I have been eyeballing scroll frames and stands.....

But I'm going to hold off on that a bit and rethink it once life with baby settles again. Just hoops for now :-)

I've always loves cross stitching and so happy I've been able to fit it back into my life lately but I do fear that will all go out the window again once this kiddo is born :-/. We shall see.

That dragon took me forever and I had similar thoughts throughout my working on it (what were you thinking!?!?). But I'm glad I kept pushing. Extremely satisfying and a lovely heirloom for T. I feel like if I was able to complete this, I can complete anything! :-)

On a happier note, look!  *points to avatar*  I finished it!!!  Now onto framing!  Just ordered the mat board a few min ago and should arrive next week.  Then need to shop for a frame and mount it (might be a bit tricky since the fabric was cut too short, I'll have to extend with scraps and hide under the mat).

Also, another happy note, next week is my last week at work!  (part time hours are done for the year).  So I'll have 3 blissful days for the following two weeks where the kiddo is at daycare and I can do whatever the hell I want!  :-D  (most likely Christmas shop, letters and baby prep......and NAPS!)

Yeah :-/ 

Could use the CC app but, meh, I just don't care for it as much.  The weight gain has actually been pretty much on track but I guess this will help even more.  My numbers were just over the limit so really with just a bit of diet control and blood glucose monitoring (4 times a day, let's talk about how much I love needles :-/) everything should be fine, even baby girl's size is pretty much right in the middle of the range she should be.  But gotta wean her off that sugar so she doesn't crash when she's on her own.

I guess my diet of toddler scraps and eating out because we keep travelling hasn't been the best.  Not to mention total lack of exercise in the past two years.

Really shouldn't be too surprising, I guess.  Dad has type 2 and my maternal grandmother had type 2 (and a few aunts and uncles), but still sucks.  And just adds worry not only to this pregnancy but my likelihood of developing type 2 :-/

I still haven't tackled the potty!  I no wanna!  ;-p

I'm doing okay, tired, but what else is new :-)  Getting into the "it's hard to put on my boots" phase.  Sciatica starting to kick in again which is never fun, especially when trying to pick up a 2 year old.

Also, unfortunately, I was diagnosed with GD last week :-/  So I'm dealing with that and all the worries that come with it. 

But all else is good, I'm measuring well, baby girl is moving and measuring well, blood pressure and everything else is spot on, so, focusing on that.

Hi everyone!  no costume for me this year.  I am lame....but mostly just tired :-p

T on the other hand is a very cute dino.  He's already gotten some use of it at some random events in the past week or so and he loves wearing the dino hat even randomly in the house he'll ask for it :-)

Unfortunately the kiddo woke up stuffy, coughing and the slightest fever today :-/  Not sure if we will make our trick or treating plans for tonight.  Bummer since this is the first year he's sort of getting the whole idea

Hi bobbi! Long time no see

I made spinach and artichoke chicken roulade last night and they were VERY satisfying!

Lazy morning today....or at least I wish it was. T is doing an excellent job of derailing my bumming plans :-p

thanks!!

nice seeing you in cc, btw :-)  not that I'm really here too much either but still nice

Ta Lily.

It hit me the other day when a CC pal relayed something that had happened and I felt bad I didn't know.

Figured I should pop in to keep up with the non FB folks. 

as handy and omnipresent FB is I still enjoy some cc.  especially with JEs it's good for more personal matters and brain dumping.

yeah that can happen, you really need to pay attention to the count.  not an easy hobby to do while watching a movie or something.  once you start a piece I think it gets easier because you'll have more stitches to use as a guide.

some people make guide stitches before starting a piece, especially large ones.  basically use thinner, lint free sewing thread to stitch the 10 x 10 blocks in the chart in a dark color and remove as you go.  wish I had known that trick before I started this piece, would have been helpful
