Welcome to 2008

I can't believe how long it's been since I last updated! Well, the last few months in short. We finally settled into our new house but we're still having problems with the heating and some other little bits. My dad recovered from his operations but still has complications and has to go back in in another 2 weeks for another op. He's back on the transplant list again now though so maybe another kidney will turn up soon. Apart from that life has been pretty much the same old, same old.

I guess the most important news is I found out last week that I'm pregnant! Of course we're thrilled after having tried for so long. I had my first antenatal appointment yesterday. I'll be 11 weeks along on Monday and I'm due on August 6th. I've been feeling quite nauseous and tired and have problems with certain smells but am otherwise ok. I can't wait 'til I start showing lol!
On the stitching side of life...  I finally got my last SS gift back from the framers and sent that off before Christmas. No pics today as I'm at my mum in laws but hopefully I'll get round to it soon. I've been doing quite a bit of stitching lately. I've been feeling quite nauseaous and tired so when I get home from work I've just been crashing out in my stitching chair. I'm currently working on Lavender & Lace 'The Wedding' (still...) and Sunshine Line Baby Girl when I'm not up to the fineness of L&L. I also did a bit of work on Mirabilia 'Mother's Arms' this week. I'm working on a card this week though as I'm away visiting family. Oh and I also finished and finally made up my set of poppy coasters for my friend. The original coasters I had for them were useless cos the backs kept coming out so I ordered some different ones last week and they were much better. I think that's about it really. Hopefully I'll get some pics up next time I update. Happy stitching for 2008 everyone!
