Gifts For Chiloe and Me

Remember how I have said I don't like spring because of the weather? About 4:00 AM a bad storm reared its ugly head and caused part of a tree to fall on the roof over our bedroom. Thankfully, no damage to the house!

However, my day was brightened by Dee. She made me this gorgeous dishcloth! I am totally fascinated with knitting. I can crochet but I have never learned how to knit. Thank you so much Dee!

The last of my blogoversary gifts found it's home. I made this little fob for Chiloe. The design is a freebie from Pam Kellogg called Harvest Pumpkin. I really like how the pumpkin turned out. I have plans to make one for me eventually. :)

Here is the back of the fob.

As for my pregnancy, everything is going great so far. I had a nutrition appointment this week and I was happy with my weight gain but they weren't. I have gained 4 ounces! With the other 3 kids by this time I had lost about 8 pounds because of morning sickness. I got the lecture that I need to gain more weight. Ideally they would like to see a pound a week from now on. Yeah right! For me gaining weight is not an easy thing to do. It's not because I don't eat...I LOVE to eat!

As of today I am 12 weeks along....believe me reaching this point has eased a LOT of my fears about something going wrong.

Have a great weekend!

Not gaining weight: remind me something !!! I gained only 10 lbs for Steb and I was eating A LOT. lol Actually I gained weight after Steb was born because I kept eating like when I was pregnant. I also feared the first 3 months ... couldn't help it ...

Thanks again for the beautiful fob: I really love looking at it. It's so perfect. Was it hard to sew?

I'm glad nothing happen to your house (in Texas, I always hated the tornado season: freaked me out ...)

I'd be glad to lend you a few of my extra pounds for your weigh-in next time. As a matter of fact, you can even KEEP them!!! I'd be GLAD to help.

Glad you liked the washcloth. I truly enjoyed making it for you.

The pumpkin is adorable. I love anything that has to do with October! We have LOTS of pumpkin things around here in the fall!

Gee, I wish I had that kind of weight problem... :-) I've still got about 15 pounds on me from being pregnant with my 18-month-old, not to mention those 5 pounds that I couldn't lose after my now-5-year-old. *sigh*

I love that little pumpkin fob you made for Chiloe! It's so cute!

So pleased no damage was done to your house.

Love the dishcloth! So bright and cheerful.

Your fob for Chiloe is lovely.

I'll send you some of my weight if you like!

Congratulations on your earlier Snowman Stocking finish, it turned out gorgeous. I love all the little animals that are on it, they are so cute. Your pumpkin fob turned out very sweet too, what a lovely design, perfect for a fob.

The dishcloth will be wonderful to use. I recently learned to knit and have made two and I love how they feel. What a treat for Dee to send you one. Glad to hear the pregnancy is going well. Good luck with gaining the weight, sure wish I could just give you some of mine as others have suggested.
