Welcome to my blog. I'm probably very much like all of you who love the needlearts. My life revolves around family, friends, home and all things that help to make for a more contented life. When time allows; cooking, gardening, decorating, and collecting are my joys. I look forward to sharing all of these things with you. I also hope to keep you up to date on what is going on at Homespun Elegance, in regard to the needlework designs and the "Plain & Fancy Wares" that we offer.

Wishing you "Many Happy Stitches".

Fall is Coming Soon

Greetings to all!!

I'll believe it when I feel it.  Fall is suppose to arrive in
Virginia tomorrow with crisp temperatures.  The sun
is suppose to appear after several days of blessed,
but in some cases excessive amounts of rain.  We
so needed it though.  We live next to a wooded
area and I always start to fret when it becomes
this dry in the Fall.  We have kids who walk through
the woods going from one neighborhood to another.
I know some of them are smoking, so I worry
about fires.  Thankfully I can stop thinking
about that for a while.
  I am really into my Christmas designing now.
There will be so many new things to show
you in the coming weeks.  Here is a "snippet"
of a new design.
I will have the second design in my new "Delivering"
series soon.  It will be a Christmas design, full of "olde"
fashion charm.  I think you will like it.  Will
show a little bit of that soon.

Update on my automobile accident.  I will be
starting physical therapy on Monday for my
shoulders.  Happy to report that the Dr.
does not think it is my rotator, so no surgery.
Thank heavens.  I hate physical therapy but
maybe I will be even stronger than before
when it is over. 

Hope to get some Fall decorating done this weekend.
Will show some pictures of the transformation
when done.

In the upper left corner, I now have a link to my
Etsy site.  You might want to check there occasionally.
I am going to be listing my new publications and lots of
other finished "wares".  

Wishing you a great night with "Many Happy Stitches",

    I love that little peek. It's so tempting!

  3. I'm glad that you got some much needed rain, and that your recovery has good news, too! :)
