I have also come to the conclusion that it is time to find another job. I have been saying it for months, even spread around a few resumes, but did not really push for getting out of my current position. The situation with the "ex" made it too stressful to contemplate added stress of switching jobs. As well, because of my RRSP contribution from my company, I was stuck there until June. Once we were well and truely separated, I couldn't afford to go to any other job unless it was a like wage. Now, I just want out. I can not take the politics of the upper and lower management. I can not take the unreasonable and outrageous antics of the customers. There is nothing more stressfully then trying to get some 80 year with a thick accent who has never even touched a computer before to do a simple task like clicking on the Start button. Ah well, hopefully I will be out of there soon.

All well, on to better things and the other thing that is keeping me sane!! My newest obsession and love of my life is Heaven and Earth Designs. I can see my never doing any other kind of stitching. I received my charts almost 4 weeks ago. I will have been working on my Three Graces by Josephine Wall for 4 weeks on Friday. I am loving every tiny, solitary stitch I take. I will try to post a picture soon. I need to try to locate the battery charger for the batteries for my computer. I may just break down and buy a few batteries until then. I pack my charger away somewhere and have no idea where to look for it now. Almost 4 full weeks and I still have not completed a single full page of the chart. 36 pages, I can see this going on for a long, long time. Not that I'm complaining. But I can see me moving on to the other design shortly. As well as purchasing a few others. I'm thinking of setting a up a rotation, trying to work on just HAED charts for a short while. I figure that with all I have been through, I deserve to spoil myself a little. What better way then with a start of stash of HAED charts!!

Finally, a few pictures to share of my currently WIPs and a few finished objects. This is Teresa Wentzler's Woodland Fairy. I started it last June and finished it in early October. I loved working on this piece. It is destined to become a keepsake pillow for my friend's daughter born in Feburary. The only thing I left out from the pattern was the frenchknots. I've been stitching for over 10 years and I still can't do a frenchknot to save my life. All well, maybe someday. As included in my post today, current pictures of Mirabila's The Dreamer, and Stoney Creek's Confetti Clown. I have made the promise to myself that I will finishe Confetti Clown before starting my HAED, once they arrive. I will be severly tempted to start as soon as it arrives, so I'm trying my best to finish it now.
Thank you for the kind comments!! I am so happy that some one is reading my posts. I truely do appreciate your kind words. I have come to the realization the last few days that I will be much better off. I will deserve so much more. And he certainly does not deserve this continued power over me! :)) I will survive as the song goes.

Ah well, on too my stitching news. I have put The Dreamer aside for the moment to work on Confetei Clown from Stoney Creek. I have stitch in once before. It was my first large project on Aida which isn't saying much as it is only 7 by 11 inchs approximately. I am enjoying it as much this time as the last. I have also just purchased my first Heaven and Earth Designs patterns. They certainly will not be the last I purchase. I can see me going exclusively to these designs. The details and colours used these designs as well as the complexity seem to suit my stitching style completely. And the fact that they are all fantasy designs does not hurt at all either.
Well, I will post pictures as soon as I can. Updated pictures of my 3 current projects. I have promised myself to finish at least one of the 3 before I start one of my HAED designs.

I have to make this quick, thunder is rumbling in the sky as I type this. Being a Computer Technical Support Agent, I should know better then to have my computer on during a thunder storm. It has been unusually hot for about a week. It feels more like then end of June then the end of May. It's suppose to be cooler tomorrow, so we'll see. As the thunder rumbles once again, I close for today!! Type at ya soon!!

So it would appear as the title of my post states. I started this blog on Friday, and here I am, waiting four days to add a post. Not something I hope to continue with for certain! Rapunzel progressing. I started Rapunzel approximately 5 weeks ago and she is approximately halfway finished. I am anxiously awaiting my income tax return in order for a bit of shopping. I have been drooling over Heaven and Earth Designs charts for several months now. They look right up my alley. Small, simple patterns do not normally appeal to me. I prefer the challenge of a large, many colour, multi-stitch design. This is likely why Teresa Wentzler is my favourite designer. All those blended colours, the large graphs with a few beads or complicated stitches.
Now for a little on the more later comment from my last post. As my brief description states, I am in the midst of a crisis. The man I love and live with sometime ago stated that because of the ghosts of his past, does not wish to be in any relationship right now. I asked him to take some time and think things through before he threw away what we had. As of Sunday, he states that he is happy with the way things are, with us just being friends, for now. I have yet to find out what the for now means, hopefully I will know by tomorrow. As it stands now, we will be moving at the end of June. I don't know where he will be going, likely moving in with his sister. I will be moving in with some friends. Not bad thing considering that they 2 of the sweetest boys ever. One 18 months and one only 5 weeks old :))
