The last week has been busy and frustrating for me. I had two job interviews and still no word back from either of them (arghhhh!). Between job interviews, I ferried my dad to doctor appointments and my mom on errands. I then got the bright idea to try and make a pattern of Clay Aiken to punch and have tried all sorts of ways and means but I'm not satisfied with anything I've come up with so far. I even d/l a trial version of a cross stitch design program that you can import photos into but it's just not working out the way I invisioned (lol, does anything ever?). In the meantime I made a simple bluebird design for my mom that was very easy to work on while, say waiting in a doctor's office. She picked out a blue shirt almost the same color as the bird to put it on and here's the finished product:

I might have been more productive this week if I hadn't also gone to the library. I got a craving to re-read Anne McCaffrey's Petaybee series. I own some of my other favorites of hers like the Freedom, Crystal Singer and the "talent" series. I love to read and I'm bad to bury my head in a book and not get much else done when I have something good to read. I'm almost finished with book two with two to go and I read fast so I'll be back to stitching early next week. Now if I could just figure out how to do justice to Clay Aiken in stitchery. Hmmmmmmm, maybe I'll find another project to do and think about it some more. In the meantime, wish me luck in the job hunt, ok?

Wow - I am always so impressed with your designs. This bluebird is gorgeous.

I'm eager to see just how you do Clay Aiken in stichery. Sounds kinky!

Good luck with the job hunt. Your designs are so beautiful, so creative--surely this would carry over into everything you do, making you an employee who would be a boon to any company!! So I predict you'll get a great job.
