FINALLY!! The fabric arrived safe and sound, and it's RED. Perfect, gorgeous, and RED.
Customs must have really liked it too, as it sat at the clearing house for five days. :/
And so momentarily, when I finish my coffee, I shall begin Antique Lace. I'm just so excited, my hands are shaking!! My goal today is to make a decision on which beads I'm going to use and get those ordered.
Of course I have no camera for a while, but if I can manage it, I'll post a scan of my bead testing. :)
On the job front I had a telephone interview about the job I mentioned the other day. What I was told before I talked to him was that they were looking for someone to do sandwiches, party platters, prep-work for the cook and taking orders (it's for a catering company). What I found out on the phone was that he's actually looking for the opposite - a cook/chef who could also do some prep work and packaging. BUT, he did sound really interested - even after telling me what he was looking for, we talked for a half hour and he said he'd call me after he does find a cook because he always needs people for prep work too and that he'd be hiring one before the summer rush. So it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, but it's still not a total wash either.
Of to stitch now!! YAY!!!!!
