TGIF. Work has been extremely stressful lately. After humming along at a good pace for quite a while, the economic nose dive has hit us. Our assembly plant workers were cut to a four-day work week, and now it is being considered to furlough the workers for a few weeks on and off so that they will be able to collect unemployment while maintaining the company health insurance. And then rumors are flying in the building where I work. So I just hope and pray that I will continue to have the job that I love. And the guy who said that layoffs were not in the owners' vocabulary? He was one of the first to go. So sad.
So basically this year has been stressful on several counts. I can't seem to stick with any quilting or sewing for any length of time. But we are doing well in our house and find that God is faithful. I'm glad that there is a Rock that is higher than I.
Tomorrow Audrey and I and hopefully Melissa will take a road trip to a cross stitch store. There are a few thrift shops on the way that we want to check out. We always seem to have a lot of fun together.
I'll get back to sewing and posting pictures once I get new batteries for the camera. My friend NancyF sent me a Miss Rosie pattern for tuffets, and I've made a few of those.
I need one color of floss for a project I've just about completed. I know I have that color somewhere around here, and it'll turn up after I bought the replacement.
Hope things are going well for you.
