Behind on orders...Family comes first

I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that I am currently about 2 weeks behind on orders. I had the flu for about a week which meant I didn't touch my machine (I didn't feel the need to send my flu virus home to my customers on their fabrics) and we are dealing with the unexpected diagnosis of my father-in-law's illness which brought my husband and 2 of my brother-in-law's home from their deployments early to be with their dad. We are on a day-by-day basis right now, and it is only a matter of time before his body completely shuts down so we are trying to come to terms with this all at once. This came completely out of the blue so we have all been shocked to see him go from being fine to nearly totally incapacitated within just 2 weeks time.

I will resume shipping orders within the next 2 weeks but wanted to update everyone on what has been going on around here. While I'm thrilled to have my husband back home early, I wish it was under different circumstances.

Thank you all for your kind words, emails, prayers, and help during this time. We appreciate it more than you can possibly know. God is good, though, and while we don't know his plan, we know it is all in His hands.

Finally, I have a "design"

Cori at Scrap-e-blogs did a fabulous job taking my blog to a whole new level. I'm still working on the last few tweeks but doesn't it look amazing?! Please feel free to grab my button and link. If you notice anything odd or not working right please let me know so I can get it fixed ASAP.

Cori also did a makeover for our family blog (which I have been horrible about updating). Check it out here

She has tons of free templates and stuff on her blog, and she's quick and affordable for custom work. For more of her talent, go check her out on her own site

Thank you Cori!
