Independence Day

Happy Thursday Everyone!

So, it has been quite some time since I have updated this blog. I am sure everyone thought I dropped off the face of the planet.

I spent the entire month of May in Las Vegas trying to help my mom run the house while she takes care of my dad during his cancer treatments. It has been extremely emotional seeing my dad go through this.

There is nothing that cancer does not touch. It seems to have quickly dominated every aspect of all of our lives.

Dad seems to be doing pretty well so far. The doctors have said the chemo appears to be working. He is very tired from the treatments, but his body is fighting hard to beat this and I have complete faith that he can and will recover.

Tomorrow, Mom and Dad will travel from Las Vegas to Houston for a two month trip. During that time, Dad will receive chemo and radiation almost everyday. Soon, they will do more scans to let us know how effective the treatments have been.

This week we will celebrate Independence Day! Take a moment to thank a soldier for everything they do for our country.

As far as CutterGurl Creations, new inventory is being added this week!

We are happy to have Aurifil thread. It has arrived straight from Italy. Currently, we stock four basic colors: Black, beige, white, and gray/silver. However, we can order any color combination you need.

Also, there are going to be six great new sewing patterns arriving directly from Amy Butler by the end of the week.

We will be carrying:

The Field Bag and Tote

Mini Dress, Tunic, & Tops

Sun Surf Halter

Cabo Halter

Domestic Goddess Aprons (my favorite)

Birdie Sling (Bag)
I know you will love these patterns as much as I do!

Also, for the month of July, all of my customers who place an order will be entered into our drawing for one yard of Robert Kaufman's Hot Blossom Paisley Fabric!

Remember that I would be happy to create a custom order for you! I offer any variation of cuts and yardage and all fabric is cut to order straight from the bolt.

Thank you all for the support and prayers that you have given our family during this time. You are all wonderful and we appreciate you!

Until next time, HAPPY SEWING SEWING!
