What Have You Been Up To

I made some pillowcases, standard size, with Thomas the Train fabric! Boy, was that fun! I have two grandsons and they both love Thomas. A friend of mine from Texas sent me the fabric and I knew right away what it was for! I also made some other standard pillowcases, what my granddaughter would call "pretty" pillowcases...so two will go to the granddaughters..I enjoy sewing and with the weather so hot here this past week it was tough to get up the energy to do anything! At one point here in Nashua it was 102 degrees last week. I am hoping this week stays cooler, yes in the 70's is great!
My husband is still out of work, he was laid off in January of this year. He was a retail manager. June 24 his unemployment runs out and here in NH there are no extensions on unemployment! He has tried to find work in stores, calls every day, asking if they are hiring, and the answer is no all the time...so I am asking for prayers! He will take anything for a job and still can't find one. I believe we are heading or in a recession...Times are tough for a lot of people I guess..so if you can keep us in your prayers I would greatly appreciate it!

I will pray that your husband finds a job soon. I was unemployed in 2001 for five months and it is very difficult. Vermont is not much better on the job front. IBM is laying off 400-1000 people in the very near future.

I hope that your husband finds something soon. I know that times are hard, and it's getting depressing to watch the news. It seems like it is always ups and downs, so maybe there is an up around the corner. I'll keep you in my prayers. I like making the pillowcases, too. Yours are colorful and cheerful.
