Stone Roses progress


Here is my progress thus far on Stone Roses. Not a ton done, but she has a face. I really, really, like to do faces first on pieces that have them. :)

Not too much else going on. DH and I are kind of in a holding pattern on any decision on the house. My contract at my current placement is up for renewal and although they've told me they are definitely extending the contract (in fact it technically expired on 12/31, and I'm still working and getting paid) they just haven't said how long yet. That new expiration date will influence any decision we make since it will represent how long I have a "for sure" contract and paycheck. The date they threw at me last I checked was 12/31/2009 which would be great, but the date could also be as soon as 3/31/2009 (they usually go in quarters) so we'll see.

Oh her face is so beautiful! Don't do this to me! I have her in my stash and and a perfect piece of fabric for her too...

Keeping my fingers crossed for good job news.

Oh my gosh - that is gorgeous! I have the pattern somewhere, I think....I may have to pull it out and give it some serious consideration.

Wow, her face is really pretty. I don't think I've ever really paid much attention to that pattern.

This is one of my favorite Miras. I can't wait to watch it progress as you stitch. Hope your contract is extended for the whole year!

Everything happens for a reason...hang in there. The face is beautiful...like an angel watching over you! Good idea to put a face on first...it can indicate so many things
