I haven’t posted in almost a month! I haven’t really been stitching and have been depressed about continued unemployment, winter, loneliness, relationship issues, etc.
However, I’m pretty happy right now because I GOT A JOB! It was through a former industry contact and I’m really excited about it. 🙂 I’m supposed to start Wednesday, but I’ve been sick sick sick, with what my Dr says is a virus, since last Tuesday and am wondering if I’m going to have to put off my start date by a few days. I have wicked sore throat, hurts to talk, turn my head, plus a lovely uncontrollable cough and as of this morning, an earache on top. I don’t remember the last time I felt this bad. I don’t think its just a common cold though because I don’t really have any sort of head congestion.
So the only stitching I’ve done since my last post was work on the Sweetheart Tree Pumpkin biscornu… Here’s my progress so far:
I’m just not feeling very inspired to work on this, but I kind of hate to put it away until its finished, especiallly since I know it won’t really take that long. What I really want to work on is the Lizzie Kate Noel Squared pattern I picked up at my last LNS trip. I already had the gingham fabric.
I figure for sure I’ll start it when I go to visit my parents for Christmas. I may also bring the Lizzie Kate Banner that I started back in the spring. I normally am not really a fan of LK (too simplistic), but I want something easy to stitch right now. I can’t even think about picking up a chatelaine!!
I’m kind of bummed about not putting up a tree this year. I’ll be gone from the 21st to the 28th so it seems a little pointless. 🙂 I have still yet to hang all of my 2009 Christmas Ornaments! Maybe next year….
