Last week I played the waiting game. The second interview for the job went well, the recruitment agency gave positive feedback and I was told to wait for a phone call on Friday. Wait I did. And wait and wait and wait... But no call. Hopefully on Monday there will be good news.
But I managed to improve the shining hour. Progress was made on A Sampler Chatelaine. I don't really like the way the verse has words split between the lines but I am following the chart and that is what the instructions say.
One small problem however. My current project is A Sampler Chatelaine and that is far too fine for me to see by dimmer light in our temporary accommodation so I had a rapid search of the stash and found some scraps of linen and DMC perle thread and made a start on other projects to take with me.
Yesterday the HD3QBEM and I went out for a drive in the countryside to take our mind off "the phone call". We first stopped at our usual place for a sushi lunch and then on through the hills on the edge of the city until we spied this
I gingerly picked my way through the displays of antiques but no needlework boxes (my promised birthday gift) so we drove on.
Over another hill and onwards until we eventually arrived home. One of us was tired and the other grateful to have had her mind taken off her troubles! A light dinner, an hour of Midsome Murders and a good sleep has done wonders.
