I'd like to apologize for the beadiecritters.com website being down. It's a domain name registration problem. I have attempted to contact my site sponsor to get that taken care of (it's in his name, so I can't even pay it if I wanted to). I'll continue trying to reach him and hopefully the site will be up soon.
I'm currently recovering from my son's wedding and getting ready to go on a vacation. After I return from my trip, I'll figure out something to do with the site if the domain name problem hasn't been taken care of. I also plan to begin posting patterns on the blog at that point.
Thanks for your patience!
