elephants!

I'm huge now and work is just impossible. My back always feels like its breaking and it's just difficult to move around. So i've started my stay at home for the next 6 weeks before i deliver and go on maternity.

I'm lucky that my OBGYN has asked me to rest at home, and supplied me with the necessary MC for it, and I also saved up 21 days of leave from last year that I can take at leisure now. So what am i going to be up to for the next 6 weeks you say?

Oh I have some ideas up my sleeve. I've been cross-stitching and also crocheting- amigurami.



This is a cross-stitch of a book character called Humphrey. I hope to frame it and put it up in the twin's nursery when our place is ready. I hope to get some Humphrey books too, so that they know who Humphrey is.



And this is an elephant i crocheted! The friend helped teach me, and I went crazy with the crochet needles. This was my first try, using some of her leftover yarn. I've gotten some blue and purple yarn, and i'm going to crochet another 2 for the twins. I won't let them play with it when they're born of course, as i'm afraid the eyes will fall out, but hope to also decorate the nursery with them! =)

Oh, don't ask me why i decided to make elephants! Beats me!
