Tatting for State Fair
I tatted a meandering edge to finish this doily. It needs a good blocking, but I'll get around to that when I get around to it.
This pregnancy has slowed me WAAAAAYYYY down but I am sure that is probably something I needed in my life anyway.
So the good news is that I did NOT end up in the hospital again this week. Halllleighluuujah!
I go in for weekly evaluations, ultra sounds, measurements, etc, with my fetal medicine team...and yes they are a wonder team. I really do feel like I am in good hands.
Since my cervix is doing such a good job of not getting shorter they upgraded me from bed rest to "light activity". It is just a trial for this week to see what happens, but I am hoping this means a positive upward trend.
I don't even know what "light activity" means. To me it means I can bust a move back to the studio....but very "lightly" of course.
I was also able to do a little laundry, dishes, and even prepare dinner for DH. I almost feel like a normal human again.
My belly is getting huge. It really does literally look like I am sporting a basket ball in there. Soooo funny!
I'll see if I can get some belly pics posted soon.
So I found out that the theme for our State Fair is "A Barnyard Ball". That means I get the chance to bust out Tatted Animals, Tatting Farm Animals, maybe some items from New Critters On the Block, Animal Bookmarks, A Tatted Zoo, and most likely a pattern or two from our beloved Jane Eborall.
Is this exciting or what?!?!? I have so many ideas!
