A New Life

Seems like so much has happened since I last posted. I graduated from nursing school and went straight into the Intensive Care Unit. Worked there for nearly a year and since my husband retired from the air force, we moved back home several states away! I got a new job, now working as a nurse in the Emergency Department, my kids are nearly done with high school, so of course they hated to move so far away, but it's done now. We have a lovely house with 10 acres. Hubby still hasn't found a job after he retired, but he wants to take his time and find something that he'll love doing. We'll see what happens. My honey do list is pretty long and he better love doing that so those things can get checked off! HAHA! My schedule is nights, so it's hard to flip back to days and I haven't touched my stitching in so long. I hate it! I need to just pick it up one night and get going on it, but I work again tomorrow night and then I'll be one for 3 nights, off 1, and on another. Yuck! Sucks the life out of me because I'm so exhausted when I get home! Looks like webshots kicked me out since I didn't log in for awhile. I suppose I lost all my pics :(

Progress on the wizard

Well, I've been slowly but surely making progress on the wizard. Here he was as shown in the last post:

Here he is after stitching on him for a couple of weeks (forgive the crumpled fabby):
The wizard

The boys and I headed off to CO for a vacation though and I haven't touched him since before we left. I need a new audiobook to listen to so I can work on him some more!!

Trick or Treat Fairy done!

Well, last night just before 11pm, I finally finished up Nora Corbett's Trick or Treat fairy from the Sep 2008 CS&N magazine.

Trick or Treat Fairy by Nora Corbett

It feels like an accomplishment to have 2 pieces done so close together! So now I have to decide if I pick up yet another thing in my WIP pile or throw something new in. You wouldn't think that'd be such a tough decision! I wouldn't mind picking up my wizard and working on him more:

He probably wouldn't be too hard to finish! But then again, something new is calling my name! I'm thinking maybe one of those all one color Who Knew? patterns with the mermaids. Of course if I work on something in my WIP pile, I wouldn't have to ponder fabric and thread! Maybe I'll work on that cute Halloween pillow I started long ago. It wouldn't take long to finish up!
