Morning Bloggers !
Its early and I’ve been up awhile but I have a reason which I’ll get to as part of my exciting news this post !
First off stitching or lack there of, my bug is gone on holidays !
I think its sitting in a lounger beside the sea relaxing and enjoying itself as it sure isn’t here with me !
I am supposed to be working on Hogwarts Crest to get it done in time for James birthday but that’s just not going to happen, sad but hey that’s sometimes how things go. I have cast on a beanie hat for him which he’s into wearing at the moment so he will be getting a handmade gift, just not the one originally planned.
This is where I am at with Hogwarts at the moment.

I also mentioned last week a piece I was designing myself from a quote from a movie. Well I can show you what I have done so far, its not quite finished and needs a little more added to it.
Its a quote from the 2005 movie of Pride and Prejudice (now you can’t be surprised by that ! )

I’ve stitched this on 28 ct flax with Belle Soie Cranberry and I’ve done it in a style to match in with my other pieces on my Pride and Prejudice wall. Not even this exciting piece is enough to tempt my bug back so I shall give it a holiday and hopefully it will come back plenty rested and ready to go again. In the meantime I am knitting and knitting lots so I shall have updates, hopefully not to boring.
Now I did mention something about exciting news didn’t I ! … mmm this year has been eventful to say the least as some of you know and then you get thrown a curve ball and it turns out to be most exciting. Sometimes things happen for a reason and because they are needed even if you don’t think you need them !
OH yes the news, I guess you want to know now don’t you…or maybe you don’t lol..
We are expecting a baby !
Wow what a surprise this was but a most wonderful surprise and blessing. All is good thankfully and we will continue to pray that it is. We have had our scan and we have seen the baby. No we won’t be finding out if we are having a boy or girl, we didn’t with the others so we are not going to change that we will wait for the surprise at the end. The whole house seems to be so much lighter and happier now in spirit than it has been so far this year ! The children are excited and it is quite infectious.
Oh yes due date, we have the coolest date ever ! I know babies don’t come on their expected date but I sure am going to enjoy saying this due date, baby is due on the 12/12/12…told you it was cool !
Ok I think that’s enough news for now lol, Sunday I’ll be back with a YOP project post and I do have lots for my week to show everyone, so check back in then, even if your not a knitter lol.
