I'm a little...

 
I could finish the phrase "I'm a little.."
so many words..
 
I'm a little ... PREGNANT..
as I head into the 23rd week of this
pregnancy..I've just started
to feel our little bean move..
I've got to say it's AMAZING...
 
I'm a little...MINDLESS
as I realize that I've got a
block to finish...
It's like someone keeps cancelling my
actions as I walk into a room..
 
I'm a little...TIRED..
with this little bean starting
to move more..
I can't say I slept a
whole lot last night..
 
But I will say..
 
I'm a little...
 
I used my favorite batiks.
I think I maybe the Batik Queen..
 
I did stitch in the 'I'm a little.. '
wanted to do it in white
but..
did you know Walmart doesn't carry embroidery floss anymore?!?
& Hobby Lobby is closed on Sundays??
I didn't want to drive all over town looking
for white embroidery floss..
so.. I had to settle for pink..
 
I want to thank Madam Samm and Marlene for hosting
these wonderful blog hops..
I'm very thankful for both of them..
 
Monday February 25th
I want to thank you for stopping
& checking us out..
(but, not in a creepy way)
 
Gizmo & Rosie say hi too..
they have been on most days..
Curled up on my lap..
these days they seem not to go far..
like they know another little
playmate is on his way...
 
 
Happy Stitches..

  4. Love your batik lady. Great job! The instructor of the first hand applique class I took many years ago insisted we use all batiks because it's a little harder to hide your stitches. (Never finished that project by the way and have it listed in my UFO's page)... but anyway since then I have been hooked on batiks, love them!

  5. Oh Laura Ann, I love your lady, who will only resemble you for a very short time with your "yummy mummy" tummy. I wish you all the very best of health for the rest of your pregnancy, and hope you stay as positive and funny as you are now. And I love the fabric you've used for the hair too :-)

  18. How adorable! I also love batiks! The fact that you are able to that while "a little pregnant" shows that you still have at least a little mind left! (They don't call it pregnancy brain for nothing!) Great job!

  19. :( that your Walmart doesn't carry floss anymore...Ours moved it to be on the shelf near the florals...strange location....as far away from the sewing department as possible. Your batiks are lovely.

  20. Love your piece!! I do love your dress!! I am grammy to a pair of puppies just like yours. Good little dogs.

  21. Rosemary B here: OH HOW EXCITING! 23 weeks! Is this your first?
    I pray that your pregnancy continues on a smooth and comfy path. So, you are going to have a June/July baby (too early to count here on the east coast, jeez I just rolled out of bed) I am very excited. I love your sweet adorable pups. they look good as gold and they love their mum!

    Okay, I love batiks too. I am coveting and hoarding. I love the red you have there.... I want that. I saw it in a project at a quilt shop and they did not have anymore..... I have two other places I can hunt though.
    I adore your creation, you can fix that hand sewing later if you are not happy with the pink, but it looks so marvelous. I hope you get some sleep tonight. I remember those days very very well, and I am old now and my daughters are in their mid 20's now.
    yes... the batiks turned out lovely!
    Thank you so much for sharing today. Now, be sure to have a nap later

  22. Congratulations of the pending baby---so I can see why all those words would fit you well.

    I was unhappy too when my Walmart stopped carrying floss a few years back---since I live close, embroider a lot, etc BUT perhaps there is hope?? Mine just started carrying it again! Perhaps yours will as well. Hobby Lobby is closed on Sundays, just like Chic-Fil-A, because of the religious views of ownership but that doesn't help when you need floss. The pink works.

    I love the batiks you chose as you love them and you said you are the batik queen so that really would represent YOU.... or your ME. Oh you know what I mean!

  33. Laura Anne- Congratulations on your upcoming arrival. My niece is expecting a boy also, the first week of March, so my sister is flying to St. Louis this week to help her out. I love batiks as well. I made the Craftsy BOM 2012 with batiks with black and am adding to it, making it for an art teacher friend of mine who just bought a new house. I've been wanted to get him to learn to sew because he's such a talented painter, that I'm sure he's be a fantastic quilt/fabric designer. Best wishes to you and your "bundle of joy." Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Beautiful job with the batiks. With some slight modifications (namely making her younger) she could actually look pregnant. Congrats, by the way! Babies are such fun! And they give you such a wonderful excuse for the mindlessness and tiredness! Play that card all you want!

  52. I love you batiks. I can't get enough of them although I don't make as many things with them as I could. I spent many nights sleeping in a recliner when I was pregnant. It was the only way I could be comfortable.

  62. I really, really like the fabric you picked for your hair. I don't think I've ever bought a batik. I think the only one I have is a fat quarter I won at a guild meeting. Seeing you use your lovely batiks is certainly making me see the great depth to batiks. I think I see some batiks in my future. I know folks who applique certainly like them. You are very blessed and it sounds as if your pregnancy is progressing great even though you are experiencing some of the normal discomforts. My two pregnancies and deliveries were each different. I was one of the fortunate or unfortunate gals who had very short labors. I was at the hospital less than 3 hours with my first one and less than 30 minutes with my second one and I didn't want to go when I did go with her. Glad the doctor was there and wanted to check me when he did. I hope you continue to participate in the blog hops and inspire us.
