Sorry, we aren't back in action!

Sunday, March 27, 2011

I was going through listings today, making changes to descriptions and adding new pictures, but to do so, I had to leave vacation mode, and Etsy sent out an email saying we're back. Sorry, we're not! I really wish we were, but things are still crazy, and I haven't figured out how to comply with full-on bed rest and sew at the same time.

Our Blog feature is LIVE :)

Head over to Seventh Smith to enter their fantastic giveaway!! $350 worth of gift certificates to be won, to a bunch of awesome shops.

Status Update

I got home on a day-pass today, and checked out the status of all my orders. EVERYTHING has been shipped, although some of the parcels were shipped with Parcel Post (when they usually go Priority) so not everything has a tracking number.

I apologize again for all the craziness over here, and ask for your understanding if things arrive a little later than promised.

in times of trial...

I literally dream about sewing, I miss it so very much. The hubby and I had a talk a while back because I thought I might want to change directions with the business... but the more I think about it, the more I am sure it is what I want to do. Wish our house (which I haven't seen in ages!) Were bigger, but we will make it work.

To be honest, I am afraid that this pregnancy disaster and ensuing hiatus from sewing and the delay in getting orders out because of it all is going to affect consumer confidence. Online, all we have towards our name is the feedback customers leave. My communication has been sketchy , at best, over the past month and a half, and if I could chanhe it all and have the uneventful pregnancy i'd hoped for and been able to keep sewing until the bitter end, I would have been so happy. I never dreamt I would have six medical visits a week, and not be allowed to go to my house! I never thought any of this was even remotely possible. As a minor control freak, not being able to SEE the items that leave bearing my name is tough. I just hope that people can understand I am never going to disappear with their money and leave them beddingless. Unfortunately, we missed getting some sets out before babies were born, and I am sincerely torn up about it, but there is nothing I can do. I have no control. I also only have a phone at the moment, no computer, which makes it difficult to navigate through emails and messages efficiently.

When this all blows over, and God-willing, we have a healthy baby to show for it, I know it all will have been worth the stress. I hope you can stick by us, and hope to see you on the other side, when kids and sewing rule my life and bed rest is a distant memory.

March 13 Check-In

Hello :)

The last of my open orders are going out this week. I hope, if you've got an order still in the works you're not too frustrated with us. I've been trying to get as much help with the sewing as possible, but it's taking a little longer (okay, a lot longer) than it usually does, because I can't get out of the house to go check on progress.

Everything is going out this week, because I'm going in to the hospital on Friday again, and won't be back until our Princess is here. She's only been in there for 26w5d, so every day I can keep her in is a blessing.

I miss sewing like you wouldn't believe. Since I haven't been able to do it in weeks, I have been really thinking about life after Ellie is here, and I think I will reopen SusieCues completely. I really love making all that bedding <3

Will still be moving forward with the pettiskirts as well, so we'll just have more for you to choose from.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. Wishing all those of you that are expecting, a healthy and happy FULL TERM pregnancy,
