as "baby." We got it on June 30th at our first prenatal appointment. We confirmed the gestational age (9 weeks gestation in the ultrasound) and we are definitely due on February 2nd - my (and my sister's) 26th birthday!

In stitching news, about a month ago I got a wonderful gift from the sweet, sweet BeckySC - the gorgeous Joyful Summer chart from Country Cottage Needleworks! This will be my next big project and I'm thinking it will be a perfect gift for my sister, if she wants it of course, for her new apartment. Thank you times a million to Becky for such a lovely chart - you are so generous!

And finally - look what I got from Sally! She has awarded me the Brilliante Weblog Award! Thank you so much Sally! I'm so flattered!! And now I have to choose 7 other blogs I would like to give the award to - yikes! I will make that a top priority!!

I also want to say thank you to everyone who commented on my blog and who emailed to check in on me. Who would have ever guessed I would have actually been missed?! You are all so sweet and wonderful! You made me feel so special :)
