I HATE being sick! I have had a headache and general achiness for the last 2 days... can still function but I'm sooooo tired!

I couldn't even concentrate on stitching...... instead I have been doing something I have been putting off for ages... unpicking projects so I can reuse the fabric.... I had a couple that I didn't end up finishing....... fairy moon, cause the fabric was too small, and waiting for ships.... cause I wanted to do it on a different colour......... I can't believe how many hours I have now spent unpicking :)

Does anyone know if it is possible to get rid of the stitching marks? Maybe washing the fabric? They are both hand dyeds from Countrystitch.......

Guess What?!! I got the job!! Went back today for a second interview (feeling crap) and got it!!! I start tomorrow!!!! YAY! That will make life more interesting.

And what would a post be without mention of Mike?! LOL He is good..... He loves me :)

Thanks everyone for your comments :)

Congratulations on getting the job Andie...hope you are feeling well when you start tomorrow. After going through the dreaded UFO box, I found a few (a little more than a few actually) ex-projects that I decided to unpick and reuse the fabric. I have unpicked was a linen that had dark threads used on it and the other was a light coloured evenweave with red thread used. I handwashed both and all the little thread fibers have gone. Cant even tell they have already been used. That was how I spent my day with the kids at home...another teacher only day at school!!! Have a good sleep tonight :)
