DMC issued a press release that I received, as a subscriber to their newsletter:

In recent days, there has been a significant amount of information in the form of press releases, media reports, etc. regarding financial difficulties and operational restructuring plans at the DMC corporate offices in France. Those activities and court filings within the legal system in France are directed towards seeking a formal resolution for two divisions within the DMC Corporation (Sportswear fabric and a small chain of retail stores found only in France) that are not related to the embroidery thread and craft activities, which remain the core business of the corporation. In addition, the U.S. division of DMC operates as a separate legal and financial entity with its own financing, receivables, payables, etc, and as such, is not included in any legal filing or petitions to the courts that may occur in France. We are financially secure and fully prepared to conduct business as usual here in the U.S. DMC has been manufacturing needlework threads for 262 years and we remain committed to providing stitchers with the highest quality embroidery floss, specialty threads, needlework fabrics and other supplies they need to continue to enjoy the wonderful art of needlework. We look forward to continuing to serve all of our customers and loyal users of DMC products into the future. Joseph D. McCabe President/CEO DMC, Inc.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch:

GGGRRR!!! I should have composed this entry in Live Writer- blogger seems so slow & difficult!
Um- this is Tipsy Tree sans beads & charm from the JCS 2007 Ornament issue. My GNTA & CC substitutions on 32 ct. Natural linen (stash on hand). Boss's schedule has been erratic lately, with PITA clients stopping in around lunch time. Often.
Good ride tonight; one of the trainers watched her canter to the right and thought she didn't look lame so much as just weak in the hind end/hocks. Trotting a lot should build up those muscles.
Had to go to Boston yesterday and pick up the first return load of dorm stuff- gad those 4 flights of stairs times 5 trips just wrecked my thighs!!!

I love the tipsy tree. I'll have to stitch that one some day.

We are trying to find the time to move DD home too. Besides the normal stuff she also has a full size bed, dresser, computer desk, bakers rack and a dishwasher! Help!
