Another Long Overdue Post! Lots of News!

Sorry I have been missing in Action!

Thanks for the kind comments about the new look of my blog! i do like how it looks and I will be tweaking it still.

I will do my stitching news first then, some kinda big news!

OK so I have finished "Earth Goddess" and she turned out a treat.

"Earth Goddess" Completed June 1st 2012
"Earth" Up close
I'm so pleased that she is finished, now only 1 goddess to go and then the set is done.

I spent a couple of days working on "Harebell" but not much time as something happened that changed my stitching plans.

"Harebell" before
"Harebell" After
After my news I needed to pick up and work on till completion "Summer Fairy"

"Summer Fairy" Before
"Summer Fairy" 15th June 2012
So Hopefully this week, she will be just about done. I need to finish her asap.

I have also been doing some baking, My sister had a charity function and needed lots of mini cupcakes. Request granted

Mini Cupcakes
Mini Cupcake Helper
Then we had a 21st at work.

21st Cake
Cake top! yes that's crunchie bars and maltizers! Yum Yum!
So now that that's all done I have some News!

"The Gardener" and I are moving back to Christchurch! Its been on the cards for awhile but in the last week things have really moved fast. I put my CV out there and within 48hrs had a phone interview and then a Job offer! So we made some decisions and decided I will be moving in 7 weeks back home and then when "The Gardener" has finished and qualified as a landscape designer then they will move then, so we will be apart for around 12 weeks but that's OK. We also have been saving hard for a house and with me going back to dad's for awhile our saving should grow lots. The job offer was amazing and the good thing is that its still in a book store! i know it may not sound exciting but it is to us.

So with that being said, If I am a little slack in my updating then that is why!

I hope you all have had a fantastic couple of weeks. Your Stitching looks wonderful, and I'm sorry i don't comment more, but you all do wonderful work. Oh and Yes I am still working on a couple of secret projects but will update you more soon!

Until then!

Happy Stitching all!
