Out like a lion

Isn't that the saying?  March will come in like a lamb and leave like a lion?  We've had high wind warnings all day.  I'd hoped to hang sheets outside since the temp was supposed to be in the 70s but that didn't happen.  They would have been blown all over town.

Looking back at my recent posts, it looks like I owe a couple weeks worth of stitching pictures.

Last week, I finished a corner of Chatelaine's Rose Garden Mandala.

I started on the next set of gates, but work has been very stressful with the new CFO making it plain she doesn't like me and doesn't want me there so I only managed to get the urn before I switched projects again.  

Coat of Arms came out then and tonight I've managed to finish another page.  Here's page 7

I started page 8 tonight so lets see how far I get.

On a totally non-stitchy note, does anybody know of any accounting openings in southeast Nebraska??  If not, and I'm assuming not, lol, but I would appreciate any and all well wishes in my job search.  Nebraska just has such a low unemployment rate that finding a new job is just kind of tough.  My husband and I even joked around last night that we should move to North Dakota and go to work in the oil industry.  It seems they have a huge number of jobs they can't fill.

Faces of Fairy

Just a quick update.  I've had my Faces of Fairy 79 out since I finished Dorothy and hit some big patches of single colors instead of all the confetti I seem to have found last month.  



I'm only about 12 stitches from the bottom of the page.  

I started filling in her eye Sunday night and I'm not sure how the colors are going to work in the "white" of her eye, but I suppose I'll just have to trust that it will work least till it doesn't.

One last Dorothy update?

Ever since I finished Watergarden last week, I've been working steadily on Dorothy Walpole.  I'm hoping she'll be done by next weekend.  here's where she was last night.
