Cirque is back

The last time i worked on CdC seems to have been back in February!!! Oh my, how time flies! This is how it looked back then but i had the urge to pick it up again recently and here's how it now looksIts good to see some progress on a piece that will probably take me years! I already have a space on the living room wall earmarked for this so hopefully not too many years LOL Ive also worked a bit on Baby's sampleras im getting bigger and more tired i have more time to stitch. I finish work in 2 weeks now and i really can't wait! As of today i am 34weeks pregnant. I cant wait until the day now, im impatient!

I had a busy weekend. On Saturday i spent the day with my Gran which was nice. We just stayed in, ate, drank tea and did our crafts. Yesterday, my American friend Lori had an early thanksgiving lunch and it was so good!! DH was in Liverpoool at the weekend and sped home to get there in time LOL you'd think he was never fed proper food ;-) Lori is due her second baby in 3weeks! It'll be nice to have babies the same age and in the same class at school one day!

I have a day off today so i had a lie in this morning and plan on having a lazy day. I do need to do some cleaning though, but not just yet...

It won't be long now at all, and you will meet the little one. What a cute sampler you are making for Baby T.
Your CdC looks amazing. I love the thread color that you are using.

CdC's looking fantastic! And the baby sampler's looking good too. Wow - only 2 weeks until you're off work - lucky you - I go back to work in January!

Your CdC is looking great! I think the last time I picked mine up was February too - maybe this will inspire me!

They both look lovely, great progress.

I know by the time I reached 34 weeks I was desperate to finish work as well

Your baby sampler is coming on nicely - I'm working one from The Historical Sampler company as well (the nautical themed one)for my friends baby boy Arran who was born in July - hopefully i'll get if finished for her by the time he is one lol!

Perfect timing finishing up your work for Christmas and having everyone run around after you..as the last weeks came on I remember being absolutely scunnered by the time i had got to work let alone do anything there lol!

You enjoy a lazy day and let the cleaning wait! As a mom to four, I can honestly say that it really will wait (and wait, and wait - LOL!).

Lovely stitching!!

Great work on Cirque! Get those stitches in now, because once the little one is here you won't have free hands any more :-D

I hope you and baby are well. I have tagged you on my blog so if you do get time please join. If not - I will understand that the stork visiting your house leaves little time for anything else.
