Life is good!

No more mice! It looks like I did an excellent job finding and blocking possible mice entrances. A whole week went by and I didn't find even one evidence of mouse visits.

And it has been a blast at work. I've got a $1000 bonus (less taxes of course) and I've got a wage raise! Life could not be any better! To celebrate I went shopping to Herrshners.com, 123stitch.com, koolerdesign.com and everythingcrossstitch.com. I was unstoppable! Many of my favorites on-line shops had sales and I found so many things at 40%-50% off that were on my wish lists.

And I was working on Frederick, here is my new WIP:

  2. Wow, I wish I'd had time to do that much work on my WIP. He is really starting to take shape. I didn't even get one section of needlepoint filled in.

  14. Congratulations times three! Once for the bonus - which does brighten the spirit, once for the wage increase - which does miracles for the morale - and once and perhaps most important, for banishing the mice! Good work on picking up your WIP. He will be beautiful. I need to search my WIP's and really dig into completing some....trouble is, I have to finish my SAL's first.


    Happy stitching
