OK, Now What?


It was one of those days when I say, now what? Today just seemed to get old to me. I think it was the first time since February when I've felt, OK, I've had enough, the party is over and I'm ready to go back to work!
I'm kind of sitting on pins and needles at the moment. I'm waiting to hear about a date for my 2nd interview at the company I went to last week who is still interested. The interview I went on Monday was good too and I'm anxious to hear back from them whether they want to proceed or not. Good practice means waiting a week before contacting them, so if I don't hear from them by next Monday I have the green light to call and inquire about their interest. My third prospect is tomorrow - sort of! They want to interview me and are willing to meet my salary requirements however I must go to their office for testing first, which I'm doing tomorrow. I just have all of these opportunities, thankfully, and I'm getting anxious - ARGH!

I did get a check today for the lovely pillow above. There is a local shop that will sell some of my hooked pillows and yeah, sold one! Sales are few and far between with the hooking since they are priced higher due to the time involved (and materials) to make them but I'll take those few and far betweens though. Anything to have an excuse to stay creative right?
Speaking of which, I wish some of my stitching in my Etsy shop would sell too but, oh well, I'm enjoying the opportunity to stitch and create.

Hi Beth, I received your lovely mini pillow in the mail from the Pay It Forward event and it's so beautiful! I am so proud to own one of your works of art. I am working on your goody, as well.

Good luck on your interviews, I know they can be quite nerve wracking. I have a feeling you will be rewarded for your faith and perserverance!
