Okay, enough about politics... want to hear some good news... no, some GREAT news (no not pregnant yet). I am getting a new job! I was made the offer last week and accepted. I gave my current company 2.5 weeks and will be starting my new job March 5th. I think there is more room for career growth at this new company, I will be on the cutting edge of semiconductor process engineering research and so will expand my resume and skill set, and let us knot forget that it is a SIGNIFICANT increase in pay - woo hoo! So part of me is a nervous wreck but the other part of me is super excited and I just have to keep telling myself I had to get trained for my current job and now am comfortable and it will be the same with this new job. They have already discussed training with me and I don't think I'll be thrown directly into the fire on my first day ;)
I also finished the stuffed owl I was making for my friend Beth. It turned out really well and I love the colors she picked. It really has a masculine feel to it, perfect for her upcoming little boy. The second picture is the back of the owl which shows the little caterpillar on his butt. All the owls I make (only two so far) have something cute on their bum. Mom helped with this one and the machine sewing - I HAVE to get a sewing machine now, made things so much faster.
I call him Winston but like any adopted pet Beth and her family may decide to change his name and that is fine too. I really enjoy making these owls and if someone has a request let me know just don't all ask for one at the same time. The decorative stitching is all hand embroidery and I find it relaxing to do while watching TV.
So I think that is about it today. Only two days until my next doctor's appointment! Hopefully that cyst is GONE and we can move on. TTYL
