New Autumn Offerings!!!!

Good Morning!! This one has already SOLD, but I wanted to share it with you...This is one of Lori's of Notforgotten Farm...I'm going back through patterns I have had for years and most of them i haven't stitched yet...I want to offer things you haven't seen before or haven't in a long time...I will still do some of Jenny Hoffman's...It's not autumn without some of her sweet

Back to my work table..I have a few more things to get finished up, and then I will add them also...So, be sure to check back on my Simple Goodes Stitched By Jennifer selling blog...:)

Have a Blessed Day!

I'm busy busy busy on this Wednesday afternoon....I finally made it back to my work table...I have 10 sampler/pinkeep/pillows to finish up...One of the offerings has 9 separate pinkeep/bowl fillers to the set...

I've been busy in the house the past several weeks...Trying to keep my mind busy...The time I had been anticipating and dreading finally came...Now, it's time for a new normal in my life...My first born moved out and is now in Charleston, SC...The historical city she has loved and wanted to move to since she was 17...Two and a half to three hours away from her momma depending on the traffic...ha!ha! She is smack dab in downtown Charleston in the culture and history of that magical city...

So, we moved her and left her with the promise that she can come back home if it's not what she expected...Each day has been met with challenges with working 2 jobs, downtown parking, downtown flooding, etc...We are into our 3rd week and it feels like 6 months...Taylor even says it does...And no, we haven't gone for a visit yet...But what better city to be able to visit and have mini vacations in....Thanksgiving in Charleston this year!

As of now, I haven't done anything to Taylor's room...I do plan to get the yellow walls gone and replace them with a warm white with taupe trim to match the rest of the house...I have put some of my extra primitive items in there sitting randomly just to make the room not empty...It was hard walking by it and it just bare...A part of me hopes she comes back and a part of me hopes Charleston is all she has ever hoped for and more....:)

So, in the meantime I'm adjusting to our new normal schedule with Mr. Taylor's Farmhouse,  Luke being in 1st grade, Upward soccer starting, and working on Fall offerings...We're into our 4th week of school already....

All I can say is THANK GOODNESS for facebook and the computer...It makes it feel like she isn't as far away when we have constant contact....Like when she calls to ask where something is in a store instead of asking a clerk....Or when she wants to know step by step how to cook something...Or when she calls to just let me know how her day went...I can pretend she is not so far away...But then a child is never too far away from their momma's heart...

I'm still here!!! Yes, I am! I'm so sorry it has been so long since I last blogged...I had no intentions of being away for so long, but I also didn't know how my life was going to be affected in so many ways this summer...More about all of it in another post...In the meantime, I wanted to share **some** of my summer stitching...I started earlier this year on Fall than i ever have before...I'm going through my old patterns I have had for years...I also plan on adding some Christmas here and there in the mix...I wasn't able to do many Fall items last year or Christmas due to the ceramic tile/hardwood floor construction, so I'm really enjoying getting started early...

Off to work on dinner...Today was the first day of school for my 1st grader in a brand new 2 story school...It was a bit overwhelming for me...I can only imagine what it felt like for the children...That feeling always takes me back!
