A New Project

I missed my Sunday post day because I got all wrapped up in my write-up about my play. It went brilliantly and all my teachers and friends were so complimentary about it. My parents were there too and they were very proud that I had managed to write and produce this one act play. But I am glad it's all over. It was very tiring being the director!
So now onto stitching. I'm afraid I haven't got as much to share as last time because of my busy schedule, but I have started on a new project. My three closest friends and I are all big Twilight fans. I haven't read the books myself but I have seen all three of the films with them. When I saw this freebie on Plum Street Samplers, I knew it would be perfect for them. I'm going to make each of them a pillow as an addition to their Christmas present, E is for Edward on one side and J is for Jacob on the other. Plus it gives me a chance to use the black aida I had in my stash. I have done one out of the six squares so far, and just started on the second one.

I have done a little bit more beading on Snowmen - one of them is now equipped with his scarf and hat! I'm hoping it won't be too long before this one is finished, but of course, I say that all the time :) Here's where I'm up to on Snowmen . . .

I think I'm going to start a new Halloween project soon, one with pumpkins of course so I can enter it in the Great Pumpkin Challenge. I found a freebie called Colourful Witch by Barbara Ana that is calling out to me at the moment. When I get the threads all organised, I'll make a start on it.
Other exciting news, I got a job! It's only a weekend thing in a local supermarket, but it's decent pay and close to where I live. What more could you ask for? That also means more for my stash fund :)
Have a wonderful week,
