A baby on the way

Yes, I'm going to be a grammie :D. Sooooo excited. And DD knows it's going to be a boy. So of course, I have started right in on a baby sampler. Another thing I'm trying to keep a secret from her. Although I've been stitching it while she visits with me but she hasn't asked what I'm stitching on. A couple of weeks ago I showed her everything I'm working on (except OUAT), so I think she figures it's something she's already seen.
So I've chosen this piece from the Historical Sampler Company, I'm stitching it on Lakeside Linen's "Luna", 36 count. It's charted for DMC but I'm doing it all in hand-dyed threads.
Blogger seems to be having "issues". I can't get the wording and pictures to sit the way I want them to. So I'll leave the post like this.

The baby sampler looks big. As for your dd not paying attention, my dad was the same way, lol. I worked on a gift for him and almost finished it right in front of him. When it was done, framed, and given, I told him I had been working on it right in front of him, and he just laughed.
