Good News!

Hello everyone!

I have great news to share!! I have my job back!!

HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I nearly did this in my principal's office when I got the news!! Imagine if I did?!?!  So happy to be working with the same kids next year and creating new and exciting activities for them to learn!! Such a relief I tell you!!!

Thank you all so much for your prayers and positive thoughts you sent my way.  All of you are so amazing and I wish I could reach out and hug, jump for joy, celebrate with everyone! Your support means so much to me.  

A quick stitching update.  Two finishes to share with you.  One finish I stitched last summer from the May, 2007 GOS magazine, but put aside to rest awhile in my finishing drawer.  Instead of stitching this weekend, I figured I should finish it up in time for summer.  I still have a number of others that need finishing which I hope to do this weekend.  I stitched it with Nina's Thread "Old Berry" on some scrap of linen.





I thought it would look nice next to my little Midsummer's Nights Dream teapot my Nana gave to me. But I also like it in my basket of smalls that desperately needs filling!!

The other finish I actually completed a few weeks ago but I couldn't show it on my blog as it was a gift for a dear friend of mine, who also stitches and looks at my blog! The design is a freebie from Ink Circles, one of her favourite designers, and I stitched it with Caron Watercolours in Tumeric.  I cannot seem to find the link to the freebie.  I will have to dig around for it and update this post later.



I really enjoyed making this box for her and am glad she loves her gift. 

Take care everyone and don't forget to enter my 300 follower giveaway by June 2nd!!

Hugs,


Anne

Maggee said...

WooHoo! Congrats on keeping the job! wonderful, wonderful news! Also I have not checked out the reader alternates, except for Bloglovin, and my first impression was that they couldn't care less about bloggers, so off the list! I will check out Feedly! Thanks! Love the two finishes. I have the Summer one (actually the whole set) languishing in my stash--yours is an inspiration to get it done! And Tracy's Ink Circle patterns are so very intricate and always call for exquisite bright colors, don't you think? Hugs!
