Advice Needed

OK my hubby is going for a job interview this weekend, 500 miles away up in the wee scottish highlands.

its not better pay, its less in fact, there is no house, no job for me ( i would have to find another) nothing but a dream of his to work in the forest, and live in Scotland.

has anyone ever done this, just moved from family and friends, (not that i have many since i have  raised kids since i was 19 and they all partied so we just grew apart)

I am scared stupid but also excited as well, he might not even get the job but now he wants to move he will look for a job till he gets one.
I dont know anyone thats done this, just picked up there belongings and moved, 
well at least my stitching will fit in the boot of my car lol

are we stupid? am i  having a hubby that wants to have less money just so he is happy?

Happy Dance Time

OK finally its happy dance time, and i am SO glad i have finished this one, after two full on weeks of backstitching i got it done!

Now since i am on a roll finishing off things i started two years ago,  so i have restarted (again ) the wedding sampler. I spent all weekend finishing off the stitching so yes, i have some more backstitching to do , lovely!
Hoping it wont take me as long to get this one backstitched and beaded up as i didnt realise i had so many unfinis

Can You See Her Smile?

Two posts, in one week, well there is a first, but i just wanted to show the progress that  I have made on Mermaid. You can finally see her face ( well sort of). but she is finally coming along, if only i didn't have so much back stitch to do!

Update of The Gypsy Wagon

Didn't manage to finish the backstitching but this is what it looked like when I finished the cross stitching. This is not a design to stitch if you don't like back stitching! Hoping to finish it by next weekend.

Happy Stitching

Nearly there

I have been away from blog land for a while. Three jobs, three kids, and a allotment has taken my stitching time to zero. But as I am writing this I am in the Scottish Highlands and I have for 11 days stitched.
The result is I have finished all the cross stitch for the gypsy wagon and up to now I have back stitched half of the design.
I was hoping to show a picture of it all done by this weekend as I am back home after two weeks of touring Wee Bonnie Scotland ( without visiting one relative) but it doesn't look like it will get finished. Will post a picture on Sunday. Now off to fight them blasted Scottish midgies again-  and I losing miserably!

Happy Stitching
