Our family has been in a whirlwind for a few years mostly due to the evils of Cancer. Most of you know that Bob (my sweet husband) was diagnosed with Colon Cancer early in 2013, he had surgeries and chemo and is in full remission!! Due to that, the clubs ended up running behind by a few months, I did my best to make sure everyone knew what was going on and when shipments would happen. I had maybe 1 complaint about the delay and I greatly appreciate the amazing support we received from the knitting community and especially the club members.
About the time that Bob was in the clear we got a call that our soon to be son-in- law was in the hospital, he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (January 2014). He did become our son-in-law in October of 2014. Due to all the health issues in our family, Tempted kind of took a sabbatical (in our 7th year too).
Most, if not all of you, (I know I have at least a few scientists) are artsy kind of people and can understand the desire to create. I am desperately needing to get back to the dyepots and funky colored hands. However, as you can tell we are not out of the woods yet and although I want and need to get back into the colors, I also need to make sure I can be the Mom, wife and caregiver when needed and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I have given this a lot of thought and what I want to do is do 2 small clubs, 50 members or under, 3 shipments each. One Yarn and one fiber, and I will be drawing from my recent struggles for inspiration. These will be “Pamper Me” themed clubs, both with luxurious fibers and goodies. I know that I am not the only one who has been through a rough patch and I also know that when you are the one doing the caring it is very difficult to take a moment for yourself.
Seriously, I had no idea how gray my hair had gotten until I didn’t have time to get it dyed for longer amount of time than normal. Really GRAY! So much of the little things we do get put aside when we are being Mom, partner, daughter, wife and friend when times get hard. At those times just getting to shower and not smell is a win. lol
So if you are interested in a Tempted club with pamper me goodies and really nice fiber/yarn, then let me know as I’m going to do this as a first come first serve. I plan to begin in September with yarn and October with fiber and each club will ship every other month. I also want to put in a disclaimer: if something out of my control happens and I need to delay a shipment, each member will get a detailed email explaining what has happened. I will fulfill my obligation even if delayed. Obviously I want life to work as planned, but life is life and we are not a big corporation, just a little family business.
Thank you again for your support through all the years.
