February In Review

Saturday, February 28, 2009.
Wow this month went by so quickly. Before I get into the stitching update I do have good news to report. I am going back to work on Monday. I'm really happy. I'll be at a Call Center working as a Tech Support Rep (TSR) with Shaw Cable. The commute is going to be rough but I know I'll love this job. Julie who will be my boss was very excited that I accepted the position as we got along really well in our first Interview together. So it will be great. Plus I get a discount on my cable, internet and phone. I also get benefits right away and also 2 weeks vacation right away. I'm really happy about this. Now on to stitching.

This month saw me start off with Monopoly. I did finish Square number 2 which was Kentucky Square. I really enjoy stitching this as it's a fun pattern.

After this I did start the Kustom Kraft Mystery. I did not get my goal done to get page 1 done. I just couldn't get into it. I really do not know why.

After KK Mystery I went ahead to finish page 1 of Revelations. It took me 4 weeks to complete just one page. I was so glad to move off of that one. But it does look good and you can see Part of her Wing and Part of the Butterfly on page 2.

I then started Mystery XII by Chatelaine. I love working on this. It is coming along nicely. Here is part 1 finished and a Part of Part 2 that I have gotten done
Part 3 is out and So I'm going to start that soon as well.

After totally getting fustrated with the Ripples in Wild Horses I decided to walk away from it. So in it's place I'm putting Baby Ghosts. That is to be started in March as I'm going to do it as part of a contest. And for that contest I commited in doing 2 pages.

Then I turned my attention to Water and found that I'm not going to have enough fabric. That really made me mad as I already finished page 1. So I decided to scrap it again and start over. I am bound and determined to work on this so I started again on Page 37 which is the bottom left corner. There are only 1920 stitches not enough going on in this page to take a picture of it. So here is my colouring of the chart.

I also turned my attentions to playing Sims2. Who knew that game was addicting. I haven't played much lately as I'm trying to get laundry done so I have clothes for work.

So yesterday after finding out I had the job *YAYYYY* lol. I decided to treat myself with a work project so I bought a Lizzie Kate Double Flip it that says Dream and love, I also got the weeks and gast to do it with, the fabric to do it on and another Star Detailor as I couldn't find mine.

Also found out when I was at the mall that my contract was almost up so I signed another one and got an iphone. It is really cool. I have seen them before they came to Canada as a friend that I worked with at Best Buy had one.

My daughter also had her Grad photo's done. They turned out beautifully and it was really hard to pick. We decided on Image 3.
So my goals for March are
1. Finish New York *will do this at the Stitch in this Month*
2. Start Baby Ghosts for Contest in Mystic Stitch Group
3. Finish Part 2 and Start Part 3 on Chatelaine Mystery
4. Finish a Page in Water *Starting bottom left so I almost have Page 37 done*
5. Start Page 4 on FFA
6. Finish My travel Project
Well I guess I have talked your ear off so Happy Stitching in March.

I recently seen my youngest boys school pictures and said out loud at work... How did he get so old(everyone around me was laughing)... I guess I had not realized he actually looks that way. LOL
