It's been awhile and I can't stay long. Just dropping in to wish everyone a happy new year; I hope 2015 greets everyone well!
Also an update on my goings-on. Job hunt continues fruitlessly. The news-keeps on saying the job market is improving but I suspect its a wild pack of lies. I finally decided on a new cross-stitch product bought online which was scary. LOL, It's a Japanese flower garden, which is different for me because I usually love my woodland critters, but the color palette was gorgeous. It's half done.
Also I found an Aida-bookmark and pattern, tucked away in supplies-storage and thought, Wow, I hate the pattern it came with...but a handmade bookmark would be cool... So I'm trying to design my own pattern to fit the bookmark. That's going to take awhile for a surprisingly small thing, because the bookmark has a frilly pink trim, and I'm not really a pink person! (Which as a side note, makes my Japanese garden more weird because it has a lot of pink!) So I'm trying to create a design that doesn't clash with the border, but also doesn't make me want to puke from the color.
