I guess it's time I wrote. I still feel guilty sitting down to write when I have cross stitches that need my attention.
You have all been so kind to ask after Amber. I guess I have to say that my sigh of relief has slowly turned into trepidation. She's back to work, but not back to herself. She's having symptoms again. We are back to the drawing board with diagnostics. Re-scanning, waiting, holding our collective breaths etc. She's been coming to work to take her mind off the "what ifs" - and I've gotta say that she's more productive than any of the rest of us!
It's not that I'm entirely dependent on Amber, (co-dependent maybe) - I am still getting work out the door - But I do find that our ship is not sailing as smoothly as I would like. I'm trying hard to be a grown up and take the helm once again.
If any of you are having concerns about your pieces, PLEASE feel free to call or e-mail. If I don't answer please try again. (I sometimes miss calls if I'm gluing a frame and sometimes an e-mail will slip by me as well.)
Let me show you some lovely seasonal finishes to take our minds off the "what ifs" for now.
I'll update you with the GOOD news just as soon as we get it.
Thank you all for your positive energy. I can feel it keeping me warm and sane.
