homespun/spun around/all and sundry
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
Staring into the darkness, I saw not even a remnant of her former delicate beauty but rather a haggard, filthy woman in a long torn coat of homespun.
homespun (n) = a similar sturdy fabric made on a power loom
Behind me I heard the distinct squeak of a floorboard, and I spun around in absolute terror.
spin around = whirl; revolve quickly and repeatedly around one's own axis
I made tea for all and sundry at the office.
He was well known to all and sundry.
all and sundry = one and all
Thank you for your efforts.
