A brief update on why I haven’t been stitching…

As this is my stitching blog, I don’t normally include stuff about my life on it, however, I think a bit of an explanation might be in order…

So in October I applied for a new job, and in November got an interview that was a bit vague about whether I had got a job there or not. I did the stuff they asked me to do, and mid December I was offered a job. It is a complete career change, but I think it is worth it πŸ˜€

Anyway, the new job is in Melbourne, which is about 300km (200 miles) away from where I was living. So between mid December and early January, I had to get as much done as possible. Then I have spent the next 3 weekends dashing backwards and forwards to complete the packing, as well as finding a place to live, and starting training for the new job (paid training, thank goodness). In case anyone was wondering, I am learning to be a Black Jack dealer at the casino.

Now we have a new place to live ( a few dramas there, but mostly good), and I am getting my stuff delivered Friday. Then it will be a matter of unpacking and finding everything, and getting back on track.

The positives of the new job is it is night shift, so I will have more time during the day to track down dyes (I have to find a better black – the one I have is blue-black not pure black…) and I need to list some things on eBay (scissor Fobs and some fabrics… How about that for an ebay store name? Fobs and Fabrics?)

So I have a few pieces of fabric I need to dye that have been hanging over my head for a while, and then I will be able to have some fun with dyes and get some pieces onto eBay or somewhere if people are interested.

Happy stitching!

    I miss you so much, friend! But, I’m glad to hear all the great news! πŸ˜€ Congratulations for your new job and new place! I hope all the things will settle down soon so you could back to your stitching projects again. By the way, my sister wanted to be a Black Jack dealer at the casino during her early years, but didn’t have enough courage to pursue that dream, so she left it behind. Well, I’m honest to say, you’re a very brave person then! πŸ˜€ Happy stitching too!
