Those of you that are "regular" customers that shop in our store or any of you that place orders on our internet site are very familiar with Debby, my store manager. Deb is a wonderfully plesant, efficient, multi-tasker that is part elf and part energizer bunny. I often feel like she is also the other half of my brain.
Debby had foot surgery on Friday. Elective surgery and she is doing very well, but doctors orders are that she spend an entire week with her foot "up" and an additional 2 weeks "non-weight bearing". Deb is receiving excellent medical care. I on the other hand feel as if my right arm has been chopped off and I'm having a bit of a hard time stemming the bleeding! Being me on a daily basis is enough to handle, but being me AND being Debby is just too much to ask. Deb on the other hand is "sitting" at home wondering what we are screwing up in her absense. She also has plenty of time to keep an eye on my blogging and my e-updates, so if you would like to send Deb get well wishes, feel free to post a comment here on the blog, I KNOW she will read it.
In the mean time I've managed to figure out how to make the background of the blog white for easier reading. We've been busy in the shop packing new kits, filling orders and I've been catching up on my instruction writing. We have also been cutting every piece of black and gold fabric up to make Steeler Quilts! We need ALL of you to root for a Pittsburgh Steeler victory on Sunday for several reasons. First, this city LOVES their football team. A Steeler win means everyone in town will be in a great mood for a solid 2 weeks. Then we have a shot at the Super Bowl. Second, my son is a bartender in Baltimore where he takes a lot of heat for being a Steeler fan. Those silly purple bird fans have to learn to show some respect for the Steeler Nation!
