I am back in Auckland and back at work... which is ok but it means limited time for stitching. Also, our clocks have changed, so by the time I have made dinner and cleared up afterwards the light has long gone outside. I will have to get myself organised and have colours and patterns decided and picked at the weekend as I find the artificial light distorts colours too much.
I am having a dilema with Jackie's block as I am swinging between two different blocks. I absolutely love the whole idea of what Jackie has chosen. I can't wait to see what the rest of you are going to come up with. I may make both of my ideas and see how they look afterwards. Luckily the white backing fabric Jackie sent must have been from her Korean stash as I have the same one, some of you would have used it in my Stack of Books block.
Jason and I are going to the Jersey Boys show this afternoon. He was lucky enough to see it with his Dad in London last year and when he heard the show was coming here really wanted to go again. At least I will get to see it this time too!
Some exciting news for me this week, I had a letter from the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants confirming my admittance into the College of Chartered Accountants. So I can now call myself a Chartered Accountant, or Susan Brettschneider CA. There will be a ceremony held in the next month or so where all new CAs will be awarded their certificates, can't wait! it has been a long and at times tough road, but I got there! Now time to enjoy my hobbies again.
Have a good weekend all,
