I'm Back!!

I have to apologise for such an extended absence from blogging as I have not been feeling well. I can now announce that I am 15 weeks pregnant with our second child. For the last eight weeks or so I have been suffering with terrible morning sickness. Most days have been a struggle to get out of bed and I am sure that my lovely daughter and DH are feeling quite neglected. When I was carrying my daughter the morning sickness was not too bad as I only felt sick first thing in the morning, but this time round it seems to be a 24 hour thing. I had my 12 week ultrasound two weeks ago and everything seems to be going well. My OB said that I should be finally coming to the end of the morning sickness and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. YEAH!!!

As for all my stitching, well, I am sad to say that I have not touched it since the beginning of February. I only just managed to get my Fair and Square blocks completed and the basting done on my LHN Round Robin. I would like to show you some photos of my work and the items I have received.

Here are the blocks I completed for Fair and Square.

Design: Autumn Blackbird (freebie found here)
Designer: Waxing Moon Designs
Thread: DMC Threads
Fabric: 32ct Antique White Linen

Here are the Fair and Square blocks I received from Kathy. She was really generous and sent me a Lavender and Lace chart Angel of the Sea, a calendar and some American sweets called Tootsies.

I also received my biscornu exchange item from Marion in the Netherlands. It's really beautiful, especially with the ceramic beads in the corners.

I was able to post off my LHN RR piece, but unfortunately I didn't get a chance to do the border. Here is what it looks like with all the basting finally completed.

Finally I would like to say that you to all my exchange people and RR people who have been ever so patient with my lateness in completing my projects. I would also like to thank everyone who has enquired of my whereabouts the last couple of months. It's great to know that I have not been forgotton. Now all I need to do is get my sewing mojo back and get back into the swing of things.

PS. I have been reading everyone's blog, but have not been leaving comments. I will be getting back into this soon, I promise.
