Angel of Cross Stitch

Well, another week of stitching on Angel of Cross Stitch. Got a little more done on the border. You can't see it because it's kind of "cream on cream", but the two lines within the flower border are all done. And I got some more of the turquoise and browns done along the top, and the upper right hand corner heart is done. Slowly but surely. I just looked back and realized htat the first progress picture I took of this project was in January 2008. So, I've passed the two year mark. Oh well, since I don't even know what I'm going to do with it, I guess it doesn't matter!

And...for those of you who knew I've been looking for either a new full time job or (ideally) a second part time job, I finally found one!!! It's been a year, almost exactly, and I found a job for three days a week, which was just what I needed. I'm working at my other job two days a week. So now I'm fully employed again! I start next Monday (the 8th). I'm really looking forward to it. I think that's part of why my stitching mojo has been a little lacking the last couple of weeks - I find I'm more productive when I'm busier.....lol

As always, thanks for checking out my blog, and thanks for all your comments!

So glad that you were able to find another job to complete your full week. They are so hard to come by these days. Your Angel is just beautiful.

Glad you were able to find a part time job. You are nearly finished with your Angel, just keep stitching and it will be finished soon.

Congratulations on the new job! They're so scarce, and you found TWO - I'm so glad for you. I'm loving the progress on Angel of Cross Stitch, and as someone keeps telling me about Summer at St. Simons, every little stitch gets you that much closer....
