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".

Hi Everyone!

It has been a while since my last Blog.  Faye and I
have been so busy getting new designs ready and taking
care of the orders from the Online Show.  Boy what a
week we had.  I was so exhausted I actually left the
house early Friday and didn't come back until
late afternoon.  Working from home is not a good
thing for me.  There are a lot of conveniences, but
I never get away from it.  It is there so I just keep
going.  This is not adding to my quality of life.
Anyway, I got a little Christmas shopping done.
Can you believe that.  I need to write the things
I got on my list before I forget what I got.
Isn't that pitiful.
I will be announcing the WINNERS of the daily
prizes from the Online Show soon.  Thank you
so much for all of your kind words.  I was
thrilled that so many of you found the Blog by
 way of the Online Show.  Hope you all continue
 to visit often.
I have a little SNEAK PEAK for you!!
This is one of the designs from
There will be six adorable tiny Santas.  Such
quickies that you could actually tie them on
a needle worker friend's Christmas gift.  
I will finish them in several cute ways, but
after seeing all of your finishes, I don't think
any of you need any of my suggestions.
Here he is!
Here are some SNEAK PEAKS of the next two
designs in THE HALLOWEEN YEAR series.
They will be ready the same time as  the new 
design in the Delivering series that I showed you 
a few Blogs back and the Santas 'A Plenty above.
Hope you see something you like!
Many Happy Stitches and Happy Halloween!
