right I am back and cups are ready and there are celebration cookies today :)
so I shall tell you my good news first ..... I have got a new job :) three years to the day of leaving my last post I will start my new one on Monday :) doing admin for a health care company about 20 mins drive from the mouse house ..... I shall be working full time Mon to Friday which will impact on the old stitching for a few weeks until I get back into the routine of everything .... but hopefully my needles will be back smoking soon ...lol
So it means as well that I will be able to afford to go to Harrogate this year after all ...lol I told them I had to have the Friday off hehehehe .
Soooo on to the hermitting ..... well I must have known ..lol as I managed to stitch the rest of "I sew'd my heart" by Heartstringsamplery including charting my name and this years date too :) I stitched it on cream 36 count evenweave with the recommended threads and I love it .... and to make it even better DH and I called into an antiques shop I have wanted to go into for years and bought two wicker baskets and one is just perfect to hang this piece from (photo later ..lol) I am going to do hemstitch around the piece to finish it off :) that will be my next task after do some other finishing for Kath ..lol
June's birthday gift will be finished and hopefully in the post to her by Thursday so will show you photo next week :)
some of you will be pleased there is no pictures of goodies heheheh ... unfortunately although I have got my new cooker ... I have yet to bake some ...lol.....
The postie was good to me also this week as yesterday the Travelling Pattern from Lynda has arrived the aptly named"The Busy needle" by LHN soooo I have pulled the threads for it last night as not got any of the ones it recommends .... mmmmm typical, but I quite like the ones I have chosen to stitch it with on 28 count raw linen .... sooo hopefully I will get it done asap :)
and then whoop whoop my charts arrived safely from my win on FB from the lovely Belinda of Blue Ribbon Designs fame :) she had two "just because" give away's and I was one of the lucky ones *VBG ...... I was sat with the DH in the garden yesterday with a cuppa discussing my interview that day and my offer and I said ooooo I will be able to afford to get some more threads and he replied yes you will be like all the other worker stitcher's out there loads of stash and no time to stitch hahahahah.... I said really???? .. just watch this space ..lol
