Sweet Sweet Babe Progress

I have a progress pic to show! I went stitching at JoAnn Nantz Needlework in Holiday yesterday. I dropped the kids off at my MIL's house and she told me to go stitch, so I did! :) It was so much fun just to sit and stitch. Everyone was so nice. They usually take a lunch break and get some food next door. Everyone seemed pretty laid back. Except one lady who kept saying funny things to me like "We don't normally talk about people," or "We don't normally share charts, but this one is out of print." Like I'm the chart sharing, talking about people police. I really could care less, but I guess she was just worried that I would think bad of them, or she was telling me that I shouldn't do that? I don't know. Other than that it was a lot of fun. I think I'll probably be taking the kids to my MIL's house every Saturday and go stitching, since dh doesn't have a weekend day off anymore. It works for both of us my MIL gets to see the kids and I get to stitch! :) Anyway, enough rambling here's my pic...

Sam Sarah Sweet Sweet Babe progress as of 1/6/06.

I decided to use 28 ct. Light Mocha Cashel - I seem to use that fabric a lot, but I like it. It's a good neutral color and a good replacement for hand-dyed fabric. Well, Jake is wanting me to lay by him and watch Spongebob, so I'll write later! :)

edited to add...

I turned around to lay by Jake and this is what I saw...

  1. Awwww what a sweetie - and the stitching looks good too!

    It's nice to find a really good friendly stitching group, I'd be lost without my local stitching friends :)

  2. Sweet Sweet Babe is looking great and so is YOUR sweet sweet babe.

  3. I can't wait to see more of this design, very pretty. I loved your comment about being the "police", that had me laughing. :) Ann.

  4. Aww what a lovely photo :o)

    You are so lucky having somewhere to go and stitch with others! Make the most of it and have fun.

  5. Great start on Sweet Baby and looks like you have one of your own. Happy Stitching, CJ

  6. Sounds like a perfect saturday all around! Can't wait to see more progress pics!

  7. What a cutie! Love the sampler, the colors are very pretty.

  8. Nicole, are you going to stitch in the baby's name and birth date? Or did you option to do it the other way? I started charting the name Louisa and the spacing was all off...just curious. It's a cute stitch and so is your little one.
