Bee Pinkeep finish and the best news ever!!

Finished up a quick design last night by Country Cottage Needleworks . I only stitched the inner portion of the design, as the fabric was simply not big enough to complete the whole design. Which is ok, because this means I get to stitch it again, LOL! :)

At any rate, here are my stitchy notes and the picture:

Design: Bee Pinkeep

Designer: Nikki Lehman of Country Cottage Needleworks for Gift of Stitching magazine. Issue 12; January 2007.

Fabric: 28 count natural Glasgow linen

Fibers: DMC 437, 716, 3011, 3012, 3371, 3712, 3865

071610 Bee Pinkeep by CCN

I am having my stitching time curtailed because as of last night I became employed again after 2.5 years! Wahoo!!! My Nevada state license finally came in yesterday and I called up the place I had interviewed in a couple of months ago and left a message with the hiring manager to that effect. She called me back last night and offered me a job! I start today at 1:30, so I had better go shake a leg! I have some stuff to take care of before I go into work!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend! :)
