Yup, Lily insisted on holding her legs up infront of her face the entire time...talk about a contortionist! I think I'll be putting her in gymnastics as soon as she can walk...lmao...
Here are a few glimpses of her face:
It was still worth the experience though, as I got a DVD made up of the appointment and I can see Lily smiling, yawning and sticking her tongue out at times :)
I have a free followup appointment for another 3D u/s next Saturday when hopefully the baby will be more cooperative...lol...I was told to eat/drink something sweet before hand to try to get her more active...hahahaha...here's hoping!

It's so adorable, and very thoughtful. I love that it's a mother and baby. Can't wait to hang it once we move into our new apartment :)

As the picture I took doesn't really do the fabric justice, I've included a pic of the actual fabby colour as well.

My boyfriend and I have decided to name our little one Lily Florence and so I was thinking I'd stitch Nora Corbett's "Alphabet Fairy L" as well as her "Alphabet Fairy A" for my boyfriend's other daughter, Abigail. I liked this idea:
Although I find the "A" and "L" aren't quite as elaborate-looking as the "E" shown above.
*sigh* soooo many choices...lol...if anyone has any good ideas, please feel free to let me know ;)

On the stitching front, in between prepping for my best friend's wedding, and all the festivities that come along with it (ie. showers, bachelorette parties etc.) I've switched to working on HAED's "Summer" (artwork by Ruth Sanderson). My best friend had requested I stitch it up for her several years ago and I had made good headway on it until I realized that my fabric wasn't large enough. So I restarted in tent-stitch. I can't believe how much quicker these stitch up using tent-stitch instead of full crosses. I've got about half a page done and will post a pic as soon as I can.
I've been doing really well concentrating on finishing pieces I already have in my stash...and then a dear friend from the Crafty Coven "had" to post a link to this:
It's called Fairy Flower Garden and it's by Chatelaine. It's a little on the expensive side, but that's to be expected with Chatelaine patterns as the materials are so luxurious. Oh I CANNOT wait til payday to get this ordered...lol...so much for willpower!

Sorry for the lack of picture, but I no longer have reliable internet access at my apartment, so I haven't been able to upload a pic. But I promise one is coming!

In March, after my contract with the MNR ended, a fellow coworker and I took a week-long trip to the Dominican Republic. It was an amazing experience!
In May, myself and 4 girls all went to Las Vegas in celebration of my best friend's upcoming wedding. What a city!

However, looking back, I can safely say all these changes have been for the better :)
I hadn't stitched in almost a full year, but finally managed to pick up Alhambra a few weeks ago and make some significant headway. I'll be sure to post a picture soon.
I finished the Trellis baby sweater for my nephew, however it was too small for him by the time I completed it...lol...I really must learn to knit quicker.
Over Christmas I knitted an Irish Hiking scarf and toque for a friend (apologies for the blurriness):
I played around with "entrelac" and managed to knit one full scarf, and about half another:
Now that the warmer weather is here, I've put away my knitting and am more focused on stitching...I'm in the midst of moving, but hopefully within the next week or 2 I will have things organized and can get myself back into a rotation :)
