I also finished up my portion of Annemarie's Neighborhood. I hope she likes it! In addition to my little gypsy wagon, I added a willow tree, a robin, some butterflies, and a little bunny. I worked really hard to make this mean something, and I think it came out pretty well. Here is a picture of the whole thing, so you can see how my little bit works into the whole:It was kind of an odd space I had to work with, but because I knew what I wanted to stitch would fit there pretty well, I figured I'd take that stress off the stitchers who follow me!
In other news, I had what I think was a good interview last Friday at a community college about 3 hours away. If I'm offered the position (and I accept it), we'll obviously be moving. That's part of why I was working so quickly on Annemarie's piece -- I wanted to get it ready to mail ASAP. Ugh, I hate upheaval. Oh, and I followed my interview by making an appearance at my 10th college reunion (also in the area), where I got disgustingly drunk. What can I say, I was suddenly 20 again....surrounded by all the people who were a bad influence on me then.....Ah well. At least I could crash in a dorm room, and didn't have to drive anywhere!
