I have stitched as much as I can for now on my Coq Au Pins until more silk comes in from my LNS. I ran out of the Ecru SNC. Hopefully it will be in soon. In the meantime, I finished the 3rd block of the Red Thread Snapper (yes I’m still on my kick of WIPs rather than new starts!). I’ve moved on to the 4th block, as I’m technically almost 5 months behind now! Wouldn’t it be great to finish it today, and then I’d have another finish for July!

I know what my next start will be…and truly I need to start it soon! I will be stitching Sailing Home by Blackbird Designs. It’s a birth sampler that will be for Jack. I’ve switched just about everything in this design…fabric, fibers, you name it! When I do actually start I’ll show you some pics and the details.

I go back to work 2 weeks from today My husband and I have really been working on getting Jack’s room settled. It is painted, the crib has been reassembled and set up, as well as the changing table. We’ve pulled out the infant toys and clothes down from the attic and my next project is to go through the bags of infant “stuff” and determine what to reuse and what to throw away, sell, etc. I have my first baby shower on the 10th, and then another one on the 30th. The 2nd shower is at my house, so I’ve been really motivated to get the room looking good so that we can show it off a bit to the guests! Again, as things get looking better in there, I’ll post some pics!

Finally thanks to all who have viewed my blog and commented lately! I love visiting your blogs too, and I’m so thrilled that you took the time to see mine! I wish you all days full of fun and stitching!
