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".

Coming Really Soon

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Can you believe it is Friday.  We have been so 
busy getting some of our new things ready.
It is so much fun coming up with new ideas
and then designing them, but getting them
ready to sell is not my favorite part.
I just want to design and stitch.
Hope to ship these to my AUTO shoppes
and my Distributors this week.  Hopefully 
you will be able to find them at your favorite
shoppe, but if not, I will have them
 posted on my ETSY site soon.
"A Hospitable Ewe"
This design was done several years ago for the 
Just Cross Stitch Seminar in Colonial Williamsburg.
 They host  this event every year at Christmas Tyme. 
Hence the traditional apple cone with a
pineapple on top.  On the back of the blanket
it says "Merry Christmas" and the date.  Plenty of 
room is there to personalize for a gift. Wouldn't he be 
cute nestled in a bed of greenery with some holly berries 
and pine cones or hanging on your tree or cupboard.
You can have him design and pattern only, but
we are also doing a Project Pack that will include
everything but the floss and polyfil.
He is the beginning of a new series.  There will
be a Ewe for each of seasons.  
So cute and so easy to do!  
All hand sewing - no machines needed.
"Delivering A Few Of My 
Favorite Things" 
is ready to be made into a pillow, but I
thought I would let you see him completely
stitched.  Hope you see something you like.
Have a great weekend with
"Many Happy Stitches",

  5. Hello

    I’ve bought "Winter patches" patterns* from your collection in Toulouse (south of France, Alphabets shop)
    Will you allow me to sell the achievement, even détails, in the favor of de Ligue against cancer of Tours, with my sister, which organizes an exhibition in early December ?

    You can see details of this international Ligue here : http://www.ligue-cancer.net/cd37/article/1322_-passion-broderie
    Your name would of course be mentioned, with the thanks of the participants which are organizing.
    the workshop is voluntary (? Not payed) for patients

    Waiting for your reply to start my work, I thank you soon for your attention
