Squee! Cross-stitchy news

First off, my first finish of the year! Yay! I've been working on this Eeyore baby sampler for a co-worker for about 6 or 7 months now, long enough to be thoroughly sick of him (even with a couple of other finishes done to take a break from him). But now, as I said many, many times in college, it's better than good, it's done!

Another shot, so you can see the personalization. And yes, this was before it was pressed.

French knots! I'm so proud of myself. :)



So, while at Michael's getting foam core to frame Eeyore, I had to ask an associate for help. She directed me to some of the self-sticking mounting board (meh - I found what I wanted), then the following conversation took place:

Her: So, do you cross stitch?
Me: Yup!
Her: A lot?
Me: Yup! :D
Her: Wanna teach it?
Me:...Uh, sure?

Yeah. They want me to teach a cross stitch class about once a month (at least, starting out once a month, then seeing what kind of interest they have, they may increase the frequency). I'm to come back in next Saturday to fill out some paperwork and I need to bring in something I've done. I've got a small kit that I can finish in that time, plus show them my WIPs (Teresa Wentzler's Egyptian Sampler and a Frank Lloyd Wright design for my father-in-law).

Eeeeee! I'm so excited. They're going to pay me to teach people how to cross stitch. Plus i'll get a discount. Eeee!

Good luck!
Crazy person, working on a Teresa Wentzler pattern! (Says the other crazy person who's been working on the English Cottage Sampler (http://www.twdesignworks.com/Designs/ecs.html) for six years now...)
