Big Eyes Kitty - 20 hour update

Hello again everyone!

Here's the second update of Big Eyes Kitty. It's so nice to have a piece that stitches up quickly with only a few colours and little confetti. It means I get the satisfaction of seeing progress without having to concentrate too hard! I'm enjoying stitching "Misty" so much that I am going to stay with her for another 10 hours. Here are the 10 and 20 hour pictures:

After 20 hours

On a personal note, I've been very, very lucky for the last ten years and not had to work, instead spending the time bringing up my children, looking after my mum and doing voluntary work. However, this week the perfect job appeared and I actually applied for it! I'm not going to say anything more (yet) but please keep your fingers crossed for me. It would be the type of job I would quite gladly do for free, so getting paid for it would be a bonus!!! Let's hope I get called in for an interview.

My son's away next week on a school residential trip so I'm not sure how much stitching I'm going fit in over the next few days. With the weather warming up it'll be a good opportunity to fling open the windows and spring clean his room and the rest of the house if my enthusiasm lasts (which it probably won't!)

See you soon with hopefully some good news, a cleaner house and a third progress picture.

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

You've made some beautiful progress! Here's hoping you get that job interview. I am a stay at home mom too. I have a 2 yr old and 5 day old :)

Thanks and many congratulations on your newborn. With a toddler and a baby it sounds like you won't be doing much stitching for a while!!

Oh, what I wouldn't give to be able to not work again (and still be able to afford to live)! But good luck on the job and we'll keep our fingers and toes crossed!

I admit that I've been very, very lucky and have immense gratitude that my husband's salary (and my redundancy money) allowed me not to have to work. Thanks for your kindness re the job - closing date is today so it's just a waiting game now.
