The Future

Wouldn't it be nice if sometimes we could get a little glimpse of what the future holds for us?  I work in an industry which is totally reliant on government funding for it's existence.  The whole world is going through a tough financial period and our little state of Tasmania is not exempt.  Our government has had to make lots of harsh and hard decisions and I fear that I am about to become one of it's victims in the near future.

Even though that would mean a financial disaster in many ways for us - I know that we will make it through one way or another - My frugal ways will come in very handy I am sure.  Don't get me wrong it's not all gloom and doom - I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and maybe that phase of my life is coming to an end and I am ready to open another door?   

I have been planning and plotting for months for what may be the next phase and in some ways I feel that I am prepared for whatever happens.  It could be just the push I need.........

One thing is for sure I miss blog land.  I haven't been around much lately but that's about to change.  I have missed visiting all of your gorgeous blogs and I have missed telling you about what has been happening around here.

Today was a day off for me but mother nature didn't play fair - It was a dark and dreary day of just 8 degrees.  No sunshine at all.  Bring on Spring !

I did manage to finish off a project today for a magazine commission and wrote a pattern

And I framed this gorgeous stitchery of Natalie Bird's that I finished during the week.

And of course I had my fur babies to keep me company as Mr Fee is interstate at the moment.  Hasn't little Charlie grown?  He is off to his first Cat Show on Sunday.  I hope he likes it.

I'll be back really soon.

Hugs - Fee XX

Your little kitten is just gorgeouss. So sorry to hear about your job but your positive attitude is fantastic and you are right - you never now what is around the corner. xxx

Love your positive attitude. No use worrying over something beforehand when that time could be better spent on creative planning. Hope you and Charlie enjoy the show :).

Good Luck to Charlie - our premier will tell you he has had to make hard and harsh decisions too - mmm - I think he's jsut going to burden the federal government. Hang in there - you optimism will help plenty if the inevitable comes.

Yes I totally agree, all things happen for a reason and we usually come out the end of major changes much happier and stronger (I did)
Good luck to you my friend and hopefully we can both hang around Blogland a bit more xxx

Fee I see you have run on to a bump in the road of life. I don't know your situation but I wish you the best. What better pen pal could I have found you are the best. God has a way of watching over us in our time of need. He has spared me many times as He will you. Best of Luck.
