Castle Sampler update

Yes, another update. I finished the first figure at the bottom. Finally, some content to stitch! The chart wasn't too hard to follow. Now for the three figures in the middle. That should be interesting.

I also finished off a small piece for the birthday club exchange. I still need to do the finishing of the larger piece, which I'd like to get done this week.

Baby: Matt's off this week, and it's so nice to have some help with Logan. Matt pinched a nerve in his shoulder, probably from all the lifting of the baby, so he can't do much of the feeding. Still, amusing the boy is sometimes the hardest part. I did get my first honest-to-goodness smile from Logan yesterday. He was on his play mat and looked at me. Awwww!

TV shows: We've been watching Stargate Atlantis. I didn't get into this as much when it aired because I preferred SG-1, but I'm really enjoying watching it again.

You're speeding along with that Castle Sampler and it's looking gorgeous! I so love the TW's but as I only stitch on aida, I can't do most of them, which is a shame.

It is such a wonderful feeling when you get those first few smiles and you KNOW they're real, and for you! Wait til he's holding his arms up for you to pick him up. That is another cool one. It's like you really feel wanted and loved because they WANT you to hold them.

Castle Sampler is looking great!

And I'm thrilled that Logan's given you your very own smile! I hope you and Matt enjoy the time together with him!

How exciting! Toothless baby smiles are the best!

This piece is amazing!

Congrats on getting your first smile; it usually comes just when you need it--like when you're wondering why you get up at all hours to deal with a demanding little person who doesn't seem to appreciate it(or maybe that was just my kiddos) ;)

Your sampler is looking great I cannot believe you get so much stitching time in with a baby in the house. You're my hero :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
