So Close: November GG

Hello all this is my post for November's GG.  Gifted Gorgeousness is run by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.  It seems like I do a lot of her SALs lol.  As always my GG piece is Paradise which is a present for my cousin for their wedding.  

The so close is that I'm so close to another two pages being finished.  Well one really but I'm stitching two pages at a time so I'm just counting them together and updating my progress bar with the finish.  I'm also so close to starting my job.  I'm supposed to start on Friday.  They were a little late getting me the paperwork I need so I hope that doesn't affect the start date.  I had to get a tb test and fingerprinting so I did all that on Friday and got the results of the tb today.  So they should have all of that paperwork tomorrow.  I'm having trouble determining when my time off is for thanksgiving break.  We have flights booked from before I got the job for Monday through Friday.  One of the school sites says they're off those days but the other sites says only thurs-fri but nobody will give me the actual dates.  They said I'll get my schedule at my orientation which means I would have like 1 day to change my flight.  So frustrating.  It's been bugging me but I've been trying to let it go.  I think it's the full week but the problem is out of their dozen or so locations only two are off the full week but I'm not sure if one of those is my location because their website is very confusing.

Well that was longer than I was expecting lol onto the pictures!

Last GG:


This time:
Almost 4 pages!  Wow really?  I'm really only missing a hundred stitches and like 6 colors.  It seems like I'm always a few stitches short.  I would've had the page finish today but we spent the whole day out lol.  I won't have this much progress again for a long time.  I start my school on the first and that's going to take up most of my time.

Update:  I finished the page about 2 hours after I posted :D

  11. Thanks for taking part n GG this month. Your sun piece is looking epic!

    Congratulations on the new job too. I must ask, what's an alternative school? Is it for children who can't cope with mainstream education for some reason?

  12. WOW you are moving right along! Hope that the schedule for the job got straightened out! It can be frustrating when nobody tells you anything :)
