Cross stitch progress and what I’m actually stitching…

Today is D-Day, with the D in this case standing for dentist (well, technically I think I’m going to the orthodontist, but O-Day doesn’t work as well…) So today I shall hopefully find out if/when the evil wisdom teeth are to come out. Wish me luck!

So… cross stitch. I’ve been meaning to do the post for a while, but things kept getting in the way. But better late than never, right?
A few people asked me a while ago to put up a picture of what I’m supposed to be stitching so you could compare my version to the real thing. I couldn’t find the cover picture from my cross stitch kit, so I’ve had to steal a photo from elsewhere on the Internet for you. So, finally, here is what I’m trying to stitch:

And here’s what I’ve got so far:

Getting there...
Getting there…

Obviously I haven’t started the backstitch or anything yet, so there’s not much detail in mine, but I think you get the idea.
Also, I will be replacing the weight with the birth time as I don’t know the weight.

Baby is two weeks old now, so I really need to get on with it!!

Cross stitch update

We already have a winner for the guess the cross stitch competition (I will get your prize sent out to you this week Elaine!!), but I’m still not finished stitching and I needed a filler post. Not that I wouldn’t havy anything to write about, but I’m so tired right now I can barely string together a coherent sentence, never mind wax lyrical about my birthday party, for example (and yes, I seriously just used “wax lyrical” in a blog post. See what sleep deprivation does to me…)

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to put together a gallery of all my cross stitch pictures so you can see my progress right from the start:

And here’s where I’ve got to since the final photo above was taken:

When I find it, I’ll post a photo of the picture from the front of the kit for you so you can see what I’m actually supposed to be stitching. Stay tuned!

And by the way, the rabbit character you see sitting in the moon is called Somebunny to Love. I couldn’t make it up…
