Can You Believe It's November already?

Hi,

Where has the time gone? I hope your November is going well. It has been a while since the last ezine. Unfortunately my father had to be placed in a nursing facility and I have spent the last few months getting all the financial, as well as personal, arrangements settle. I am still, and will continue to be, very active in his care.

I have been working hard on getting items about Victorian style Christmas' ready as well as crafts you may wish to make. I will begin adding them in the following weeks and you will be able to find them under a button on the left hand side named "Christmas." Be sure to check often so you can get a head start on your decorating as well as gift ideas.

That said ...

Here are some new additions to Victorian Embroidery and Crafts. I hope you enjoy!
