A little bit of this and that

I feel so sorry that lately I don't have much of my stitching projects to show. Life is so busy right now. Last week I have been told that I can make my final exams to become an upholsterer already in June instead of December. That means a lot of stress preparing for the finals now. I also started a new internship last Monday. It will take about 2 month and will end right before my exam starts. But the thing is, that the internship is at the Helsinki City Theater. It's the biggest one in Finland and I just couldn't say NO to an offer like this. I work in the upholstery of the theater and am part of building the scenery for an upcoming new play.

But even though I don't have much time for stitching, I made a little progress on Emma's Sampler. Only a few boast buds and the surrounding is missing. I think I can finish this over the weekend.

And couldn't the weekend begin better than with a parcel from the craft store carrying you latest order? - Here they are: I treated myself with the 1999 Christmas Sampler from Carriage House Samplings and the Special Delivery Sampler from Blackbird Designs. I discovered after placing the order that Special Delivery is actually a Birth Sampler, so I don't really know now what to do with it. Maybe I stitch it with the name that comes in the chart. I don't really know yet. But it is anyways very pretty.

That is a nice progress. Even if you don't have much time for stitching, every stitch you do is a progress.

Good luck with your exams. I keep my fingers crossed for you that they will go good for you.
