Baby Blankets

When DH and I started this cycle back in July, I went to a neighborhood craft store with my gift card from Christmas in hand and purchased a cross stitch project. Not just any cross stitch, but a baby blanket. I had been working on it off and on over the last 2 months (more off than on) and now realized that I need to get busy on it if I plan on using it! So to help me along, I figured I would post pics of the project so everyone can harp on me when I don't get anything done on it!

Here is where we are starting today (click to enlarge):

I also made my first maternity purchase today. I ordered a Bell.a Band. My jeans are beginning to be too snug to wear comfortably buttoned...so I'm hoping this will afford me a few more months in my clothes.

How cute! You've made good progress for working more off than on. You'll have it completed in no time!

That is going to be a cute blanket. I loved the band. I wore it after delivery for a while too.

I have some catching up to do...

First, thanks for all your support lately. I am glad your spotting scare is over. You have a good "blob" for not making you sick yet. Hopefully, you will will fall in the percent that escape morning sickness!

And I love that you are putting your positive energy, all your dreams, into a blanket. How wonderful it will be to see the final product with your little one wrapped inside!
