Well, my conscience is cleared up for the time being- I went for a job interview at the UN yesterday and I think it went pretty well, so today I'm rewarding myself with a WHOLE day of stitching absolutely guilt free!
Cool
Bliss! It can't last long though...

Thanks for you good luck wish BarBaraPrz! It must have worked because I got the job!!!!!! I'm so happy! It's a translator/editor position with the United Nations Institute of Training and Research. I'm just thrilled- I've been wanting to get into IOs and NGOs for ages!

So, it's ANOTHER whole day of stitching for me today (sorry Fabala!), and I start on Monday. Something tells me that I won't be doing any stitching for a while once I start work!

Seriously, congrats! I am just so jealous... I work full time and my husband and I just bought a house... so I have been WAY too busy to do any stitching. Sad

Norcross, Georgia... just northeast of Atlanta. It has a big fenced in yard for my dogs, and lots of rooms with good natural light for stitching... I even claimed one of the bedrooms for my own personal Craft Room.

Now, if I only had time to enjoy that room... <sigh>

Well, you're closer to my work - I'm in Duluth, but live up in Flowery Branch. And I work full time, have two boys on travel soccer teams, plus do beaded jewelry and have a serious reading habit. There are some weeks when I don't get to touch a needle at all (SQ designs aren't very travel-friendly Sad ).

Fabala, do you ever frequent the Needlework House on Satellite? I stop in when I'm looking to see non-DMC floss in person, and am trying to get Mary to expand her lines.

I thought you were local, Rife...

No, I havent ever been there - will have to check it out. I have been to a couple of places around here but they've not impressed me. Mostly I stick to SQ for patterns, JoAnn and Michael's for DMC and some fabric/notions... and I've ordered Charles Craft fabric online direct from them.

I'll have to check the place out, I prefer to give a local small buisness my money, but have trouble finding places that carry what I am looking for. Sad
