First of all, I find it sort of ironic that my last post was about my 30th birthday and today is, in fact, my half-birthday.
If you read my personal blog then you know I'm expecting our second little kiddo (a boy!) in just a few weeks now. If you remember my pregnancy with my first then you know that I developed an aversion to crafting. This time around I wouldn't necessarily say that I developed an aversion to crafting, but I certainly didn't have any extra energy to spare in those first few months! So that along with a general lack of motivation and...well, happy half-birthday to me!
I thought I would start off by showing a little cross-stitch project for my great-niece (Yes, I'm a great-aunt and a Great Aunt!) I have loved making these for my nieces and nephews through the years and now I get to start on the great-variety as well. The kit is from Bucilla and I think it is absolutely adorable.
(By the way, if you are an avid cross-sticher like I am, then check out 1-2-3 Stitch. This is a web-based company but is local to where I live. They offer locals the ability to just go pick up there orders from the outlet so you don't have to pay shipping and handling. I opted to do this for another project I ordered, but when I found that my time was more valuable than cost, I sent them an email asking if they could just change my order to a delivery and charge me shipping/handling. They not only changed my order per my request but said, "Don't worry about paying extra, will just send it at no cost." Awesome!)
I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. I am currently working on one for my oldest daughter. I have another one for my great-nephew born in December. And of course there is my second little kiddo. That gives me 8 weeks to get them all done.
