Soon as the materials get here, I'll be starting. Then come January, I will be switching jobs. I feel really good about this change. Somehow my world has just become a bit more peaceful.

White Nights update
Fabric is Enchanted Fabrics Evergreen painted linen. I can't get the fabric color to come out right, what's on the EF website is much closer to what it's really like.
In other news, I'm beginning the process of finding another job. There's a lot of stuff going on at work right now that I don't like dealing with, and some of the attitudes and directions that things are going I refuse to be a part of. I have other skills where I can actually be paid what I'm worth. Did have to write a resume for the first time.
As far as fun stuff goes, I downloaded the Colorful Tabs plug-in for Firefox last night. The tab I'm typing in right now is purple. :D

St. Basil's HD!!!
St. Basil's is DONE!!!!! I finished it Monday night, but Blogger has been giving me fits with pictures. I'm not entirely sure this is going to work on the first try. ETA: OK, so the whole posting a picture thing with Blogger still ain't working. So a thumbnail will have to do.
Needless to say I'm thrilled to pieces about it. St. Pete immediately went on my Snaps and it shall stay there for at least 2 weeks. I should have Part 1 finished up before I rotate and I hope to get a good start on the over 100 Algerian eyelets in Part 2. I'm probably crazy, but I'm doing all my beading last. That's the way I like to do it though, and I'm not ready to wrestle with a 40" scroll frame just yet.
