Catching up!

I've been off the blogsphere quite a bit this year.  Sorry.  But here's a run down of what I've been up to recently.


I'm still seeking a full time teaching job.  I've had one interview so far and my local district has several positions open so I'm hoping to get one.  If not, I'll be subbing.  I also have been grading standardized tests and found out I'll be scoring leader for the next session.


My girls will both be full-time in school next year!  Finally!  My six year old passed Kindergarten reading on grade level!  That is incredible since she really didn't start talking at all until age 4 and didn't say a sentence until age 5.  We are also expecting another grandchild (a boy) so that's more ornaments to stitch.

My daughters are into Tsum Tsum (these adorable little Disney plushes).

The Five year old's collection

The Six year old's collection
We also have some Build a Bear Ponies which have recently joined us.  


I have had a few small finishes, but I am mainly working on Gathering Honey which I plan to enter into the fair in August.

A finished Long and Winding Road

A finished Dandy Wishes

A baby shower present
Work in Progress: Mini Twist from Stitchybox

My fair piece: Gathering Honey


My husband, who totally understand me, let me get stash at the LNS for Mother's Day.  I picked up an 11x11 QSnap and a needle keeper (which I love) as well as the fixings for the bird ornament out of last year's JCS Ornament issue, some Kreinik and silk for another WIP and the GA Chalk for the Winter Chalkboard.

    1. Thank you. I can't wait to have Gathering Honey finished and framed.

  2. Great stitching progress! I've been avoiding Tsum Tsums like the plaque because I don't need yet another Disney collection...but having said that, I do have a few. It's a good thing they don't carry the vinyl ones at Disney World (yet), because I would be more likely to buy those!

    1. I'm in trouble because the Monsters Inc ones are coming out and I want the Boo dressed as a monster. The five year old wants Sully. Guess there'll be a trip to the Disney store next week....

  3. Best of luck with your interview! My boyfriend has been seeking a contract teach position for 5+ years and we're crossing our fingers for this fall. Gathering Honey is lovely! I think I'm out of luck for our fairs this year, but I love seeing the finishes.:)


I love to hear from my followers! Let me know what you have to say.
