A New Fairy

Yesterday I started a new design. :) I bought this chart sometime back and I decided it was time to stitch it up. It is called Bumble Fairy from Jeanette Crew Designs. I'm stitching it 2 over 2 on some 32 count linen. It feels great to stitch over 2! I can only handle so much over 1 stitching before I go crazy.

It is hard to believe that Megan turned 8 months old a few days ago. Pretty soon we will have to start planning for her 1st birthday. She is growing so fast..okay maybe not her hair! I can't wait till her hair gets long enough that I can put something other than a headband to let people know she is a girl. Now matter how much girly pink things I put on her I still get asked if she is a boy or a girl.

She has finally started saying her first word(s).....Da-da and Num-Num. She definitely thinks Num-Num means food! If she sees you with food she immediately sticks her tongue out and says "Num-Num".....this of course if followed by the shrillest scream you have ever heard if you don't share with her! I swear this child has an opera voice! She also knows what Da-Da means because soon as Mike gets home from work that is all she says until he comes to play with her. Megan is working on is usually only heard when she is extremely upset or frustrated and we were blessed with a really happy baby so I haven't heard it a lot.....yet.

The older ones are loving be on Summer Break and I have to say I am, too. I love not having to rush around in the mornings to get everyone out the door. Krissy is keeping up her running this summer. She has been talking about trying out for Cross Country this fall. We will see, it all depends on if she can maintain her grades. I am a firm believer that they have to maintain at least a C for any of the kids to participate in extra circular activities. That includes the progress reports. Krissy and Allie are both on Honor Roll so I really don't have to worry about them.....Mac on the other hand barely holds on to the C's he gets. I know C's aren't bad but I know he is capable of so much more and so does his teachers.

I am off to go stitch some more on Bumble Fairy.:) Have a great night!

Fun new start, and I love your earlier finish of Chocolate, very fun. Great find on the floss too. I never seem to find fun stuff like that at the sales I get to.
