Reindeer Games

As you can see above, I received my Reindeer Games exchange from Lisa on Friday. Lisa said that its an American folk arts design of a reindeer dated from 1666 and she finished it as a no sew cube. It's lovely! She also included great gifts - a reindeer ornie, a reindeer tea towel, threads and cute christmas buttons. I love everything Lisa, thanks so much! I just hope the exchange i sent arrives okay now!

I also reached another milestone with CDC. Ive finished 2 pages now and started the third! Im right back into this again although i need to put it aside to finish Janice's RR which ive embarassingly had far too long.
In pregnany news, i have one month to go and i've finished work!! Woooo Hooooo! Cant tell you how good it feels. Im going in this week but just for a lunch and i plan to attend the Christmas night out but that's hardly work!! So good to have that stress away. I am 36 weeks pregnant now and here's the most recent bump shot taken last week at my baby shower

We picked up our pram yesterday (i love the pram we got) and DH had the job of putting it together. My job was to oversee.....obviously LOL. What can i say? I was tired!!!

Glad you had such fun at your shower, and that's wonderful that you'll be able to take a break from work now. What a fun exchange Reindeer was, and CdC is looking so pretty.

Carol said...

Hi Cheryl! I cannot find your email! I received your exchange today - thank you! It is so sweet!

Annemarie said...

Aww, it looks like you're taking rgeat care of yourself and the wee one, Cheryl. Take all the rest you can get. Before you know it, your critter will be there, and it might just happen sooner rather than later. I was busy planning another five weeks of selfish stitching when my munchkin made his appearance at 38 weeks!
Your CDC is amazing!

Annemarie said...

37 weeks. D'oh. It's amazing I do counted cross stitch.

Michele said...

Love the exchange .. that is a lovely reindeer :) great going on CdC .. keep up the great work!

Squazi said...

Your looking very well. CdC is coming along beautifully. Did your DH need an engineering degree to put your pram together, I know my DH did for ours, lol. I don't know why they have to be so complicated to put together. I am glad to see you had the most important job. I think I was the supervisor for many jobs around our home in the last few weeks.
