Happy Dance # 12

I finished this cute design Sunday Morning. Its called Lavender Bag by Shirley Toogood. I stitched it on 28 count white opalescent Lugana using DMC's Color Variation floss. The design originally used pink and green floss, but I decided to change it up a bit. The design was featured in Cross Stitch Collection Issue # 115.

Right after I finished Lavender Bag, I decided to re-start Season's Tweetings by San Man Originals. I had originally started stitching it over one on 28 count Lugana until I remembered how much I HATE stitching over one. So I started it over on a piece of 22 count cream Aida using DMC floss. I like this so much better than over one. Its still small enough to just use 1 strand but my eyes are not killing me and my stitches lay so much better on Aida compared to when I attempt to do over one stitching.

I did just realize after scanning the picture that I will have to frog the last S in Season's as well as G and S in Tweetings. I'm off by a lot! More progress pics to come. :)

In baby news, I saw my OBGYN yesterday. I'm at 33 weeks and my fundal height is 34 cm. She wasn't all that worried about that. I also weigh 115 lbs. The doctor seems pleased that I didn't lose or gain weight since the last visit. She also thinks my glucose levels are okay. I asked for another ultrasound to check on the baby, but she said it's too early for another one... maybe at 36 or 37 weeks. I also asked if I was considered to have a high risk pregnancy because of the GD. She said no and that I was having a very healthy pregnancy so far. So its all happy happy. :)

I really like the Lavender Bag design!! Your colour changes are great.

Sending continuing positive vibes for an uneventful remainder of the pregnancy.

Ultrasounds are over-rated, especially if you have to come in to the hospital every couple of days to have one (been there, done that...)
