Show and Tell Monday

Wow, another week has gone by. I hate to wish time to go by faster than it already does. Its important to try and live in the moment. Remember yesterday fondly and with gratitude and look forward to tomorrow with hope, but being in the moment today is truly what life is about! Now with that being said....when the hell is this summer going to be over! It happens every year here in Arizona. By the end of August folks are just sick and tired of the heat and are crabby. I love the fall, its like a breath of fresh air to us here in the desert. I imagine much like spring is to people stranded in the snow for months. I try to remember how much I hate the cold and this is why I put up with this blazing heat for a few weeks. Once we get over this hurdle its just beautiful and gorgeous for the next 8 months, so I will patiently (as I possible can) wait for October :)

I had alot of time to sew this weekend. I got alot done and this is a new color combination for a new cupcake pillow. I am still on the fence with my job. We dont know hour by hour if we are going out of business or being "taken over". If we are taken over I will more than likely keep my job, so I am really hoping for that outcome. One thing is for sure, this week is it. There is enough money for one more payroll. I hope everyone can get their ducks in a row by friday. But all of this uncertainty has given my the opportunity for more "calender doodle art." LOL Can you tell how bored I am? I hope everyone has a pretty week, is cool and enjoying the end of summer. Until next time....

Love the new colors, they are awesome.

I know you can't wait until everything settles down at work, one way or the other.

Hi, Gail! the color!
Hey...whatever happens with your job, things will work out...just seems like you have to work with the life twists and turns, don't you?
It is HOT here also...ocean temps 80...air temps 90 and humid...but the squirrels are in full nutty bloom!

Gail, I hope that you get a new owner too. I love how you draw and your new colors. I so understand about your heat. Hugs, Tedi

Hi Gail,
LOve that pistachio cupcake. Or is lime? I am awed by your doodle art. My doodles are usually squares and penmanship drills. I'm sure anyone under 55, does not know what they are. Keeping fingers crossed for good news for you this week.

Sorry about your job this is a difficult time and no ones knows what is around the corner. What ever the outcome there may be a greater reason and purpose, I hope it works out well for you. Take care.

It's hot here too in Ct but probably not as hot as AZ. I love fall weather but don't like the whole school routine. It's a catch 22 because I need the time during the day but hate all of their school stuff. I hope your job works out the way you want it too. Beautiful new pillow colors!!

Hi Gail!

OOh I love that cupcake! Looks like it might be mint flavored? lol Very cute. I feel so bad that you are on edge about your job. I would hate not knowing what to expect. But I am sure things will work out for you Gail. God is looking out for you.
Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
