A finish-FINALLY!!

Wow! It has taken me ALL month to finish this:

You'd think this was some great thing!! It is a tiny little 4 inch by 4 inch piece of stitching, and I am sooooo happy just to have it done!!!

So, here it is 3 days from being October, I am just barely finishing 1 of the three monthly smalls for...AUGUST!! I started The letter "P" for the alphabet sampler today, but wow! I feel like I am SOOOO far behind. I just had no motivation to stitch this month!!!

Oh well! I have worked a few hours on Howling at the Moon, and worked quite a bit on "Petal" my lamb piece, but most of what i'm working on with it is white on white, so you really can't see much of my actual work.

On the reading front, I have read 7 books, and am more than half way through #8 for the month, so I am pretty sure I will have that finished before the end of the month, so that is at least ONE goal I acheived for the month! =) I am SO frustrated with how tired this pregnancy is making me. the thing is, I'm exhausted during the day, but at night I sleep in 4 hour shifts, sleep 4 hours, awake about 4 hours, sleep for four more's so frustrating.

Anyway, thank you all for not giving up on me....I have been trying to get around and leave comments here and there when I am feeling up to it, but as for actually stitching and blogging myself....It just seems like such a task! but I will continue to look at all your great blogs and enjoy all the beautiful things you in blogland are creating, and I will stitch when I can, and blog when I can. That's all I can hope for for now!

Joyful stitching!!

And it's a very cute finish too! Pregnancy can really screw up all your normal biorhythms. Believe it or not things will return to normal although it might be later rather than sooner. Hang in there, it's all worth it!

Your checkered square looks great, Lana. Don't worry the stitching bug will return in time.

Take Care & Happy Stitching
Hugs, Sandy

Don't stress about not reaching your stitching targets, just enjoy your stitching when you feel like doing it. I had trouble sleeping when I was pregnant and my doctor recommended that I take Valerian. It is all natural and is the dried root of a plant, and it acts like a muscle relaxant. Speak to your doctor about it.

I agree with all the previous posts here. You'll be back to your normal self before too long. Just keep it up. Remember that the guy who lives with you loves you and that you can probably get him to do things for you that he normally wouldn't with you being pregnant and all. :)
