I stitched Cup of Cheer for my kitchen with my pink "Old British Castles" dishes and my copper things in mind. Last night I was able to finish her into a little pillow to hang in the kitchen right above the tea and coffee and I'm quite pleased with the finish.
The subject line refers to some very good news we received this weekend. My husband was accepted with funding to a PhD program at Fordham University in New York. He received unofficial word via email, much earlier then we expected to hear anything--he applied to 10 schools, and we had not expected to hear anything until March or April. What a blessing to get good news first! We will still have to wait to hear back from the other schools until we can make any decisions, but at least we know now that he has a great option for next fall. We might be living in New York City!!!! That would be a big adjustment, but we would love the opportunity to enjoy all the museums, libraries, and culture in New York for a few years. Heaven only knows how we would afford it but I'm sure we'd make a way.
It promises to be another busy week. I hope you are all as well as can be!
