The Egyptian Empire: tempel Aboe Simbel + Horus


A week and a half ago, the doctor gave me the OK to be a bit more 'active' again, so I've been sitting up more again, and taking mini-walks. The sitting up gave me the possibility to take up the stitching of the Egyptian Empire again. Remember where I left of?

I've been working on the Temple Aboe Simbel first (the statues behind King Tut) and then the statue Horus next to it. Here's a pic of the stitched area and one of the whole work. Next on the agenda is 'palmzuil'.

a bigger version of the pic can be found here webshots album

I've hit the 37 weeks pregnancy mark! So from now, the baby is allowed to come from the doctor, I personally hope baby stays where it is for about 2 more weeks (or 3). It's wierd, but it's like I really need those 2 weeks mentally. And I have a tour of the maternity ward planned on the 24th (second try, the first appointment couldn't go through because I was put on rest) and I really would like to be able to make that appointment, I think I'd be more relaxed through the delivery if I have that preparation. We'll see have everything goes... as long as baby is healthy!

Great progress... je bent flink opgeschoten.
Fijn dat je weer meer mag doen, blijf het rustig aan en hoe langer de baby blijft zitten hoe beter lijkt mij
