I Want To Share Some News With You!!!

Hi everyone!!..I wanted to jump on here and do a quick post to let you know what is going on here at the homestead...I've been away from the computer working on the giveaway for the next issue of Country Sampler...I got it finished this weekend...I must honestly say I had really no idea what I was going to stitch until I picked up the linen and my needle..All I knew is I wanted the words "Spring Thyme".....So that was a little stressful with the time limit...

So with that finished, Tim and I are in the process of making my first pattern to offer...Then we'll see if any of you x-stitchers out there are interested in it....I showed it to my sister, Heather (Homestead Wares blog), and she loved it and then I showed it to my email friend Judy, and she loved it also....So we'll see!!

So other than that I'm finishing up my last Valentine orders and a long time order to be finished soon....Then on to Spring items...I know all our fellow bloggers that are snowed in are wishing for Spring right about now!!

So I wish I could share pics of what we're working on, but you'll have to wait...UGH!!..I know!..I wish I could show you!!..Along with that I have been decluttering and rearranging in the house...I took everything off my mantle ( My problem spot in the house that I'm never satisfied with) and simplified it...I'm still working on it...I just needed a change and it's looked that way since last June...I took my blue and white quilts down in the hallway...NOT sure what I'm doing there...Just need a color change and then maybe put them back up in the summer....We'll see!

I'm also working on getting emails answered...With being away from the computer my emails have really piled up...Please be patient!!

So until next time!!!~~hugs, Jen

Jen, I can't wait to see what you are up to! Spring Thyme sounds like a good theme... I can't wait to see your tweaking! I can't believe you are taking down your blue quilts! Guess we all need a change every now and then and I bet you find another spot for them that looks as good!

Hi Jen.
I am looking forward to seeing your pattern. I bet it will be awesome! That will just be the start of it though, you will probably have your own pattern line before you know it.

Can't wait to see what you've been working on! Cross stitching is next on my list to learn. I can't wait to see pics of your home after tweaking! Have a great day!

Jen,
Can't wait to see the pattern.
I'm so excited for you with all the good things you have happening.

Mary said...

Looking forward to seeing everything! I say "bring on the patterns."

Angie Berry said...

How exciting! I'm a cross stitcher and can't wait to see what patterns you come up with.

I know what you mean about your mantle. Me too. UGH!! I was so excited about moving in this house because I would have a mantle to decorate. But I am never, ever satisfied with it. No matter what season it is, I just can't get it right. So frustrating for me. So if you ever get yours figured out, please post some pics for me to get some inspiration PLEASE!

Looking forward to seeing your patterns, Jenn! I also have a mantle that I find very hard to decorate. Will love to see your pictures and get inspired.
