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".

Autumn Stuff

Hi Everyone,

First of all, thanks for the orders for the Halloween Papermakings.
I'm sure you will enjoy it.  The ornaments are quick to stitch
and the tree is fun to make too.
I mentioned last night that I might have some fun "wares"
that you would not have to stitch.
So here goes.  
If I don't mention that the item is limited, then I will
be able to make more.
This is "Ewe and Pumpkin" and I only have two.
It is a hand-painted papermache pumpkin that
measures 5" high X 5" across.
The cost is $12.00 plus $3.50 shipping in US.
This is "Burlap Halloween Cat" and I only have three.
It is hand painted on burlap and backed with burlap.
It is stitched together with a running stitch and
embellished with a tiny black button eye.
The cost is $13.00 plus $3.50 for shipping in US.
These are little wearable pins or magnets.  They
are decoupaged with prints of my paintings.
The "Fluffy Turkey" is the only one that is
hand-painted.  Please specify pin or magnet.
The circles are 1" in diameter.  The "Triple Pumpkin"
star is 2" across and 1 1/2" high.  The "Pumpkin and
Friend" heart is 2 3/4" high X 1 3/8" across. 
Priced as follows:
"Pumpkin and Friend" Heart  is $8.00.  The "Triple Pumpkin"
Star is $7.00.
"Still Life", "Witch", and "Pumpkin" Circles are
The hand-painted "Fluffy Turkey" is $9.00 plus
$2.50 shipping in the US.
 Next are my hand-painted "Autumn" Cupboard 
Hanger and "Pumpkin" Cupboard Hanger.
They are trimmed with  bittersweet artificial
berries.  The cost is $11.00 plus  $3.50 shipping
in the US.
I do have a limited amount of these.  

Hope you see something to tickle your 
Autumn fancy!
 I take Paypal, Visa, Mastercard,
and personal checks.  Just email me if you would
like something.  I will also combine shipping on
multiple items.

Watch for a sneak peak of a new
Christmas design soon.  

Many Happy Stitches,


  1. I adore my journal that I purchased from you. It's beautiful, it calls to me daily. Thank you for offering such beauty.

  2. Everything tickles my fancy however I'm all tapped out lately. I've blown my stitching budget with all the market releases so I'll have to sit this one out. Thank you!
