I am off to the UK this week to join many casketeers on a trek around England and Scotland visiting collections and taking copious pictures of lovely examples - we will try to share some if the hotel wi-fi cooperates! So I won't be able to do any shipping until October 25th.
I am very happy to be heading off - and tremendously relieved as I wasn't sure I would make it. I had a crazy health scare that started on Sept 12th is under control finally, the last week has been a blur of meds and doctors and poison control. Only last weekend, I couldn't get out of bed due to a bad drug reaction to something I likely shouldn't have been prescribed. I was incredibly lucky not to have a stroke or heart attack by Sunday. A change in doctors mid-week and by today I was healthy again. Quite a scare for me and my family - and certainly made the prep work for the trip very hard as well as keeping up with emails/shipments. I lost 10 lbs in five days and finally my thinking is clearing up. When I get back - DNA tests (a new thing) to determine the extent of the drug sensitivities (a life-long problem that most doctors were ignoring and assigning as some sort of new-age resistance to taking meds) and maybe life-alert tags (Can you embroidery a holder for those?).
So I am pretty happy today - everything looks pretty crisp and blue - life is good! Taking tomorrow off to travel with my family and do something fun. And I might embroider too!
So if you have emailed me recently and I didn't respond or if I sent your order to the wrong address - I apologize - I wasn't myself and I will work to get things taken care of as soon as I get back.
