It's Hard to Get Good Help These Days...

And I should know. Nana Sadie Rose can't pay her help really well, but she does have good benefits...I'm breaking in a new helper, and it's been a challenge this weekend.

Several baglets in both sizes, a couple of checkbooks, a handful of drawstring bags, and a few totes, like this Knitnana shoulder bag were produced (and some are mostly done, will be finished in the next day or so)

Cute fabric, eh? I loved it when I saw it and this made up nicely...

But as I said, breaking in the help and getting them trained properly is never easy:

These days, it's hard to keep folks interested in their work...

But finally Tonk showed a bit of interest in the position of Ironing Supervisor:

He can literaly "oversee" the ironing board from his perch on the stairs! No "sweat" off his nose...HA! (but I do use a lot of steam...)

And the Number 1 Sewing Assistant pooped out way ahead of schedule today.

I was amazed to find her sleeping on the job.

I don't know what I'm going to do. I realize I changed the kibble and the bathroom facilities this weekend, but the rest of the food and lodging is their favorite.

Having received a good bit of spinning help this weekend (including some in the fiber room when W left the door open) (but it could have been far worse) (even though I'm finding bits of wool on entirely different levels of the house), I would say be careful what you ask for!

Are they striking for better benefits? You know you're going to have to provide health care soon....oh, you do already? Sweet!

And they (and you) are. Sweet bags too!

I wouldn't be surprised if they unionized at this rate! ;)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
