Most momentous thing going on in my life right now - I turned in my resignation at work last Monday. I am taking a year off from work to devote to my embroidery. I am going to work on developing designing and teaching skills, and I am going to explore the possibility of opening my own needlework shop. I am taking a couple of art classes (design and drawing) at a local community college, and I will be going to several embroidery classes throughout the year. I am very excited!
Another dream of mine is also coming to fruition next year. Not only have I enrolled as a student at Hinds Community College, I will be teaching there as well! They called me out of the blue a week ago to see if I would be interested in teaching the night Accounting II class. I have always wanted to teach college accounting classes, so now I have my chance to see if I enjoy it. I am just thrilled about this too! I told Mark, depending on how much I enjoy it, I may become vvveeerrrryyyyyyyyyyy interested in pursuing a docotorate degree, which I have made noises about off and on for several years now. :o)
I have never been so excited at the beginning of a new year in all my life! :o)
I have been making progress on To The Acorn. I finished the reversible blackwork band. And it is reversible! :o)
Here is the front
And here is the back
The next band is cut work, and I have my box basted in and I'm ready to cut threads. That is always a heart-pumping, adrenaline filled moment. :o) Although I have already learned (guess how and why!) how to rethread threads cut in error. LOL I enjoy filet work, and I'm looking forward to working on this band this weekend.
Megan, Billy and I went to see I Am Legend last night, and it was great! Very spooky and creepy, with lots of heart pounding suspense, but it made me cry at spots too. I highly recommend this movie.
