Following up on an interview/email conversation I had a few weeks ago, I think this person would like to hire me, but may lose the position instead. I'm reading between the lines on both those things, but knowing what I know about the company involved, it does not give me hope.
That said, someone else I've done some work for has also indicated that her company might have a full-time position for me. Details are sketchy and it may all come to nothing, but it's nice to know that my work is valued. Trying not to be too hopeful.
