Just a quickie

I haven't been stitching much with all the stresses at the moment. Mu husband lost his job last week, and whilst not unexpected , it's still not easy to come to terms with . When I did see something that I wanted to stitch , I jumped right in to do it while I was in the mood ,so I have a new start.

It's from the back of The World of Cross Stitching , issue 179 , though there are lots of others , I may end up doing a few of them. The saying on this just reminds me so much of my Daughter , lol. I also love Newton from Newtons' Law , my Daughter had just decided that she no longer wants her two teddies , so they have joined my two , lol.

On the positive side, my Husband has got to go to two sports days , and is able to be at school on Tuesday when our Daughter gets an achievement award , so we're making the most of it .

I can't believe the kids break up from school at the weekend , and come September , both of them will be in school full time. How time has flown.

Thanks for dropping by ,

Your new start is cute Cath. And kids grow up sooooooo fast, I'm not surprised you're surprised! Have said a prayer that your DH finds a good job quickly!!!

Sorry to hear the news of your hubby's job.
Love your new stitching, that may be something I should stitch for my daughter too as she is certainly not a morning person!!
Enjoy sport's day and well done to your daughter for her achievement award.

Christine said...

That sentiment would fit my two as well!
Hope your husband can find something quickly

Sorry about your husband's job, I hope soon things will get better for you and your family. Hard times all over the globe =/

Good luck for your hubby in his search for a new job

Newton is lovely!

The kids broke up here last Friday and all we've had since is rain, so typical

A job loss is never easy - I hope all goes well for you and your family.

I hope your husband will find a new job soon, and a great one too! Love your new project. Newton is always so cute, and with this saying it's all just too adorable! :D

Jane said...

That's rotten news to hear Cath and I'm so sorry, I hope things improve for you very soon.
Love Newton, he's soooo cute and I think it must be catching as I have a DD just the same, only trouble is she's 17 so it's a little harder to tell her what to do AND she won't give up her teddies to me either!!!
Stay strong, things WILL improve xxx
