Well, it finally happened. I joined the ranks of the unemployed last week.
When I was given my pink slip, the first thing that went through my head wasn't, "Oh no, what am I going to do now?". It was, "Now I have more time to tat and finally figure out those hairpin lace looms sitting in the closet". My strange reaction is due to the fact I knew it was coming and made my peace with it. A friend of mine kept telling me to stop worrying myself sick because it won't change the situation and that I should just consider it a long deserved vacation. So that's what I am going to do.
There's no car payment or mortgage to worry about and the credit cards are paid down to a nearly zero balance. I suppose I can weather this storm. No pity or sympathy, please. I don't feel sorry for myself at all. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!
Enough of that! Some tatting news...
I am now a member of the Great Lakes Lace Guild. It's so nice to finally get to talk to other tatters in the flesh. This weekend is a lace convention, but it was full so I'll just stop by to shop the tables. Karey Solomon will be there!
DS9 Designs has Lizbeth thread now. It's $3.75 a ball. Excellent! I love Deb Arnold's stuff, especially her patterns.
Lastly, we're finally getting a Hobby Lobby in my area! I've seen so many people post about that place I was beginning to think I may be missing out on something. So, I'll get to see for myself shortly. Of course, I already signed up for the mailing list in case there are any good coupons....
Anyhow, hope everyone out in Tatland is tatting up a storm and have a good day!
