Well, so, I got here on Wednesday. It wasn't a very eventful trip, the trains were on time, the plane was on time. All I took with me was a suitcase and a backpack, pretty much stuffed full. As I didn't take very much with me, I also didn't take much of my stitching stuff with me. In fact, this is all I took:
And finally, I finished Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan.
I shan't lie, I didn't much enjoy stitching these two, but I am really pleased with the outcome. They just need a wash and iron, and then they can go off to be made into a quilt.
And updates on the other kits pictured above:

In the two whole days that I've been here I already started doing some job seeking. The amount of jobs that I've found and applied for in those two days has easily been the amount that I usually applied for in two weeks in the UK. I am very hopeful at the moment that it shouldn't take me too long to find a job (though give it a month or so and I may be singing a different tune).
As soon as I do find a job, I'm going to be getting what I need to make a start on It's Berry Time which I'm really looking forward to stitching. I also found a couple of textiles courses in the area and I think I'll join them too.
