Baby and Biscornu

Holy Moly 74 comments on my last post! That is amazing. Thank-you to everyone for the congratulations messages. It was great to hear from so many people. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and feeling much better, i havent been sick now for over a week. Still the occasional blinding headache though. To answer a few questions...i dont know if its a boy or girl and i dont know if we'll find out or not, can't decide! Also our surname is Thomas hence babyT.

Still no stitching. Hoping the urge will return. I ordered this the other day from The Historical Sampler Company that i will stitch for the baby's room
So i never did show a picture of my first ever biscornu!! I made this for Staci a few months ago as one of my prizes for my blogiversary contest. It took me quite a while to stitch and finish and it isnt perfect by any means, maybe i'll be quicker with my next one. I took a few pictures seeing as it was my first one LOL

Nice to hear you're feeling better.

The Historical Sampler Company has some really nice samplers - they have a nautical themed one that will be perfect for whenever we actually get around to having a child!

I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. I hope the urge to stitch returns soon and then you can stitch up a storm.

I love the baby sampler and your biscornu. It's an excellent finish for your first attempt.

I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better. 16 weeks along already, these are the best weeks, before you get too big and cumbersome to move about. I love the baby sampler you chose, it looks so sweet and charming for baby's new room!

What a wonderful baby sampler, it's adorable. I especially like the little panda at top, too cute. The little paw prints around the edges are a very sweet touch too. Your biscornu looks great as well, very nicely done. Glad your feeling better. Hopefully the headaches will be completely gone soon.
