how to bring job to foreground?

Hi,

I just suspended a short commandline script to the background using ctrl-z
How do I bring it forward again? The bash prompt didn't come up after ctrl-z.
The script is:

    for dir in *; do tar czf $dir.tgz $dir;done

If I open up another console I can see the processes are still active
using 'ps -a'
but the commands 'jobs, fg, bg' say there is nothing to control

thanks in advance for your time,
