Job news

Would like to thank everyone for the comments that they have left and the well wishes left for DH for his job prospects, they are much appreciated.
The job that hubby interviewed for last Friday in Canberra contacted him on Monday to say that they wanted to talk with his referees, so that is some great news. The other Canberra position, that he was unable to organise an interview with, conducted a phone interview with him on Monday afternoon and now want to see him in person. So hubby is off to Canberra again on Wednesday, and then on to Melbourne on Thursday.

Today is his last day of work and he has been in such high spirits, I am very proud of him. This proves to me that our time here is up, and as Luke begins secondary school next year and Joel start primary school, our move could not have come at a better time.

As for stitching I am currently working on my fractual, and I feel that I have made some progress on it. I am itching to start a Miribilia after I have my next finish, but I would like to incorporate some smaller projects into my rotation as most of them are LARGE. At this stage I have Sleeping Beauty and Petal Fairy almost fully kitted, lets see what happens.

Hope everyone is well and stitching

So any news of the outcome of the interview? I think your DH has clearly shown that he is interested in the job and this counts A LOT for the firm indeed!!!
I'm glad to see that your uni woork is on tracks, I still have dreams of my years at the university: I come to have exams and I haven't worked yet and all. Awful... How come I still have fears of those 15 years later?! LOL!
Desert Guardian looks like a huge project! You're using a very beautiful fabric for it.
Take care, Joanne.
