Examplar IV again

As I mentioned in my last post Examplar IV is now the piece keeping me busy during my days here at the hospital. At left is what it looked like when DH brought it in to me.

The good news is that this piece has lots of detail in it to keep me from getting bored. The bad news is that this means it moves pretty slowly, so there's not much to blog about! In the last few days, I've finished the spiral trellis stitch in the pink flowers next to the butterfly, and I've made some decent progress on the diagonal trellis area on the bottom right. The centers of these flowers are spiral trellis, too!********************************
Pregnancy ticker: 32 weeks, 6 days.
As of this morning's ultrasound, BJ is up to 4 pounds, 4 ounces! We're still hanging in there!

Hi Jeanne,

This is a beautiful project and I enjoy seeing your progress! Little by little, you'll have it done before you know it! :-)

I'm here in Windy Meadow cheering both you and BJ on!!!

Have I told you yet that after the birth of our first child, our daughter, my DH was so tired and excited he took home a lot of our stuff including my shoes! I spent the rest of the day walking around in those paper operating shoes.

I'm not too sure what he would bring in if I asked him to bring my stitching into the hospital... Boggles the mind! :-)

Beautiful project! It is good to keep your mind occupied, blogging isn't your priority now. Sounds as if your pregnancy is progressing well, you're almost there.

Jeanne, I'm happy and thankful to see the progress report on BJ.

I admire your work on the spiral trellis flowers and flower centers. The whole piece has so many interesting things to look at. I love what appears to me to be blackwork ladyshippers a little to the right and under the bird.

Best wishes,
