Tuesday Update

A little update on this cold, icy Tuesday... I made up this little hanging pillow for a friend that loves to garden. The stitching took me 2 nights over the weekend and about an hour this morning to finish it into the pillow. I love this design by The Sampler Girl. I am going to stitch this again this week for another friend who loves to garden and just closed on a new home (and big backyard for gardening)!
I've also made a LITTLE progress on my last house in my LHN (you can see where I was in my post below). I have not had a lot of stitching time between a power outage last Tuesday, a snow day for my kids last Wed and no school yesterday.

Also, I've been spending a lot of time organizing/cleaning my house as I was supposed to start a new job today (after 8 years of being a stay-at-home mom)! However, due to the weather, my kids had a 2 hour delay and when I called my new employers to tell them I'd be in at 11 am rather than 9 they told me to just start tomorrow instead. They seem like a great group of people and I'm looking forward to starting tomorrow. I've been very blessed to stay home all these years and now I feel very blessed to have this wonderful part-time (26 hrs a week) opportunity land in my lap in perfect timing.
Thank you for visiting!
