Last week was definitely one I will always remember.
On Tuesday I was nearly mugged or something in a local parking lot. I was able to run and lock myself in my car and security appeared like magic just as I did and the guy ran away. Pretty upsetting I can tell you.
On Friday morning I was called into my office and got my lay-off notice along with a lot of others. I will be ending employment at the end of December. I found out today another local hospital laid-off 200 people Friday. It is happening at all the hospitals from what people are telling me, apparently actions that have been planned for months and put into effect based on the presidential election. At any rate, finding something else in system or in the medical field isn't looking too good in my city right now. I confess I am more than a little worried about finding any other job right now.
On to stitching.
I confess I missed a night or two this week. I was feeling pretty traumatized after the parking lot incident and well, life gets busy sometimes.
I did get a bit done though. I stitched on some ornaments and on those little Bucilla kits like they sell at Walmart and such for 97 cents.
Here is the one I took a pic of.
My camera seems to have trouble picking up small objects. I also left some of the greenery off of this one as it looked better without it. I'm glad I decided to pull these out as a little instant gratification was in order. Still have one or two but I don't know when I'll do those. Also, those little plastic frames are fussy. Don't like those. Lots of floss included though.
The only other thing I really worked on this week was Mini Soul Mates. I was able to finish the row and I'm looking forward to the next one. Wings! lol.
Note to the person who asked me if Mini's have a lot less confetti. No, they have just as much as any other HAED so far as I can tell. Just compacted down.
Mini Soul Mates:
And that is pretty much it for last week. I did have a panicky moment or two wondering if I'd made a mistake joining the 2013 HAED SAL last week but I've settled down since. I 'think' I have fabric that will do and I will borrow floss from other projects and pick up a few skeins before I run out of cash completely, and I will stitch what I can as I can. I'm looking forward to it actually. I love the tigers and I know I'll enjoy stitching that chart.
That's all for now folks.
Happy Stitching to you all through out the coming week.
