I haven't been on here in over a year, so much has changed. I got a new job which I just recently got laid off from lol, I met my now fiancee Ron, we're having a baby girl, and we just recently moved to Nashua, NH. Throughout the past year I have been stitching but not consistently up until recently when I got laid off. Working six days a week, over time everyday was a little much while being pregnant, I was too tired to do anything else. I went on maternity leave two weeks ago and while on leave my job laid me off. I wasn't really planning on going back so I don't feel too badly. So now I'm just waiting out the last couple weeks until my due date, August 20th, keeping busy with stitching things for the baby's room. I have a couple finishes and a couple things I am in the process of working on now for her. Here are the finishes waiting to be framed.
A Popcorn Kit - Blueberry by Vervaco

Princess Parade - Country Cottage Needleworks

And here are the projects I am working on now. The baby's birth sampler which I found in a magazine a few years ago and saved. And another stitch by Country Cottage Needleworks, Mermaids, that is the 2nd of three that I am making to be a kind of set to go together. The third is Ballerinas which I have all kitted up ready to go when Mermaids is done.
