Another Tweet Tea

I had a very productive weekend and was able to finish a few projects.  First of all I finished another bird from the Bucilla Kit- Birds and Teacups.  Two down and one to go in the series.  I will probably frame the series when I finish the last one and hang them in my kitchen.

I also managed to finish the March block from the Month by Month series from Sunflower Seeds.  It is pictured with the frame that I plan to use for each month.

This project I am very proud of and I just love how it turned out.  The pattern is from a company called Bloomin' Minds.  I used mainly fabric from my stash but I did buy the striped fabric at JoAnn's Fabrics.  You cannot tell but the words are stitch in a variegated floss from JP Coats that has pink, purples, greens and blues in it, very springy looking.  I also used a variegated green floss to long stitch across the stems with.  I cannot wait to hang this up this year.

I have a bit of good news to share.  I may have a job.  I got a call last week from a friend and she was letting me know that the company she works for is opening up a new store closer to me and wants me to work there.  It is a craft store and I would be working in the frame shop.  I used to work in a frame shop with my friend at another store and also in one that she used to own so she knows my work.  I am excited at the possibility and hope that I get it.  I would be working while my son is in school and also a few weekends a month so it should be fun.  Its funny, someone told me that they didn't know I was looking for work and I commented that I wasn't, that the job found me.  I should know if I get the job sometime this week.
