A Little Glimpse

Good Evening Everyone!
Well, it is the end of another weekend.  I always
 think I am going to get so much done and usually
I am very disappointed.  Well, I am proud to
say that Lehmer and I got a lot on our list
accomplished.  As I have talked about before,
we have been paying rent on a storage unit
for four years.  It is full of stuff left from the
shoppe.  Well, we made a dent in it.  Moved
quite a lot of stuff home to the upstairs of our
garage.  Still have to get rid of what we moved
but at least it is home and not there.  Still have
 a ways to go.  Lots of antique and vintage
props and furniture that I guess we will be
putting on Craig's List.  Wish all of you lived
closer, I would certainly have a Homespun
Elegance Yard Sale.  That would be so
much fun.
Found lots of boxes filled with more frames,
fabric, fibers, etc.  Hope to get all of that
on the blog or Etsy in the near future.
Also, got out and picked up some flowers
for my garden.  Still have to get everything
planted, but that will wait until next week.
This is what I have to share with you ~
"Americans Care About Each Other" ~
my newest design.
I had showed you a few other designs, but I think
I want to get this one finished in time for July 4th.
Just seems more appropriate and I think it is so
true of Americans.  We do care about each.
Hope you like this "little glimpse".
I'll be leaving in the morning to take care of Avery
Monday and Tuesday.  Hope to have more to
share when I return and more to offer you from
the storage unit.
Thank you so much for all of your orders this
past week.  
Many Happy Stitches,
