All that remains

I have been diligently stitching on A Sampler Chatelaine this week and all that remains on the left side are Queen Stitches.   Rather like a child who leaves the detested vegetables on his plate to be eaten last,  I have no choice now, so with music as a diversion the Queen Stitches will be completed tonight.
On a brighter note, I had a job interview this week which looks hopeful as a second interview is scheduled for next week.   So with that in mind I bought some fabric for a new blouse to wear.   After some years working in a warehouse situation, I will need to upgrade my wardrobe to 'professional office wear' if I'm successful in obtaining the position.   Fingers crossed (when not stitching).

Yesterday was Embroiderers Guild and at the meeting I stitched on an Aztec Stitch bookmark.   We had an interesting speaker talking about her trip to Machu Picchu so my concentration was not so good at times :-)   Last night while watching The Great British Bake Off I made further progress so the end is in sight.
The HD3QBEM is not so well today so I will sign off here and go keep her company.

  1. Hope your mom gets to feeling better quickly. Congrats on the intereviews. Machu Pichu is on my bucket list so I would have been very interested in the program. I look forward to seeing your Aztec Stitch project. I finished the bookmark after many years and think I might someday make another. The chatelaine looks great!

  3. That's a really pretty top.

    I love queen stitches but I think that I am possibly the only person in the world who does! I love the finished look of them.

  8. Hope your mom feels better! Good luck to you on the job interview. I am in the same boat...trying to interview and my wardrobe has become a little too casual. I hope it all goes well.

  9. Hope the interview went well and your Mum is feeling better now.
    If I have a part I don't enjoy I try to alternate between a length on that part and a length on a part I do enjoy stitching!
