February TUSAL

It's TUSAL time! Here's my reclaimed pasta jar next to my newest ultrasound photo (taken at 35 weeks). Stubborn kid wouldn't let us get a proper shot. You can see most of his face, though his arm is up over his chin. He sleeps like his daddy!

Wipocalypse - Update #2

I've been trying my hardest to stitch away at the "Baby Monkey Birth Announcement". I want to get it finished and gifted before I start the birth announcement project for my own baby, who's due in a little over a month. 

As you can see, I've made quite a bit of progress on the second sock monkey. Like his partner, he's a time consuming pain in the butt due to constant color changes. I can't wait until he's finished! The rest of the project is mostly words, borders, large blocks of a single color, and random floating bi-color shapes, so that should stitch fairly quickly. The monkey-head safety pins in the upper corners will take a bit of time, but shouldn't be nearly as difficult as another full-bodied monkey.
