projects, projects

damn migraine back today. it started last night and was really bad, luckily it has eased a bit today. i was feeling well enough to finally tackle my kitchen floor which was totally disgusting. also cleaned the bathroom, did some dishes, washed some large mirrored closet doors. that's enough for me now, though, i'm pooped.

can you believe i'm officially 21 weeks along today? i'm feeling the baby move lots more recently. it's still kind of surreal, even with the way my tummy is expanding so quickly.
i've started working on a blanket for the new baby. i made one for little buddy, and i wanted this baby to have one too. i did a stamped cross stitch crib cover. it took me just over 100 hours to finish little buddy's, and i think the new baby's will take longer. it is a little more complicated. i hope these blankets are something that they can keep forever as a reminder of how much i love them--a lot of time, work, and love went into them.
this is what little buddy's looks like:
and this is what the new baby's will look like once i finish it:

i put a flannel back on little buddy's and i will on this one, too. it's going to be cute when it's finished. these pictures are from the manufacturer's website, i don't have pics of little buddy's on this computer. once i get the princess blanket finished i'll post pics of the two of them.

Thank you for your post on MMB!!
I have been looking for you because Motherboard told me about you and was looking for the wrong thing.

I can't express how happy I am to find you. I am a survivor also. I am so looking forward to reading your writings and getting to know you.

You are a blessing.
