New Pattern!!!

A Mother's Love is my newest pattern release - I had it ready last year but... WHEW! Finding the time to get everything ready is another story :)

I gave the finished dolls to my sister - she has a little boy and a little girl, so I made the set for her. I made another set for my friend in the mom's club who has 3 kids - the pattern is so versatile, you can make boys/girls/as many or little as needed. I used blond hair but you can do ... well whatever you like :) I have lots of colors of doll hair to choose from too!
This pattern was inspired by all of the beautiful moms in my life!! I have *many* mommy friends and customers that I know work HARD every single day. I found this poem to share with you:
"A mother's love" by Helen Steiner Rice:
A Mother's love is something that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotionand of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking . . .It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beautyof the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation . . . A many splendoured miracleman cannot understand
And another wondrous evidenceof God's tender guiding hand.

Dollar Sale on patterns

I am having a huge clean-out sale on pre-printed patterns. I had printed them up a while ago for different stores I sell to and for craft shows but I have a ton leftover. Also, since I updated my logo and pattern cover I have leftovers from there too :)

My loss is YOUR gain!! I never sell printed patterns this cheap, it's below cost but I need to make room for new things this year. **I have big plans**

I have one listing for just $1/pattern (on select ones) and then 9 listings of groupings at an even lower cost per printing. You can find them all here: http://www.homespunfromtheheart.com/store/WsDefault.asp?iNew=New

And I am SO SLOW but yes, I'm working on Valentine's Day stuff, new patterns, new ideas - Hmmm? wonder if that's why I'm slow - need to just do ONE thing at a time.

Who does that anyway? heehee!

Finished project! Recycled wool sweater bag

I finally finished my project I started last week :) We've all been sick with a nasty cold that just isn't going away. So I keep starting then stopping my sewing.

Anyway, this is a project from the Betz White book I mentioned in my last post - it's a messenger type of bag. I bought the sweater at a thrift store for $2 and knew that's what I wanted it for. i love this bag, it's really not hard to make - I was worried since I have tried purse/ bags before without alot of success.

Anyway here it is:
I am going to play with wool alot this year - there are so many possibilites!
