Well, another 1st weekend has passed and I can honestly say that I sat and stitched most of the weekend away. Lana and I have been SAL-ing on Coming Home for the Holidays all year long. Her idea for this SAL was to get her back into stitching on hers. Mine was to finish it before my dad passed. Well, we all know that didn’t happen, but it will be done before Christmas!
Here is what Coming Home looked like after my first few stitches were placed:
Here is the halfway point:
Here is where I last left things:
It’s amazing how far I have come on this piece. It feels good that I am ever drawing closer to a finish. I have found that I am running out of some of the colors (a handful at best), so I will be contacting DMC to see about getting some replacement floss.
WOW! This piece is just gorgeous! I plan to do a few more in this collection.
In the job front ~ things are looking more and more like privatization will happen. I am also in the process of looking for a different, better paying job. I had a telephone interview last Friday and am in the top 3 as I have an in-person interview tomorrow morning. I really hope the 3rd time is a charm (this makes the 3rd time in 6 years I have interviewed for this particular job).
