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".

Journals Offered

I'm thinking Christmas presents.  Can you believe that!
I found a few of my journals on the shelf, some adorned 
with my art work (decoupaged) or my needlework 
(also decoupaged).  These are stamped with
"House Notes".  I use mine to record things like paint
colors, annual appointments (such as the exterminator),
what and when I plant flowers and bushes, when I buy
and what I pay for household equipment, etc.
Just a general household record.  Great for newly weds
and first time homeowners.
These journals are for my blog friends at the special
price of $7.00 plus $2.50 shipping.
These are the only ones I have made right now, so
first come, first serve.
SOLD  "Courtship" House Notes
SOLD  "Sampler Motif" House Notes
SOLD  "Freedom House" House Notes
SOLD  "Be At Peace" House Notes
All of these journals measure 5 1/2" X 8" and are
decoupaged with the art work.  Each has about
50 tan ruled pages.A Sheltering Tree bookmark 
will be included.

All of these journals can be stamped with 
Let me know if you would like any of the 

"Stitching Notes" as well.  I will have to make
them as ordered, so they will be at the
 original price of $10.00 plus $2.50 shipping.
Many Happy Stitches,
