What a busy couple of weeks

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 weeks since I’ve posted. I definitely didn’t mean for it to take so long. I guess with starting a new job and everything, I lost track of time. Boy, did the 2 weeks off go by quickly though.

I can’t really say how the new job is because all we did the first 6 days was go through orientation. I’m so glad that it orientation is over though.

Well, here are some progress pictures from the last 2 weeks. Not a ton of progress, but some.

This is SB Stripes. I’ve been wanting to do a piece of there’s for a while now. This took me 2 weekends to finish. I think I’m going to buy the mats from Jill Rensel for the finishes.

020This is my progress on my Prairie Schooler piece. I’m really loving this. Unfortunately, I haven’t worked on my Plum Street Still Waters SAL w/ Jean for over a week. I am working on it today though, so I’ll hopefully show a picture in a couple of days.

Our dryer died today. Of course, I was working on the weekly laundry, so I have our loft stair railing covered with laundry. ARGH!!! Hopefully, we’ll have a new one soon.

Well, I hope everyone has a great week.

Your stitching is great - love that SB piece. The PS design is coming along nicely too.

Don't you hate it when those appliances stop working!

Life has a way of getting in the way of stitching! I suppose as long as it's fun it's ok!

I have a new laptop too and quite like it. It's my first and it took me awhile to get used to it!

Sorry about the dryer though!

Wonderful finish on the Shepherd's Bush design!

Great progress on the PS too!

Best of luck with the new job! Argh! The dryer always quits when you really need it!

Good to hear that orientation went smoothly and is completed, a good accomplishment of a new job. I love your SB piece and the PS you are working on! Sorry to hear about the dryer...but isn't that the way life goes, just when you think you will get a little break and relax something always seems to change. Oh, well, life wouldn't be interesting...
Take care!
