Misc roundup

I know I know...it's been a while since I've written.

We are getting a lot of stuff ready for Bug.

Here's a most recent picture of me and Bug.

I am (in this picture) 23 weeks and 5 days, please excuse how crappy I look, but...that's me on a Friday after work. Just kinda frumpy and gross. :)

I've been working on a couple projects as well.
I re-joined the Yahoo, MonthlyDishcloth group. I finally finished this months cloth yesterday. It took me FOREVER to figure out what it was. Chris and I were looking at it and he couldn't figure it out either. But I let it sit for about 10 minutes (yes..that's forever, I have issues with patient, this 10 months of pregnancy thing is something I'm completely over. I'm ready to meet Bug) and after not looking at it for a while, I figured it out—rose! (I enhanced the photo some to make the image pop)



I've also been working on and finished the Bunny soaker and hat set by Knit Picks...I don't have a picture (so unlike me), but it's done. I need to start the duck, but I have a couple other things to finish up first.

Like this blanket I started making, the pattern is based on a ballband dishcloth.



It's not even 1/2 way done...probably closer to 1/3, but it's not too bad.

I also got stuff together for Jenny, who I am so excited about because she is starting a completely new chapter in her life...I haven't heard much and hoe to hear something soon from her, but I can't imagine a better-more deserving- women for great things to happen too.
Anyway…she has been gracious enough to make Bug's quilt. So earlier this week I mailed her a box of this fabric, which she is going to turn into a quilt...have NO idea how she will do it, but she has the talent and I know it will be beautiful!



I purchased the new debut album for Court Yard Hounds.
Listen/see here.

Now, I am a huge Dixie Chicks fan, but I am not so much a fan of this album. I think it's just too slow for me. I know it has gotten great reviews, but...maybe I'm just not a big enough country fan, I don't know...I will give it a couple more listens, but if I had to make a decision right now, I'd return it and get something else.

Lastly, but certainly not least. I am a winner!
I won the Picky Sticky contest over at Vanessa's blog!
I never win anything, but this is so darn cute I couldn't stand not joining the contest.
We choose to get the Surprise Sunrise design (since we're team green to the end). Thanks a lot Vanessa!
If you're having a baby, or know someone who is...you should go check out her blog.

Well, that's it for now.
I have a full belly and I haven't done anything today but eat (and do dishes). so I guess I should go do something! :)

I have some banana's going bad so maybe I'll make some banana bread-that would be productive.
