To my wonderful customers,

I love you! You have been absolutely amazing to me since I opened up shop, and I am beyond grateful.

As some of you know, I've been experiencing quite the complicated pregnancy (we have thought several times that we lost her) and as I get further along, the complications keep piling up. With a toddler running around, and everything else that is going on, I'm having a hard time keeping up with orders.

Thinking forward to having two little ones underfoot, I've been thinking about my options, and I think SusieCues is going to be going in a new direction. After the baby is born(hopefully weeeeeeks from now, and with as few complications as is possible) I will be launching Ellie's Petties: Pettiskirts by SusieCues, as my new venture.

In the meanwhile, all orders placed by the middle of February will be completed as discussed, with no extensions on production time foreseen at this time. I will continue to have a selection of shipping-ready sheets, and changing pad covers available, and as long as I am able, I will continue with custom sheets and changing pad covers, until she's born.

For custom bedding, there are some other amazing work-at-home mom's on Etsy who produce brilliant pieces and custom sets. Check out: Jayna at and Emily at Both are SO nice.

For fabric, I'm madly in love with the products available at Drawstring Studio. Danielle is amazing to work with, and she has a ton of great organic fabrics available, as well as lots more in her brick and mortar store. If you are looking for something, she probably has it. I also love luckykaeru, and have shopped there what seems like hundreds of times :)

I'm not quite sure where this path is going to take me, but I wanted to thank you all for everything. Come see us in the Spring for your frilly, fluffy, girly pettiskirt needs.

I get to spend the day at the hospital today, while they check out my gallbladder. I can think of a million things I would rather be doing...

Will be back as soon as they let me go home.

Thanks for your patience.

I don't know what it is about expecting a girl, but girly-girl things have invaded my thoughts. I was shopping the other day, and saw the cutest pettiskirt I've ever seen, but the price tag blew me away. They wanted almost $110 for one to fit a little baby. SERIOUSLY?? So, naturally, I got the supplies together to make my own, and I am in love.

So, coming just as soon as I've completed all my outstanding bedding orders, awesome pettiskirts starting at $55.

My thoughts for the day, include coming up with sports team themed skirts. We are a hockey-crazy family, and have every size of kids' jersey available. I love the idea of dressing up our baby girl in her infant jersey, but I want to add a little girliness to it. Custom team colored pettis!!

Here are just a few color combos to get us started, I have a dozen other combinations done, but need to get started on my day!:
