Abi's pregnancy is fast approaching its final few weeks, my baby girl has a lovely round tummy and a very wiggly baby boy inside. She's 36 weeks now and we are preparing for our new family member to hopefully arrive soon :) ... I may have freaked Abi out by telling her where I was at this same stage of my 4 pregnancies; at 36 weeks I'd already had Esther, Abi would be due in the next 3 days at just over 37 weeks, Mim was 1 day late and Jake...well for a Jacob she needs to add another 2 weeks, he had to be pulled out (quite literally!) at 42 weeks!!...hehehe...she was not impressed with the thought of waiting another 6 weeks for baby boy to arrive ..haha) She has one more week of work left before her maternity leave starts and I'm hoping we can then squeeze and afternoon-tea-room-visit in before we get all busy with our new baby boy :) Its a busy. busy time here!
On the sewing front, I've completed a few small cross-stitch projects, mostly forcing myself to finish several UFO's and WIP's ....I need to make room in my overflowing baskets! :)
This is a Blackbird Designs pattern ...
I was stitching this little piece on our flight to Madrid and whilst we were away, in the hotel on an evening. I made a teensy mistake and didn't read the chart properly whilst on the airplane (I'm blaming the dim lighting!) and so I accidentally stitched all the wording in the same colour (I thought I had tooo many threads! hahaha) By the time I realized what I had done I was 1/2 way thru so instead of frogging everything I opted to continue and miss off the bottom border...It's ok-ish, not the best and the colours are a bit muted because of my mistake, but I'll stitch it again properly another time :)

We've had a birthday for Abi, and choosing which cake she'd like proved a teensy bit taxing...
It wouldn't be right not to have any sneaky shopping purchases to show ....
I now need to sit down and organise all my photos from Madrid so that I can share and make sure I forever-remember that wonderful adventure...I was very nervous about going all the way to Madrid, especially leaving my Angels amidst all their health concerns at the moment. But we had such a special time with Jacob, and the girls didn't have one seizure the whole 3 days we were away...saved them all for when we got home :( Cest la vie...We go thru ups and downs like this every now and then with their Epilepsy, hopefully we'll get them sorted soon and they'll feel better and the nasty seizures will abate somewhat...fingers crossed :)
Back soon with lots of photos from Madrid!
