New Job!!!

I have some good news - I have a new job! I got sick of my bosses temper tantrums, so I gave my notice and start my new job on the 13th July. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Anyway back to the stitching - I have nearly finished (that's right nearly finished!) Holiday Cookies. Here is my progress:
Before-

After-


Not long now, hopefully I will have finished it by my next post. Other than that I haven't done any other stitching, mostly because I have been out after work or training. We have had a locum dentist at work and she is sooooo nice, therefore we have had a few trips to the pub after work! Unfortunately she was only there for 2 weeks and now my regular, soon to be ex-boss is back :(

I do however has some cute Ginga Ninja pictures-

He likes to "display" himself in front of the fire. lol!

Last night he decided to have a little nap inside Mum's tote bag.

It was such a nice day today so I decided to got for a mountain bike ride. Still quite cold but rugged up nice and warm.

Happy stitching!

Snow!

This week we got a big dump of snow, and the worst part was that it froze overnight and was sooo icy in the morning - not good for driving in...
Where the tracks in the the snow are, it was solid ice and very very slippery.


So that meant we I got a day of work when it was snowing so of course there was only one thing to do - stitch!

So far with Tuscany Town mandala I have been doing the little trees

After:

I have also picked up another WIP, Athena, Goddess of Wisdom by Mirabilia

So overall I had a very busy week, and got done quite a lot of stitching! Also my favourite cyclist Jakob Fuglsang (a.k.a Wonderboy) hehe, won the Tour of Luxembourg

Happy stitching!!!
