Weekend Stitching

I was so thankful for the weekend, but happy Monday!
Bilbo is currently at my parents’, but don’t let that fool you: he’s had plenty of xstitch time with my mom. She sent me this pic yesterday:

  She’s working on little pictures for my niece to put into a shadow box tray. So creative. 😉

I got a tiny bit of stitching done. Slowly…very slowly this project is taking shape. I have a little over a month to finish. -Nail biting-
 I can’t wait to sit down and catch up on everyone’s updates and get inspired!

Happy Stitching!

New Beginnings

 I’ve been M.I.A. lately because I’ve been too busy… and too busy to cross stitch. But it’s a good busy- I got hired at a local university library. I’m very thankful for this opportunity that finally came around. It’s a relief after over six months of being unemployed AND it’s in a field I want to have a career in. There is a catch though- one I don’t mind (yet, so far, I don’t know)- it is a second shift plus weekend position. I’m excited though; something new.

The shots below were taken over a week ago. I’m stitching this for my dad for his birthday in August, which because of my new blessing of a job will be harder to finish than I thought. Hopefully I be able to work on it and relax this weekend. But for now, I’m going to FINALLY sit down (and probably fall asleep).

Happy stitching!
