What's Been Happening

Ok, I haven't posted in some time and for that I'm sorry.  I have been trying really hard to find employment.  I have a very promising lead as I have been requested to come back for a second interview at United Health Care!!  I'm excited :)

Mathai has started a new sport!!  He is still riding, but we added Taekwando to his schedule also, above is his first class.  We thought he did very well!!! It's funny that he looks sooooo stiff in the shoulders, he is trying so hard :)

I'm still working on the same hardanger piece, I'm kinda struggling with it, but I'll get it done.  Then I need to get back to the taj!!!  I think I'm going to have to break down and tell hubby about it, I won't have alone time in the afternoons anymore, so I'll have to work on it in the evening.

But for now, enjoy the video :)

Happy stitching until next time,

A Step in Life

I'm so excited, I'm going for my first interview since our son was born!  I was shortlisted for a one on one interview at a health insurance company, and I'm lucky enough that it is under 10 miles away :)

What does this change...only everything!  My stitching is going to be limited, which means I will have to break down and tell hubby about the Taj :(  I was really hoping to keep it a secret and give it to him next year for his birthday, but if I'm working, I'll never have time alone to work on it.

Hubby did promise help with the house work, which means that I'll be looking for someone to clean once a  week :)

Now, to the current project that I'm working on.  I started another small hardanger piece, I want to make sure that I have good technique before setting it aside for the cross stitch.  However, this one I'm struggling with.  I have had to frog it more then I have stitched...oh well, that is the way it is when you learn something new.

So, I'm going to finish here and get back to stitching/frogging...LOL...

Happy Stitching!!!

I'm having too much fun with this!!  

If I thought that cutting my first threads was a scary, cutting out the whole piece was almost more then I could handle...LOL...but I did it!!!  

I think I'm going to try something out of the Priscilla I go!!!

Ohhh...and here are some pics of the ornament :)

Before I cut it hands were shaking!!!

And here it is!!  

Until next time...

Happy Stitching!!!

My First Attempt at Hardanger

I'm sooooo excited!!  I know it's small and I can see some mistakes, but I did it!!!

I didn't use the correct threads, so I can't expect did go out yesterday and purchased some 22ct hardanger fabric and the correct threads, so I'm looking forward to trying a harder piece!!
