Second finish of the year

Winnie the Pooh Calender
Sunday evening, I finished the last backstitch on Tigger (March). With that finished I have my second finish of the year! Here's a detail of the last two months and a pic of the whole calender.



Pooh and Friends is a counted cross-stitch kit from Vervaco: 2575/70.910 stitched on a 14 ct Aïda. Finished size: 25 x45 cm (14" x 18").

RAK
Dawn (no blogger) gifted me with a pattern and some floss! This is a totally new kind of floss for me, so anyone have ideas how I can use, please tell :)


Pregnancy update
Monday, it turned it I already have some contractions, since I'm only 32 weeks along, that's way to early :( So now I'm on meds to stop the contractions, and I need to rest as much as possible. Please tell the baby it needs to wait to come into the world!

Congrats on your finish. It turned out really cute. :) Nice RAK, too. Sending you good wishes that the baby stays in the oven a bit longer. :)

Congrats on your second finish, it is so cute. Nice RAK as well, looks like the threads are needlepoint threads but they are variegated and whatever pattern you do you would make one stitch at a time.

Congrats! It's such a cute finish.

I do hope that the baby hangs on a bit longer. Will be thinking of you.

Congrats on your finish! Don't get excited, stay calm. Don't walk, lay down and rest, if you get bored by doing nothing you can stitch on the Egyptian Empire for a very short time and keep resting.

I had this problem with my first pregnancy and somehow me and the baby managed to due date. Good luck to you and tell your baby to sleep some more.

The floss is great for highlighting or back stitching on fabrics with a slightly larger weave (more open weave) than aida 14.
You might consider using it for crewel work instead of counted work.

That is a lovely finish. Hope the baby stays where it is until the due date.

I hope your baby cooks a little bit longer. Kick your feet up and stitch, lol!
