NEWS and Wedding piece framed ....

Well, I know you all know about the economy and how bad it has been.
I do not know how many of you know that Arizona is really being hit hard both the housing and the government.
In fact it is so bad that they have been doing budget cuts.....
Little did all of us know that Education would be hit very hard.
This week lot of the people that work at the Elementary school with me are finding out that they are being laid off or being released from their contracts.
Unfortunately, for my family I am one of the unlucky ones.
They have informed me that when this school year is over that I will no longer have a job come next school year.
For me this is a mixed feeling but I am looking at it as God is working in my life.....
Hmmmm, please help me know what Your plans are Lord and also I pray that You have another job in store for me......

Ok on an up note..... I got my wedding piece for my co worker framed and gave it to her at her bridal shower..... She said she loved it and tons of the ladies OHHHH'd and AHHHH'd it. That made me happy.

Oh Dawn I am so sorry!
Your wedding pic looks great though! Will keep you in my prayers.

I'm so sorry Dawn about your job. Maybe your state will get a sizeable amount of money from the stimulous package. The states are required to put a certain percentage into education so maybe the layoff notices will be rescinded. The teachers in Boston got their layoff notices this week too. I will say a prayer for you that everything works out according to God's plan.

On a positive note, your WEDDING projects came out great and the frame really makes it even more beautiful. Congrats and Great job!

Hugs!
Mary

I really like this piece a lot. I checked it out last time I was on your blog.
I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!

Oh Dawn...((hugs))...trust me it will work out. I left my job of two years because DH was tired of seeing me stress. I didn't even have another job lined up, then pow! I have a FANTASTIC job now, people who care about me...can't say enough. It will be ok. Love how the wedding pic turned out. Pretty!

Oh Dawn, I know you were worried about that, I am so sorry it came to be. We both know that when God closes a door he opens a window, we have seen it happen many times over. I have faith that you will find a perfect position. ((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))

You wedding piece is beautiful. The frame is perfcet for it.

This is just beautiful. I've never seen this one before. Beautiful work.

Bette said...

Dawn, your wedding piece is gorgeous. It's so nice when people appreciate the effort we make.

I am so sorry about your job. I's heard about the job cuts in education that are coming. My daughter is majoring in music education and realizes she will probably have to move out of state to find a job. You know God has everything under control and as someone said previously, He never closes a door that He doesn't open that window. Will be praying for you. Email me if you need to chat or vent.
