If you know the month and year of the magazine I may have it...I'm kind of a pack rat, and they were too beautiful to throw away :)

I haven't visited for awhile. It feels like coming home.

A lovely rainy autumn day project.

So pretty for this yucky, rainy weather. Love the shot of all your thread spools. I still have some from my Mom more than 30 years old...xox Corrine

I went to Shipshewana once and it was the best! Someday I would like to get back there......I loved the fresh baked goods the Amish would sell in front of their farms. I spent the day today clearing out one attic and found things from the 90's too.

Let me know which issue of Home Companion that is and I'll send it to you. I have multiples of all of them...


Hi Charlotte!
I got your email, no problem at all, I'm in no hurry.
I could kick myself from here to the moon for tossing my ME magazines - geez, where did my brain go?! All in a burst of energy and a futile attempt to downscale the contents of this cracker box sized house. WAH! Out went my ME's and my Victoria's and my MS's. SOB!
Isn't it fun to rediscover old projects? Transports you back and fills you with smilies. Your table mat is darling.
Oh! I was wondering if I could link to your darling black cat bag and use your photo of it on my blog? I was going to do a post on Trick or Treat bag patterns and you know I love yours best! :)
Happy Humperoonie Day!

Hope you are well!
