I guess my life is going to get more hectic from now on. Due to the slow economy my work had to lay off 8 of our staff members last week. We are a small company so we all know each other and are sad seeing our friends leave. What this means is that those of us who are left now have even more responsibilities than we did. Time has become a premium for me and I'm not sure how any quilting is going to get done for a while.
I have been doing more knitting instead. I really like the idea of being done
with a pair of socks all at once with no tension variation so I am learning toe up socks 2 at a time. I find knitting easier to do in small bits of time.
On a much happier note my friend Kingsley and his girlfriend had their baby last Friday. Mother and son are both doing fine. Here are Kingsley and Katie at the baby shower we had for them at work and here is baby Zion shortly after being born. They brought him into work today and I got to hold him. He is such a cutie and I have been so anxious for him to be born. I offered to be first in line to babysit. :cD
