30 is the number of pounds I still need to lose.
Maybe this sounds sappy, but I am going to miss my doctors. Feeling sad that it is over. All those feelings bring about questions regarding my family's size. Somehow even though this pregnancy was horribly challenging, I question if she will be my last. Believe me, I remember the pain and the agony I went through with the delivery. I just wonder if I want one more child.
If you had asked me 3 and a 1/2 years ago, I would have said I was happy with my son. How things have changed. Now, at my age, I am contemplating having another. For now I have to get healthier and lose those 30 pounds.
The more I think about it, the more confused I get. If I were to give myself advice I would say, "Lose the 30 pounds, get healthier, enjoy your children and in 10 months see what happens."
Hopeful stitches to all .....

Have you ever purchased a magazine just for one chart that you just had to have?
Today I did that. Not because there was a chart that I just had to have but because there was an alphabet within a chart that I just could not do without. Mind you there were a lot of things that I did not like about the whole design, but the alphabet and the border did me in.

I dream of going again soon. It's the $$USD that is keeping me away. Paris calls everyday although I am thinking of Provence as well. When we go, we like to stay at a hotel near EuroDisney (or whatever Disney is calling it these days). That is because we love Disney and Parisian hotel prices are extremely expensive. When we stay near Disney (Marne La Vallee) it's a 4 minute bus ride to the train station and then it's straight to Paris. We enjoy the city so much. Next time, we want to stay longer. Let's see if Air France decides to have a really nice sale. This is not to say that Paris is France. No....I do understand that. It is just that Paris is the easiest city to reach from NYC (JFK-CDG) non-stop. I am sure that if I knew of another gorgeous area near Paris which was a little less expensive and touristy I would love to go and enjoy their French flair.
When we fly, it is our preference to start our vacation using that country's airline. It makes the experience most authentic to us. I particularly enjoy the Duty Free shopping best. There are a a few places that I wish to visit, France, of course, Barcelona, Koln, and Rome to start.
I have searched through many stitching patterns and I am spoiled for choice. I can't choose anything it seems because everything is so lovely. But, I will and I must for Easter is approaching very soon and my sweet lady needs a stitched gift.
French stitches to all.....

Brooklyn Bridge on rainy day
So here I am with all love of my French things more than renewed. Yes, I am still posting from bed.
If any of you play Farmville on Facebook, you will know that right now there is a French Provincal celebration going on and we can buy French items for our farms. Well, enough said, because I went and purchased many things. Now, I have a French Provincal Flair on part of my farm. You can see it by going to this link.
These days I am feeling a lot better. I think that finally my hard head has learned that walking must be kept to a bare minimum. My left leg is doing much better. There is less pain when I move it. (Remember that my daughter LOVED to sit on the nerves leading to that leg? Well, they are healing.... it takes a long time for those nerves to heal.)
I am off the blood pressure medicine and that is a huge relief. My blood pressure has gone back to normal and it is a happy event. Now, I just wait for everything else to heal. My back hopefully will get better first, since it took three attempts at a spinal block to get it in. OUCH! Yup, I feel that after walking 1/2 an hour.
Working on getting one trade in the mail and hopefully stitching an Easter item for Juliette. I am looking at Just Nan's "Dewdrop".

Surfing the net and Facebook are the only things I have done other than the new mom/baby things. Stitching blogs keep me company most of the time while my crops or fish grow on Facebook. Yup, that is my life these days.
Like most of you, I am waiting for Spring to come and for the snow to go away. Until that happens I still dream of getting back to stitching.
Winter stitches to all......

As for me, I am starting to get inspired to stitch again. I really didn't feel well while pregnant to stitch and knit. Right now I am on my way to being myself again.
I thank all my blog followers for sending me supportive emails all throughout my pregnancy. You are the best!!
Loving stitches to all....

I am so thrilled that it fits her so well. The green and blue striped hat makes her look like a Disney Fairy. Couldn't take a picture of her in it because she was getting a cranky look on her face. I can't help taking pictures of her she is so beautiful. Pictures do not do her justice.
Soon, I will start knitting and stitching again.
Beautiful stitches ......
