Impatient

Work has gotten quite stressful (budget shortfalls meant that 21 positions were eliminated in January, and everything has been in upheaval since), and while I'm thankful I still have my job,  I'm ready for some time away!  As part of my "Big-0" birthday this year, my mother and my MIL have pretty much covered the cost of my trip to Celebration of Needlework in NH, and last night I got my confirmation email from Kelly.  So, 3 nights in a hotel, lots of stitchy time with friends, shopping, and a class - here I come!  I decided to try Janis Note's "Stitcher's Chest" project; it was the most affordable given the fact that chest is included.  Only 16 days.......

Have a great time.
