While I was there searching through some of the older charts I came across a couple of Goode Huswife charts.
They are "Dutch Strawberries" and "Nine Patch Cushion." I got the silks for "Dutch Strawberries." I can't wait to stitch this one - I think it's so pretty!
I also stopped by my LNS (Silk Road Needle Arts) yesterday. I thought I would treat myself to some new scissors and I also picked up a couple other things that somehow jumped into my hands.
Some pretty new Gingher scissors "Julia", a fat 1/4 of 32 ct. Examplar by Lakeside, and "A Quaker Pattern Book."
I do have some other news to share. Dh was offered a job with ICE as a Criminal Investigator (Special Agent). It's a dream job for him, but he has to go away for five months for training and then he will be stationed in Albany, Georgia. He actually applied in Dec. 2005! We weren't even sure we'd ever here from them! I've decided though that I just can't move again with the kids and all our family being here. I just couldn't do it to my mom, my brother (who is also my boss), my MIL. So I think we've decided to have me and the kids stay here with my mom and he'll be up there during the week and try to spend most weekends down here. It's not going to be easy, but I know we can make it work and it will be worth it in the long run. He will eventually be able to transfer to an office closer to here and will finally have a normal schedule (mon-fri). So anyway, I'm sad for me, but happy for him. If it doesn't work he can always come home and get his old job back. He's supposed to report for Training on June 18th, so that only gives us a few weeks to prepare for this! We are still talking about it, but I think he's pretty much decided that he's going to take the job. Well, not much else going on - I'm going to try to stitch a little bit. Write later!
