First of all I want to thank all of you who commented and gave me advice on my previous post. I've spent the weekend brooding at Boyfriend's and realized that the legal field is just Not For Me. I wouldn't do it if I wasn't getting paid and every day is an agony. If I start sobbing before work, get panic attacks, etc., it's not for me. So then what do I do? I worked as an archivist for a few years, and I loved it. I was good at it, I enjoyed it, and it was fantastic. So let the research begin. It's time I made a life decision for myself, and no one else.
I was visiting Boyfriend this weekend and when I got home this afternoon I have goodies from 1-2-3 Stitch waiting for me. Some beads and silks for Chatelaines, some DMC thread and something I'm SO EXCITED about: gridding wire! So I'll be implementing that soon!
Another thing is that HAED released an awesome chart: Middle Earth. Do not click that link if you're trying to resist temptation and are a giant Lord of the Rings Nerd. I made this mistake. I made the bigger mistake of showing Boyfriend. Boyfriend made puppy dog eyes but insisted that he didn't want me to spend the time or money on him. Heart melted, I promptly purchased and kitted. Oh, gosh. On the up side, I made some decent progress on Medieval Shelf this weekend!
It's starting to come together! I didn't want to start another page of College until I got the gridding wire but now that I have it, it'll be full steam ahead... Once I visit Boyfriend again.
Happy Stitching Everyone! 11 (working) days of my temp job left.
