I am now 38 weeks and 4 days. It’s a matter of waiting now, and doing what I can until baby girl decides to make her arrival. I can’t believe I’m at the end of my pregnancy!! It has been such an intense 9 months! Every pregnant woman says that I’m sure ;). But really, with the severe all-day morning sickness (that lasted 5.5 months) and monitoring my gestational diabetes since week 9, it’s been intense. It’s at least nice to learn what, as a woman, I am capable of withstanding. And if course, I still have to get through labor!! Ha. Cross that bridge when I come to it, I suppose. Until then, pictures of finished projects!!
The set is done! Hat, socks and mitts for baby!
Baby quilt (almost) done!
And our little Christmas tree!
Hopefully I will have a few more things done before baby’s arrival! Happy crafting!! And in case baby arrives and I can’t make it here in time, Happy Holidays!
Finished the baby socks yesterday. They could have been done many days ago. However, in a moment of thoughtlessness I snipped the yarn (of the second sock) to start the Kitchener stitch only to realize I hadn’t done the toe!!! I was so upset I put it all away for several days. Finally, I fixed the problem yesterday, and so they are done!
They look a little wonky, but are very stretchy so hopefully they will do their job nicely.
And since I still have some yarn left I am beginning a pair of baby mittens, that I hope I will be able to complete. I hope so, then baby girl will have her hat, socks and mitten set made by mama.
36 weeks weeks!!!! I have been knitting up a few things in these last few weeks for baby girl. Currently working on socks. Socks, but not booties. It has been impossible to find the right pattern. So I have used a combination of patterns and ideas and I think I’m getting what I want. But they are looking small. Are they too small?
Over two years later, I’m back!! Still married, pregnant and back in Mexico. Long story. I’ll focus on the present for the time being….
So, A few days shy of being 7 months pregnant! Despite all the horrible all-day “morning sickness” and the gestational diabetes management, it is now just starting to feel real. Baby girl is happy (?) and kicking/moving all the time, a constant reminder that she will be here soon.
A slew of baby items (blankets and burping cloths) have already been sewn, knitted and crocheted for the little one. But here is a picture of my latest finished project…
As the title very obviously states, this past weekend (sunday 10th, actually) my husband and I celebrated our first year of being married!! We had a great weekend at the park with the dogs, having wine and champagne with close friends and treating ourselves to delicious foods…. yum!
We didn’t actually PLAN anything, it all just really worked out by itself and it was fantastic. Really I think we were mostly in shock that a whole year passed so quickly. I mean, really, I can still hear the music on my wedding night and can still taste the champagne/passion fruit drinks I had all night… hmmmm it was such a great day…
With all the good time we had this weekend, I didn’t think to take any snapshots of us lovebirds, BUT I did get some pretty fun pics of the girls…
this is my favorite, wrestling for the oh so desired tree branch…
And as for most of monday, I spent the day doing household chores and daydreaming about crafting (of the knitting, crocheting and sewing variety)..
oh and there was some window shopping on Pinterest too
I found this, and really, it gives doilies an entirely new look doesn’t it?? I think I will be trying this soon..
LOVE. IT. What a great and simple idea!! I think I will try this soon…

So, it’s been forever. I know. I have been readjusting to Mexico and housewife duties. And as days and weeks have just flown by I realized there is no better time than now to jump back into crafting and blogging about it. Even if I have no FO’s at the moment.
So I leave you with a short post, some pictures of WIP’s and a question… What are you all working on these days? As you will see I’ve been doing some crocheting, cross stitching (love the simplicity of it), and embroidering. Also some knitting but no pictures of it at the moment.
Happy crafting everyone!!
