I brought out Emerald Mermaid for the old ladies and they were impressed. They do wish, however, that I was a one-at-a-time stitcher. Almost all of them are. They're always asking if I finished the last one I was working on whenever I bring something new to stitching. Sorry, these are my spots.
Back in January of 2011, she looked like this. (But oops, she had an elbow when I showed her last November.)
Today, she has more body.
Thanks for your good wishes for the job interview. I have another interview. So I'll be spending more time prepping. I am totally ambivalent about this--it's rather far away and we're trying to decide how to manage that--but it's hard to forget that I haven't been employed full time for um, years.
I've taken out the marquoir, but between hosting Sunday dinner and the job, I'm afraid the progress won't be what we're hoping for.
