Four days off now... aaaahhhhh

First things first, it is this old project again... one more terra cotta colored house with big black windows and green doors to stitch... then plenty of backstitching, rhodes stitches, satin stitching and jessicas to stitch.. then I will be done with buildings - yes! Soon, I think, soon!

I have the next four days off from work - and am so looking forward to it. Tomorrow is Mike's birthday, and we agreed I would take time off in case he wants to do anything... I have no clue what tomorrow will bring... will we be here? travel somewhere? Who knows, he is quiet about it so far. Then Friday is my late father's birthday, which is a solemn day for me... and then the weekend. As you can imagine, I am looking forward to this break now.

I have some office news, at last. Mike found a new office for me. He took photos and I will see if I can locate them and share them. The building is literally diagonally across the street from my current swampy office (boy, the mold stink almost overwhelmed me there again today). We are looking at a July 8th (or so) move... there is one small issue to get resolved in the next day or two - a document the insurance company I am contracted with will need... other than that, all seems fine. It is apparently a very large office.... well, it sounds like it will be good and I will get those photos soon :-) I wrote up my termination letter for the current landlord today, but am holding that until that small issue gets resolved... a tiny bit of limbo here...

Stitched on today: Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler and Medieval Town Mandala

Happy Birthday to Mike! I hope you at least go to a nice restaurant for his big day.
Stay away from that moldy office if you can-that stuff is bad for you. I'm glad you found a new place-that is a relief.
Happy backstitching, etc on your lovely piece.

Congratulations on the new office - hope you are out of limbo soon, and in your new digs!

Congratulations also to Mike on his birthday. I hope you'll enjoy a fun four days off! And I hope that the day of your father's birth brings happy memories.

Dear Carol,
congrats for you finished sampler! It turned out beautiful! And, please, don't worry for your fabric. I'm stitching a lot of projects and I'm not in a hurry. By the way my Houses by CHS became an UFO. I'm going to pull out that design during this month but I was into LHN/CCN patterns.
Happy birthday, Mike!

Congratulations on your finished sampler. Fingers crossed that the small issues are resolved soon and that you can use the big new place very soon. Enjoy those four days and thank you for the daily sharing. I enjoy it every day. Ann.

Happy Birthday to Mike.
I'm glad you have found a new office Carol, you'll be much happier once you get yourself settled in there.

MTM is looking great. I looked at the whole thing just now and you really don't have that much left until it's complete.

MTM just gets more and more beautiful with each posting. How would I fit in the time to stitch it? But it is calling to me. I did a huge update on my future projects (thanks to my blogging fairies), you'll have to take a look.

MTM is stunning Carol!!

Give MIke a hug and wish him a happy birthday from Bren and I. Have a great day tomorrow. I can't wait to find out what Mike has planned.

Great news about the new office. We finally had the ceiling in the shop fixed today which is a relief. It just has to be painted next week. I think the painter is coming Tuesday and then everything from our flood will be fixed.

MTM is looking great; I'm so glad you're almost done with the buildings. :) I hope that Mike is having a wonderful birthday and I'm really glad that he was able to get the new office for you. It sounds very promising and I can't wait to see pictures!

HOORAY!! A new office at last! I'm so glad you're leaving that building. :D
Hope Mike had a wonderful birthday and that you're off doing something really fun!

Happy Belated Birthday to Mike : ) I remember when I turned 45 ... it was a great year.

Good news about the new office location. What a relief to find something close & convenient for your practice.
